I am passionate about the many problems that the human race faces as a whole. It would take a book to discuss how I feel about the environmental issues alone.

I am most passionate about supporting children with autism and helping their families. I have an awesome job which allows me to work with 3-22 year old amazing students. They are the ones who teach me and I learn from them everyday. My patience has grown and I try to see the world through their eyes as much as possible. The families affected have a lot on their plates and I strive to do everything I can to support them through their journey.

I am extremely passionate about animal welfare! I volunteer at my local rescue shelter and help with abuse prevention education programs for schools! All in all, animals bring so much joy to our lives ; they should be treated with respect and love!!!

I am passionate about my children. I've devoted nearly my entire married life to them and it's given me more joy than I ever thought possible. I've been fortunate enough to be able to stay at home full-time and raise them myself. I have never taken them for granted and thank God every single day for the blessing I've been given to be their mother. They are my everything. I am going to be an empty nester in two days and I'm completely at a loss as to what to do with myself and my life. I know that I need to find a new passion and I'm both excited and terrified to move ahead on that path. I just trust that it will be ok.

I am passionate about my education. Although I went to college right after high school, taking the next step---graduate school---wasn't quite so straight forward. I wanted to get my PhD. in ancient history, and I had to learn both Greek and Latin even to be accepted into a graduate program. So while I was working full time I taught myself Latin, then took classes in both Latin and Greek. I ended up starting graduate school a bit later than most, but I don't regret it, and now I'm finishing up my dissertation!

I'm not going to write about supporting kids with problems or anything because that's what you would expect people to be passionate about. I'm not passionate about anything extreme, I'm passionate about little things in life. The things that you miss when they're gone. I'm passionate about having that walk after dinner for family time. I'm passionate about the a smile anyone could give to me. But the thing I'm most passionate about is the passion that we have for others. The passion that we are willing to spend the rest of our lives just doing something that could cost us half of our income, but that's the intresting part. They give their compassion to others such as a simple deed, I help random people that work at a school I go to and all I expect back is nothing. But the only thing that I expect back from me is the warmth of knowing I shared my passion of helping someone else so they could just have a better day. That's the passion. My passion of compassion.

I am passionate about my mother. She's the one person that I don't get a long with very well, but I like to try to get a long. I'm passionate about her because she puts so much effort (more than anyone else) to help us. She's one of those people that expect more in life but that doesn't happen. I'm passionate about her because she could get that job she wanted because of language problems. So I put her passion thinking that it's my job to fulfil her dream of working in the medical industry in my hands. I can't do all that because I'm not intrested in medince as much as I want, but I'm hoping, that even if I can't I can still have my job based on something to do with medicine. Even if I'm just an office worker at a hospital or an assistant of a nurse, at least I'll be helping people. I'll be helping my mom know that her dream is living in me, and that my passion is fulfiled.

I am passionate about hormones. It's a werid thing to be passionate about but that's something that I'd like to learn and live with. Everyone has hormones, and when the hormones start flaring in teenage years, there's much more self esteem problems. If I can learn about hormones, then I could help my future kids with their self esteem. I can also try to save a lot of kids from doing dangerous things that would end up changing their life, especially if it's suicide. I'm passionate about helping people discover their hormone and how that knowledge can help them.

My passion is my house. I lived in this house for several years when I was a little girl and always loved it.
Some people count sheep to get to sleep at night but most of my pre-sleep moments for years and years were filled with the thoughts of this house and how I would decorate every room.
When I did finally buy this house I was already 40 years old and had a family to help me turn this wonderful old house into our perfect home - my dream house.

I am most passionate about the balance of life. This includes balancing health, love, money, fun, work, etc etc etc. I believe that life does take you up and down. You let lose and gain weight one month and you eat healthy, exercise, and get fit the next. It may seem like a vicious cycle only if you make it that. There is a time to work hard, but also a time to enjoy yourself and play. I think that knowing how to bounce back and balancing the things you need (exercise, health) with the things you love (hamburgers, makeup, fun) is how humans live a happy and fulfilling life.

My greatest passion is restoring our 1910 cottage we purchased 5 years ago. We're moving slowly but surely, undoing almost 100 years of remodeling by previous owners. Keeping the charm and doing away with all the cheap quick fixes.

I am passionate about my life, and living it to the fullest I possibly can. This means splashing in puddles in fluorescent wellies when it rains, endless soirees with friends, and trying to improve myself to be the best I can be.

At 43 yrs. of age, I am passionate about my new start! After being a secretary for 18 yrs. I've left my job to open my own dress shop! Clothing and jewelry have always been my passion but I was too scared to venture out and start my own business. However, after my husband's death I realized just how short life is and how important it is to do what you really LOVE! Regardless of what happens, I am proud that I finally had the guts to TRY!!

I am passionate about helping women recover from tragedies in their lives. Three of the most important women in my life have survived abuse and have either rebuilt or are in the process of rebuilding their lives.
From ending human trafficking and the exploitation of women and children to stopping domestic violence, I hope that through a law degree (which I hope to start next fall... fingers crossed) to working with non-profits like Mercy Ministries and Polaris, I want to see an significant improvement, if not end, to these monstrosities in my lifetime.
