Are You Living with Passion?
A True or False Quiz to Find Your Creative Spirit
by Bonnie Wallace
If it feels like passion and energy is missing from your life, you’re not alone. Most of us have so many demands on our time and energy, life can feel like a daily grind. The juggling of obligations can lead to a lack of inspiration and staying creative. This takes a toll on our emotional and physical health. As with diet, we need a variety of activities to keep us happy, healthy, and mentally open to new ideas and opportunities.
Take this true or false quiz to see how well you are meeting your responsibilities, while also recognizing and fulfilling personal needs and wants. Taking just a few minutes to do something creative can make a big impact on your quality of life.

If you answered false more often than true, you may want to take a look at the questions to which you answered false and see if you can incorporate something of its message into your life. Is there a small thing you can do to make time for those things that fill you up?
