Is passion limited?

I've heard from many people that in order to be truly happy, you need to be passionate about something.

But what if your passion is limited? What if there is a point in life where you've run out of all the passion that was driving you to live your life to the fullest? What if being too passionate can make you exhausted in the end?

Should you try to 'manage' your passion to remain passionate for a longer period of time? Should there be a balance between being passionate about something and taking things slow?
