Is it a priority?
#Trust that the nudge you feel to do something you love is for your greater good and the greater good of the #world. Confession: I have not been spending the time I need to make my dreams a reality. My life’s work will not be a priority in life unless I make it a priority.
Sometimes we may trivialize what we were created for. For many years, we may ask “what am I passionate about?” “What are my gifts and talents?” Yet many times, the answer is right under our noses. We may not be spending enough time with ourselves and always busy doing other things and taking on new projects that keep us far away fro figuring out our true purpose. And even when we know what that is, we may not give it the attention it needs to manifest.
What do you find yourself thinking about the most in those few seconds you are quiet and still? What brings you joy or is the thing that allows you to escape from your busy world? If it did not matter what others thought about you , or if it was not the ” in thing”, what would you do? If you did not have to worry about feeding your family or putting a roof over your head, what would you do?
I believe when we follow our hear-our true purpose, we will be taking care of mentally, physically, and financially.
Being able to provide for ourselves and our family can scare us into doing things that are far from what we enjoy and who we truly are.
However, as I remind myself today, we only get one life. Do I want to waste this life not knowing who I truly am and my purposes in life?
Do you want to waste your time pleasing others and just making money? Or do you want to be authentic and say “wow, this is my true calling. This is what I should be doing with my life.” Whatever it is that you are doing, can you say that it is your true calling? If not, then what is?
Do you want to be connected to something greater than yourself -something that energizes you or attached to something that drains you?
Only we can answer these questions for ourselves. We must take time to get to know who we are and what fills us up and not just our pockets or closets.
What are your gifts and talents that you consider to be a hobby? Why are these gifts and talents just hobbies? Who said you could not use your gifts and talents in your career or even adventure in entrepreneurship?
Here’s to living our best life,
