"The fire which enlightens is the same fire which consumes."

Henri Frédéric Amiel (1821-1881) Swiss writer.

Bad news because, by definition, that you are truly passionate about can ultimately consume you.

Knowingly or not you may devote more of yourself to your passion than you have to give.

The good news is you're not even close to being passionate about most and maybe all you say you are.

"Passion" is simply one more of many "language inflated" words ("awesome", "totally", "amazing", etc.), all of which are used much too often.

Save them all for those few times they really do represent who and what you are.
