Why Your Passion Project Keeps Tugging at Your Heart



There was a disturbance in my heart, a voice that spoke there and said, I want, I want, I want!
It happened every afternoon, and when I tried to suppress it it got even stronger.
(Saul Bellow)


Look I could claim to write some sage words of wisdom that tell you why the desire to bring forth your passion project keeps nudging at your heart. But who am I to do that? Really! It’s your heart.

Who am I to suggest that this little seed has been developing for years?


Some may say you were born to do it.


Who am I to suggest that maybe, just maybe, by releasing your passion you are going to fire up others too?

And how would I know that to be human is to be creative; apart from the 100,000’s of years of evidence that suggests we have creatively evolved across time and space to survive and thrive, to communicate and create, what other proof is there?


Furthermore, how could I possibly know that you are a completely unique composition of thoughts, feelings, emotions and experience, and that you have been exposed to millions of different ideas, intrigues and possibilities. I’d just be guessing that. Perhaps this post will remind you: you are unique.


I do know this though, the nudge probably isn’t going to go away.


It might slink off to a corner, or sneak out so somebody else can pick up the passion and go, or get all hissy-fitty and demand your attention when you try to go to sleep, when you wake up, when you’re supposed to be focusing on some other task, or work or activity, when you’re in the shower, on the toilet, in the car, at the park. Get my drift?


That passion-project will sneak right on back in.


Do it (and yourself) a favour – at least get it out of your head and onto some paper.


Let it run free. Let it leap and skip and jump for a bit. No limits.


Then let it rest. Let it catch its breath.
And then wrap a time-elastic passion-project plan around it and take it one passionate step at a time.


So… what is it. What is included in it? What might be included? What is your next step?
You can always get in touch. I love this stuff!

Your Desire to Release your Creative Call will Make a Difference

    I have a friend who is a street entertainer. She dresses in outlandish clothing and complements them with equally outlandish make-up. She is a natural entertainer. She does this for fun. She pops up at random public places. And she gets some paid gigs at community events and gatherings. Either way she loves… Read More

What is a Passion Project?

Hold on Tightly – Let go Lightly

      Hold on Tightly, Let go Lightly I am intrigued by this little quote, especially in the personal and self-development tsunami of quotes that shout out ‘Let Go’. Through that lens it seems contradictory, but I like it. Actually I love it.   I love it because we do at times in life… Read More


  If I could fly, would I?   Would I find the faith to spread my wings? Would I trust the currents and the winds? Would I know the route to navigate? Would I leave my not-knowing at the gate?   Would I let the skies hold me in their expansive palms? Would I let… Read More

The Seduction of a Winter Solstice

  Where I live in the deep south coast of the Great Southern Gondwanaland (aka Aussie – Maate!), winter is slowly swallowing its own shadows, creamy light is barely there and hangs low across the horizon of late afternoon and very early twilights.   Unexpected shafts of sunlight burst through the low slung clouds and… Read More

And the Sky Didn’t Crumble

    So I made the decision to be raw and naughty and real. And I made the decision to spill myself out into the arena. I think that can be interpreted as ‘being vulnerable’. And the sky didn’t crumble. And I didn’t get death threats. I didn’t get set upon by boo’s and hate mail… Read More
