Boomers Mind Mines (Drive VS Passion)

I gotta tell ya to me these two things should generally go together.  If you have drive, you must have passion.  It really doesn’t seem possible to me, you would be able to have one and not the other.  I am sure most critics, and/or experts would agree.  What if the two are not on the same level so to speak?  You have your drive, the almighty physical aspect of it all.   It seems to be stuck in granny gear.  Nevertheless, your passion is full of vigor.  Maybe it is the other way around.  Your passion lacks heart.  We all know that passion is the emotional side of things.  Your emotions could be weighing heavy on your proverbial shoulders.  Yet, your drive, your body is geared up and ready to go.  In my opinion which is derived from much thought.  Wait maybe it is a thought that stems from my opinion hmmm.  Thought VS Opinion  that is a whole ‘nother mine for your mind to step around, over, through, if you dare.  Back to my opinion.  If your drive is there, yet your passion is low.  You are basically going to end up pacing around the house from sheer boredom.  Doing a little bit of each activity that comes to mind.  NO passion no focus you can’t get anything finished.  for instance,you workout, but only for and hour.  You head outside to do yard work, if you are lucky the leaves get raked.  I believe you get the idea. If your passion level is raised yet your drive is down in the dirt.  You will more than likely sit around thinking about all the things you should be doing, maybe even need to get done, and you won’t be able to bring yourself to do them.  For me the problem stems from having too many things on my mind.  Too many activities that I want to get done and I feel like there is not enough time in the day.  No time management skills being put to work here.  Instead of putting my day in some kind of order, and carrying it out with some kind of picture perfect precision.  I let my thoughts fester up there in my mind.  The longer I take to get moving, the more stress builds from not having anything done and time starts slipping away.  Next thing you know the day is half over and not one thing on my list has been taken care of.   I am going to cut this a little short, but I will conclude this rant by saying this.  To turn the epic battle of Drive VS Passion into a tag team event.  You need to throw some focus and commitment into the ring.


About Bigboomer

Hello, first of all I would like to thank you for visiting my blogsite. I am going to tell you a little about me. My name is Ray, I started writing back in high school. Every once in a while I would come up with a few ideas and would write them down. Most of which became poems others became short stories. Some of my inspirations are of the heart, some of them come from the thoughts of the day. You will see, as you browse threw my site my poetry is about as diverse as you can get. I hope that as you read them some will have you thinking of love, while others will make you feel sorrow. I would like some of them to set you off to an adventure. Finally, I have some poems that may make you hungry. I do have some inspirations that just plane turn into ramblings or rants as, if you read in here, you will see. I have managed to get two books published so far, the first one is titled Pathways, it may be found at xlibris.com/RayBohdan.html. there you can view a couple of excerpts form the book. The second book is Mingling Hues of My Mind it is at publish America A little bit more about me. I am fifty-one years old I have three children, Rainney, Elisa, and Anthony and two well, actually, three grandchildren Raeanne Marie, Graycee, and Amaya. I guess I could go on, but then I am afraid this will come out sounding like a dating profile. Part of my site will be dedicated to my poetry, I plan to break it down into different sections and organize it by type/style. Another section of this site will be dedicated to my blog it will be about my rants/thoughts of the day. These will vary from political, to personal, to comical. I will talk about most anything and everything that I feel may be of interest to someone. I also will devote a section to some of my favorite recipes with hints on how to capture his/her heart by winning their stomach. My favorite foods are Italian and Mexican, but this section will not be limited to those two types. I do believe however, that the most important part of my site will be the dedication pages. These will be to memorialize special loved ones and friends, as well as thank those that have made purchases of my afore-mentioned book. This is exactly what you think it is. A way for me to sell my self as a writer. Publicly get my words and thoughts out into the world. Please believe me when I say that this in no way demeans or diminishes my passions for the people and the love of which I have written, and will continue to write. I trust that once you read my poems you will feel the love i have felt, the pains I have been through, and the joys of life itself. Once again I thank you for stopping by please enjoy.
