What would happen if we all found our passion?
What would happen if we all found our passion?

When Rhiannon was in the NICU for 96 days, I was introduced to the work of the March of Dimes. They became my cause. The thing I championed whenever I could.

My cousin has a passion for cocker spaniels. She lives in LA and started volunteering for a group called Camp Cocker that rescues dogs from Kill shelters and places them in loving homes. Find out more HERE. She has found it has brought her a ton of happiness. Giving her a purpose in a way.

Now I have a friend from high school has done more with her passion. We weren’t best friends growing up, but we knew each other. And we have reconnected like many people, through facebook.

Kimberly was one of 10 women this year honored by L’Oreal Paris and their Women of Worth campaign. Last night in New York City she was honored as a finalist and Diane Keaton introduced her. I am so proud of her.

Kimberly found her passion in helping people, so she created the Bucket List Foundation. Find out more about her HERE. She helps terminally ill seniors fulfill their final wishes.

This morning the HuffingtonPost.com posted a blog she wrote as well. Read it HERE. I’m just so proud of all she has achieved!

I am inspired by people who find their passion. Music is a passion for me, and that is why I work in radio. Talking to musicians about what made them write that particular song, or what it felt like to win a Grammy, etc. It’s what I love.

Can you imagine if we all found a way to do what we love? It doesn’t have to be your full time job. Find some hours in your week to do something that inspires you. Volunteer. Donate. Find your passion.
