Energy And Passion
Passion is one of those amazing natural energy boosters we can tap into every day. The trick is in discovering what we are passionate about.
Does it have to be something earth-shattering?
No, of course not.
You can be passionate about anything at all.
I was at an informal birthday party recently where delicious creamy sponge cake was served. A few of us began talking about our preferred bakery delights. Neenish tarts was one of the favorites. Rumored to be an Australian cake, a Neenish tart is a small tart containing mock cream (and possibly jam) and covered with icing of two colors. Usually the color scheme is brown and pink, or brown and white.
Fresh Scones With Jam and Cream
A lady called Nancy said her favourite was scones, but she had tasted some disgusting scones as well as some really scrumptious ones. She told us about how she and her husband had taken a trip back to England and had visited Devon with two friends. Of course they had to stop at a café to enjoy the local Devonshire Tea (scones with jam and cream). She described in detail the basket of fluffy scones, the fresh real cream and the jam with juicy whole strawberries which was placed on their table.
Nancy’s face lit up as she told the story and I could see she was once again tasting the delicious flavor of those scones. Her voice was animated and her whole body reflected the energy she felt from the wonderful experience of eating scones. I told her she was the first ‘connoisseur of scones’ I had ever met.
Just goes to show – You can be energized with passion for just about anything
What Nancy was demonstrating must not be confused with a ‘food addiction’. She was using her taste buds as one of her senses to energize her life. In The Energy Book for Life, I talk about food addiction as a way people can become locked into trying to obtain pleasure and energy from just one thing.
