Where does Passion come from?
Why do some people have a zest for life whilst others compose a state of exhaustion from every day living?
How do we live with passion?
Vital questions that get you living a life by design rather than by default.
Design – (noun) a specification of an object, manifested by an agent, intended to accomplish goals.
Default – (noun) in the absence of opposition or a better alternative.
So there you have it! Default and design consist of one little difference. Goals!
The intention of writing down what it is you want. Let me draw a little more attention to the last two words of the last sentence – YOU.WANT.
Not, what others want from you or what your parents intended for you. No, what you want. Your specific gifts and passions in life which come alive when you take the time out every day to meditate on them.
Whatever it may be for you ! Write them all down and look at them every day.
Go over them to really see (not just look at) what is within your heart. You see, everyone’s answers will be different. So if you can feel them as they move from pen to paper, then they can manifest into your reality. (It’s already within you to do so)
There are plenty of distractions out there turning you away from your calling;
It is so easy to lose focus! There is a million things a day trying to take your focus and put it onto theirs.
So be bold! Be deliberate in focusing on the matters of your heart as much as you can get distracted by the next thing.
I happen to be doing mine right now!
Curled up with a bunch of feather blankets on an overcast day, pillows supporting my head and laptop cradled closely on my stomach as my fingers allow the rhythm of my heart to do the typing… Passion! It is created by doing the things that make you most happy. Most at peace.
So, how is it that we lose that passion? … By living out someone else’s dream & goals.
Depression – severe, typically prolonged, feelings of low spirits from loss of hope or courage.
When its hard to find the courage to face the day, generally it comes down to a series of days when you haven’t been living authentically for yourself. Life gets much easier once we reach out and take a risk on ourselves. No, it is not selfish. Selfishness is the inability to be happy for someone who has found peace in their life because you haven’t found yours.
So how can you ignite the passion?
Start by finding 20 min to sit down and ask yourself – what do I want my life to look like?
The answers we seek are already within us….
Much Love & Peace xo
