Three reasons to live a passionate life


3 reasons for passion imageArticle by Sharon Eden- the Passion Whisperer

Reason 1 – You’re a long time dead!

When I was a child my grandmother was an old woman at 44 let alone 50.  And you can still find women of 50 with what I call ‘the perm and floral dress syndrome’ convinced it’s now all downhill to the graveyard.

When I get clients with this syndrome, I tell them that the 90s are the new 70s, the 80s the new 60s, the 60s the new 40s and the 50s the new 30s.  So why kill yourself off when you’re still a spring chicken?

Connect with your Passion.  Feel its vibrancy pulsing through your veins and live life out loud!

Reason 2 – Passion is the anti-dote to depression

I can’t tell you how many women I’ve worked with suffering from depression who’ve been told by their GP that recovery will take a long time… and they believe it.  Until they came to work with me.

As a woman who was a stressed and often depressed child, a stressed and often depressed teenager and a stressed and often depressed adult, and who went to several therapists who only seemed to make it worse… I know a thing or two about depression.

My name is Sharon Eden and I’m a recovering depressive!  And… I don’t buy into that ‘it’s all going to take a long time’ stuff.  I discovered that connecting with your Passion with a big P (see my previous post) is absolutely key to turning around depression effectively and relatively quickly.

And if it does that for depression just think what it could do for your everyday moody blues!

Reason 3 – It makes you feel sexy!

I promise that you won’t go raving down the road waving your knickers in the air… as if you would.  Feeling sexy is all about feeling very much skin tinglingly alive, present to the moment and the messages from your senses.

Mmm… just see how voluptuous the curves of that vase are.  Mmm… how soft and sensual the feel of that material under your fingers.  Mmm… how honey laden that music.  And, of course, you can bring all of that to your sexual relationship or relationships… what do I know?… as well!

And do you have to know your ‘purpose’ to live a passionate life?  Diary date my next blog post to find out…
