Passion In The Bones - Elaine Howard - Book Preview
"We are never too old to learn and pursue new adventures"
This quote comes from Elaine Howard, an American attorney, palaeontology enthusiast, and now author, who has released her book Passion in the Bones: A Guide to Breaking the Chains of Negativity and
Living Your Own Adventure. I've been lucky enough to be invited on to the blog tour for this release, so for my stop I thought I'd preview the book and the ideas behind it, and maybe someday soon (I have a huge reading pile to get through first) some of you will join me in checking out the full book for yourselves. One of the things that appealed to me when I was sent details of this book, was the creative angles taken. Creativity and well-being for me go hand in hand always, so for Elaine to link mind-set, mental health, and pursuing your passions, to her passion for dinosaurs is intriguing.
Passion in the Bones has been described as a 'step by step guide to changing your mind set, exploring your interests, identifying and nurturing true passions, and sharing them with others.' The common theme is all surrounding the fact that you have the power to change your life, and make the most of it, and that passion provides purpose. Elaine describes the four essential characteristics of any life changing passion as:
1) It must be something positive and productive. 2) You're genuinely excited about it. 3) You pursue it on an on-going basis. 4) It's something you share with others.
Would you agree with those sentiments? is there anything else you'd add? let me know below. It's clear from the blurb on the book that Elaine Howard has found her passion in dinosaurs and palaeontology, after challenges with self-esteem and other issues, and she wants to use this help and inspire other people.
