When you are making positive improvements and then it suddenly feels like you hit a brick wall… and I mean hard.
This is a scary place to be because it’s like someone has deflated your balloon and you are back to square one. Back on the ground when you were flying high.
Here’s how to get your passion back: do it again. This may seem over simplistic but you get the energy to do the thing by doing the thing.
Passion is perseverance. So do it again. Do exactly what helped you to get results. The passion will resurface as you work through your setback.
And I believe this holds true for anything in your life as long as you love it.
The perfect example is the relationship with my mom. We are pretty close but it wasn’t always that way.
There were times where she didn’t understand my choices of girlfriends (neither did I but I will never admit that to her), hobbies, or even my profession.
This strained our relationship to the point where we didn’t speak for months. She’s stubborn and at that time…well genetics…you know? I had a little touch of that too.
But eventually I caved and we began to talk once a week for about 10 minutes. Over time that expanded until the relationship was repaired. We both had enough love remaining in our hearts to try again.
Maybe this is not your story but you have loss some passion towards your girlfriend, spouse, honey dip, boo thang.
I find that familiarity can also create distance in a relationship emotionally. Routine can make you less excited with seeing them everyday.
Especially when kids get involved. You know that as soon as you walk in from work you are on diaper duty or toy patrol.
With every other responsibility, you forget what brought you together…the love.
Maybe it’s time to take boo thang out on a date like you used too. Do it again.
