I have always been a very passionate person – I feel things very fully, and I am either all in or completely out, black and white, yes or no. I see what I want, and I go for it. Every opportunity is a new open door for me, a new path to explore. I take chances, and sometimes I fail. But more often than not, when I follow my passion, great things happen.

The Holstee Manifesto speaks so much to me because it encourages and reminds me that being a passionate person is a good thing. It gives me permission to relish the things that I love, to live life with reckless abandon, to move forward fearlessly, knowing that I will land on my feet.

When you are passionate about something, it shows, in your work, in your relationships, in the way you view life. This Manifesto reminds me that life is precious, and I have value to contribute. I am so happy to be living my dreams.
