I love So You Think You Can Dance, though I never watched an entire season of the show. That's because my favorite part is the selections. American Idol got famous for discouraging people for doing things they are bad at. So You Think You Can Dance is the exact opposite, encouraging people to continue doing what they find joy in. The cast is so passionate about dance that, they simply love to see people enjoying it.
This is awesome logic with one convent. If you find joy doing bad things like rape, robbery, murder and taking over the world, then you absolutely should NOT continue.
Now, my passion is writing. I love, love, love do it. But perhaps your passion is making art out of dryer lint. Perhaps you love to fling pumpkins or race lawnmowers. You do not have to be good or great or anything but you to find joy.
What about you? What things do you love to do? Do your friends and family give you a Simon Sermon or are they more akin to the So You Think You Can Dance panel?
