How many of us wake up every morning feeling joyful about the day ahead?
How many of us are thinking, “Yes! Today is going to be another wonderful day living a life I’m totally passionate about!”
Probably not that many of us, if the truth be known!
So, I’ve been thinking about passion…
When we live our lives with passion, we are connected to who we really are, we have clarity, we have purpose and we consciously live the lives we are meant to be living…
Without passion, something is missing.
Our passions are gifts. They are ours to be used, to be nurtured, to be shared… When we connect with our passions and the things we love doing, we are connecting with our inner selves.. We are shining a light on the inside…
So, your mission (should you choose to accept it!) is to tread the path that will take you there!
I’d like to invite you to take a moment and think back to when you were a child. What did you love doing? What could you have done all day without noticing the time pass? When you could do whatever you wanted to do, what did you choose? These are clues…
So, how many of the things you loved doing as a child, are you are still doing today?
For most of us, it is very few. We have become disconnected from this part of us. We no longer feel free to express what comes from deep within.
So, how about connecting with that inner child and doing something today that you used to love doing as a child. Run in the fields, climb a tree (carefully!), build sandcastles on the beach, paint, draw, read, laugh, skip, jump… whatever, it was.
Treat yourself to that experience, try it for a few minutes, hours or a whole day and see how you feel afterwards. Then ask yourself how you can bring more of that feeling into your life now.
What do you need to do, what do you need to stop doing, what do you need to add to your life? What can you change right now?
Then, give yourself a big hug because you have opened your mind and opened your heart and taken a step towards living a passionate life!
