Do you have a passionate existence?

This is something I ask myself all the time and especially lately as I've been struggling through some things. The idea of living passionately drives me daily. And I pray it never leaves.

I didn't always have it. I used to be a very depressed person. Sad. Extremely shy. Panic attacks. Fearful. It took a long time to shake those things and be free but I am free from them now. I have a totally different feeling when I wake up each day. I always had a God given purpose, as we all do, but I live mine now. Daily. And it's a feeling like none other.

There's a new song out by Matthew West that I just love called The Motions. I've been listening to it several times a day to serve as a reminder as to why I do what I do, to keep moving forward in this new path and to never go back to where I was. To never just go through the motions of life but to live life ON purpose WITH purpose. It's a choice, you know.

Hope you enjoy~

PS - I couldn't embed the real video, it's disabled on YouTube but you can see it here. His story is amazing and told in the video! I do however, love the light blue background with the red megaphone on the album cover ;)

Your post spoke to me on a personal level. You know, if you hadn't have lived through those difficult times in your life you wouldn't be the artist you are today.
Thank you for this post.
