My Passion on Throwback Thursday

Finding my passion in my Facebook Feed

Facebook is a great place to see a person’s passion and what makes them happy. I have to admit, I’ve grown addicted to that feature that shows you what you posted one, three, or five years ago. It’s a great little look back at what was going on in the not-so-distant past. Often there are great pictures from trips I’ve been on, inspirational quotes I shared, or pictures of my dogs. (Yeah, I’m a proud doggy parent.)

Today’s little snippet from five years ago was especially fun.

passion purple pens

Five years ago I posted a status update about a threat I made on the office noticeboard.

“Return my purple pens or endure my wrath.”

If you think this is all in fun, you don’t know how I feel about the color purple or pens. You haven’t watched me search the floor of our local Harley dealership admiring the purple bikes, and you certainly don’t know how I never have fewer than five pens in my purse at all times (Chances are three of them will be purple.)

Even with all that truth, the post on Facebook –and the one on the noticeboard were meant to be in fun.  I wanted to make someone laugh. I needed a giggle myself. It was a difficult time, and one of the few things that brought me joy was my purple pens. (And someone continued to swipe them off my desk!)

Maybe I shouldn’t have been so reluctant to spread my passion around. I hope my pens brought others joy.
