What is interesting about people who are passionate about something, is that they can often tell you when they became involved in the cause or activity and why. That often gives us the mistaken idea that you need to already know that you are going to be super involved in something before you begin it.

It is important to keep in mind that living life with passion usually means that you are investing in something.
The way you dress has an impact. The problem is, where does the chain begin. Of course, adults decide how they dress themselves, so your self esteem and body image are impacting what you choose to purchase before you show it to the world.
