optional prompt: your passion
Passion is not something that I am known for. In fact, my husband often kids about lack of emotion about things. I don't smile enough, or show enough enthusiasm, is the idea. Apparently I am supposed to jump up and down and clap my hands with glee, or some similar display of excitement. Except that really isn't me.
I am just not overly enthusiastic. The things that I get truly passionate about, books, movies, music, my family, are quiet activities, and no overt displays are really necessary. If I get excited about a great book, I may hug it to myself, and smile about it, but no cartwheels are needed. A great movie may cause me to cry, but it is not necessary for me to cry loudly or hysterically until someone brings me a tissue. (Unless Old Yeller dies, then it is perfectly okay.) I've never been an overly demonstrative person, it is not my personality.
My passions tend to be hidden or subdued. I see no need to get giddy on the outside, even if that is how I feel on the inside. Big displays like that are simple entertainment to me, and if my husband doesn't understand that by now, I can't help that. I show my passion through my actions, such as making sure his clothes are washed and that he has his favorite foods in the fridge. Besides, jumping up and down really hurts my knees, and my boobs always fly up and hit me in the face.
