my recent fixation on the flow wand and the flow arts had made me realize that happiness need not necessarily be connected to pursuing ultimate riches and finding means to gain financial freedom. i have come from a scenario wherein my afternoons were consumed of finding side jobs and various means to make more money in the pursuit of financial freedom that i had forgotten what it really meant to have a life and why i was going after financial freedom in the first place.
ultimately, the passion fizzled out and i was left with a burnt out soul longing for another release.
then enter the flow arts. at first i was a spectator, fascinated, nothing more. then my curiosity peaked and i dared enter their world. and found welcoming arms – people willing to welcome me for who i am and what i can offer.
and then the passion sparked. i long for nothing more than to reach the zenith of the flow arts – fire spinning. i long to also feel the heat of the flames close to my body as i give in to my flow.
and this is what consumes my afternoons now.
happiness is, at the end of the day, all about giving in to your passion. pursuing it. perfecting it.
