Find your passion. Follow your passion. Live your passion. Passion forward.
Yun na yung pinaka-gasgas na salita ng 2011 (to 2012).
So what is passion anyway?
We all essentially know the meaning of the word, and it’s even one of the things I value most about my work with Punchdrunk Panda. But when you look up the meaning of the word, the etymology you will find actually says that passion = suffering, from the Latin passus, which means, “to suffer”. And this is exactly what Lois and I talked about when we first met and chatted for 3 hours non-stop.
I’ve been thinking more about the passion = suffering equation again in the past couple of weeks, and today, I had the privilege of attending Lois’ Passion Test at Pipino Vegetarian Restaurant by Pino. I’m taking this synchronicity as a sign to put my thoughts out there and share what 2011’s word of the year is coming to mean to me. (Channeling quotable quotes powers?)
So above is my theory that: Passion is living “uncomfortably” on purpose. (If I die, and that statement is the only legacy I leave in this world, then I will be happy. So quote me on that.)
I started writing this entry at around 1:30 a.m., and it’s now 3:00 a.m.
