Why does every new passion start off with a rush of positive energy and excitement and then die?
Alacrity lives for the short-term. What's new becomes old. Boredom strikes, a new and superior product emerges that we have to have. We also give up on our passions. The work involved outweighs the sticktuitiveness to achieve it.
Passion is a tricky subject. We can cultivate it through gratitude, but it'll never reverberate with the enthusiasm it once did. Maybe, it is time to try something new.
