I was talking with a friend the other night and she was saying how she had recently read about purpose and that she needed to define hers. It made me start thinking about my purpose. What do I do that really feeds my soul? That gives me energy, wakes me up in the morning and keeps me up at night? I thought about my hobbies — I don’t really cook that much (luckily I have a significant other that is practically a chef), I don’t garden, I exercise but there’s nothing I’m totally passionate about like hiking or biking or crossfit, I don’t love to clean or organize, I love to travel but that’s not something I can do daily, I like to take pictures but I wouldn’t consider photography a passion, I don’t have pets — well anyways I guess you get the point. And she said “Your passion is your health. You need to use it to help others”. I’ve been wanting to share my journey and educate others for a while, and now is the time.
The other day an older lady at work came in my office talking about a situation in her life and she said I have some advice for you — “If you have a dream, follow it out and don’t let it die. Don’t sit on your front porch when you are old like me and say ‘I wish I would have done that’”.
Don’t get me wrong I have a wonderful life and am blessed beyond measure. But I felt like I was lacking something. That something that helps the world be a better place because I am in it.
So that’s why I’m here! I am looking forward to learning and growing with you. Warning — I am crazy and I know it…but the good kind of crazy, I think. 🙂
