Is Passion Outta Fashion?

The cat used crappy English there. Does outta make you swear? Too many questions already? I guess they can stop coming steady. So the cat heard a nut talking the other day and he was as nuts as Squirrels collecting food in May.

Follow your passion.
It isn't out of fashion.
No matter what comes due.
Follow that passion through.

Don't worry about money.
Things will be sunny.
Stick out your hat.
You won't fall flat.

Don't work some crummy job.
Don't be like good old Bob.
Follow that passion today.
Let the rest just float away.

Don't try more than one thing.
No need to hear cha ching.
Follow that passion and you'll be happy.
Listen to me because I'm so yappy.

Follow that itch.
You won't be dead in a ditch.
Or have a sagging fanny,
Stuck in the basement with nanny.

Passion is its own reward.
With it, you'll never be bored.
Who needs cash?
Make a passion dash.

Just go go go.
Passion will show.
It will get you through.
Pffft to the 9-5 zoo.

So come on, chum.
Pluck that plum.
Don't be dumb.
Chew new gum.

The gum of life.
There won't be strife.
Passion finds a way.
Who needs that pay?

Not you, just me.
I'm rich you see.
So I can say all of this,
And still be in bliss.

Pfffft to such nuts. They sniff one too many butts. Passion is nice but it will leave you living in a sewer with mice. He actually called his target chum too while bouncing around like a kangaroo. In most cases passion will leave you broke. So ignore such a bloke. Or would that be chum? Either way, dumb. Passion can grow and new things can show. Don't just sit and pass gas, even if you are as passionate about it as my little rhyming ass.

Later all, have a nice fall.

  2. Live with passion
    Passion opens the door
    Kicks down the walls
    Shouts through the halls
    Picks the lowly off the floor
    Has the audacity to try a little more
    The world is prone to change
    But passion never goes out of fashion! :))

  4. If you can find a happy marriage of the two (financial stability from something you are passionate about) that's a huge go. These days I say my family is my passion, so off to work I go. ;)

  7. Passion is nice
    As long as Daddy rolls the dice
    Go out on your own
    Can't afford a phone
    Can't afford food
    Get the dumpster diving mood

    No, too busy soaking passion
    But it's Oh, so fulfilling
    When Daddy still is willing

    1. That is a great passion to have though
      Even if there is no dough

  12. Following a passion can lead to money, but most aren't that determined and dedicated to see it through to the end. Or do what it really takes. Just an excuse to be lazy.

    1. True, it can lead to dough

  13. When one is young, one can afford this kind of sentimental clap trap. Growing up though means facing reality and reality is that it takes more than passion to put a roof over your head. As a parent I don't want to squash my kids dreams. Let them dream as long as they're attending University full time and have a concrete plan to fall back on.

    Replies
    1. Yep, the sentimental crap won't get you far
      When you need to pay for roof, food and car
      Need to have a plan
      That isn't a flash in the pan

  16. Awesome post, Pat!
    Great thinking, Cat!

    Passion is wonderful, but it's good to be warm and well fed.
    Otherwise I wouldn't want to get out of bed!

    Passions can be avocations while you work your day job.
    If you strike it rich, the job you can ditch.

    Outta doesn't scare me a bit!
    Your playing with language is a hit!

      And yeah, when/if passion pays off
      Forget feeding from the work trough
      Toss the 9-5 in the sea
      And then be happy as can be

      Is not for all

      Even a slight change
      Can help at one's bay

  22. I love to be passionately realistic:)Passion is good as long as one has food on the table and a roof over ones head. I do believe in passion for some it has changed the world (Nelson Mandela is one that comes to mind).
