"Peace, Passion, and Procrastination"

Inspiration can come in any form and at any time of the day.  I can be in the middle of a conversation and a single thought from something that happened over a month ago can pop into my brain and take over!  Well today that is what happened when I found what I think is the best title for my blog "Peace, Passion, and Procrastination".

"Peace" is something everybody is truly searching for their entire life.  I found peace "inner peace"  this past summer after I endured experiences that will eventually come out throughout my blogging so that you will better understand.  I will have to give credit to these books "Eat, Pray, Love" and "The Power of Now" which prompted me to further research the subject and eventually link it up with everything I had been taught my whole life about God and the Bible.  The difference is that this time I was learning and understanding it my own way, which I believe is the only way you can truly believe.  Peace is so beautiful because once you find it for yourself, you learn to have peace in everything you do and with everybody that steps in and out of your life.  I started to realize that I couldn't get mad or angry at anybody or anything.  I wanted to make peace with my past and I learned to live in the present moment.  I now enjoy every moment of my life just like I should and I absolutely love life.  Peace is also wonderful because it opens up the doors to the next word "Passion"

Passion is my new favorite word.  By the way I'm leaning towards this word to be used as my very first tattoo which I have been searching for about ten years now.  Here is the link for the official definition  My own definition would go something like "to love, believe, and put forth all your energy into something"  I love having a passion for something and I truly love to see when others have a passion for something.  It inspires me every day when I talk to people who are truly passionate about what they are doing or what they believe in.  There is a bit of a problem with the word for myself because I am too passionate or to describe it better "I have too many passions"  Here are just a few:

writing, reading, learning, life, people, traveling, culture, music, fashion, religion, relationships, communication, nature, animals (dogs), organizing, friendships, romance, entertainment, psychology, fitness, health,etc

Just about anything and everything other than sports.  I can never see myself passionate about a particular team or sport.  I like working out (running in particular) and I don't mind going to games and watching sports, but I don't feel like I need to spend time studying, learning, or keeping up with this subject.  I guess I'm just a girl or whatever, but I just can't get into it.  I tried once or twice.  I bought a book "The Girlfriend's Guide to Football" and I played fantasy football for two years, but this didn't trigger any attachment to the subject at all so I quit trying.  I would rather just spend time doing what I know I like, but at least this goes to show that I will try anything at least to see what happens. 

Procrastination is my biggest, largest, worst flaw ever.  I already know where it comes from, but I won't blame it on her completely.  I will just say that my memories from my childhood can easily explain why I wait until the last minute to do anything and I just live in the moment.  I have countless stories to tell on this subject so I won't go into detail now.  I have mastered the art of being a procrastinator and I can relate to all those who share this fault/character trait.  We are "perfect procrastinators". 

So there is the explanation for my blog.  "Peace, Passion, and Procrastination".  I'm so excited that my blogging has some sort of direction now!  Well I'm going to peace out of Barnes and Noble and go for a run with my dog to clear my head and burn off some of this excitement.
