Mitch’s Passionby Mitch on 19/04/2005
One of the things that has always been apparent to me is that I don’t do anything I am not passionate about. Anything that is important to me becomes a priority in my life and gets the attention I think it deserves. Even though my current career isn’t exactly what I had planned on while I was growing up, I couldn’t do it if it wasn’t somewhat important to me and something I truly enjoyed.
I think more than anything I like to look for the truth in everything I do. If I don’t see the point and answer all the why’s, then it really isn’t something that I will go ahead and do. This is one of the major reasons I am the happy person that I am. Of course that isn’t to say that I am always happy, I don’t believe that anyone is, but I certainly consider myself a happy person.
The reason I bring this up is because I was recently asked why I haven’t been writing in my weblog more. The answer is that as much as I have wanted to, if I don’t have the time to really sit down and put my heart into what I am writing, I just don’t want to do it. I don’t want to scrap something out in OpenOffice and upload some half-assed attempt at humor; when my friends and readers come to my site, I want them to honestly enjoy my writing and to see that I enjoy my writing too.
This also goes for my photography. I am more than happy to take some snapshots and put them on my flickr.com account, but when it comes to making real photos and doing my art, I have to be far more inspired.
So things are busy and I don’t have as much time to write, but when I have the time and inspiration, you will be the first to know.
