First things first - get your mind out of the bedroom! I'm talking about the things you were once passionate about. That thing that hauled your butt out of bed every morning. That powerful thought and urge that kept pushing you through when you thought you couldn't go another inch.

It was that passion that could drive us through a burning building, having us laughing afterwards and say, "Hell, it was worth it!" For some of us, that passion burns throughout our whole lives. For others, (like myself), it gets dimmed or even put out all together when the waves of life roll in - paying bills, taking care of your family, having children, contentment (aka, fooling ourselves into thinking its okay to settle), or an almost unshakeable fear of falling flat on our faces.

I am definitely guilty of some of these things but it took talking to someone I had known and that had known me my whole life to put it into perspective.
