Today's words are not my own. They're borrowed from Joe Bunting, and I find them inspirational. Perhaps you will too!
"Passionate people aren’t balanced.
Passionate people are actually kind of crazy. They’re willing to
sacrifice money, grades, prestige, power, entertainment, and sometimes
even relationships for their priorities. And yet, who is happier?
Passionate people or balanced people? You decide: are you going to be
passionate or balanced."
