What Makes Your Eyes Light Up?

what makes your eyes light up- Jessica LawlorIt’s no secret that I talk about yoga a lot, both here on the blog and in my real life.

Deep inside, I know that yoga is one of my greatest passions. However, it wasn’t until just a few weeks ago that I realized just how deep that passion runs- and how obvious it is to everyone else around me.

In the past two weeks, I’ve talked to two completely different strangers and they’ve both said the same exact thing to me after a brief conversation about yoga.

“Wow,” they said. “When you talk about yoga, your eyes light up. You smile from ear to ear. It’s 100 percent obvious that this is your passion.”

Those words, said on two different occasions, by two completely different people, really struck me.

Your eyes light up, they said.

It was something I never realized before.

But as soon as they said it, I knew they were right.

My whole demeanor changes when I talk about yoga. I start bubbling with excitement. I have so many stories to tell. There’s so much I want to share.

How beautiful is it to have a passion so deep and so intense that your body physically changes when you talk about it?

So, I ask you, what makes YOUR eyes light up? Have you found something you love so deeply that you can’t help but smile when it comes up in conversation?

(And if you haven’t found your thing yet, that’s okay, too. Yoga didn’t enter my life until two years ago. Your thing may be waiting just around the corner, if you’re open to welcoming all possibilities)

Tell me about your passion- I want to hear all about it! What makes your eyes light up? Share your thoughts in the comments, please.
