They all tell us to follow our hearts, pursue our passion, live our dreams, live with intention, find our purpose, etc. They all tell us that we need to work hard and take risks. They tell us to craft a life that makes us eager to get out of bed in the morning. They tell us to do what we love and we’ll never work a day in our lives. Well, how do we figure out what this is? How do we venture down the path of unknowns and hope to find our purpose in life? People are eager to tell us what to do, but they don’t tell us how to do it or what sacrifices we’ll need to make throughout our journey.
Inspiration is all around us. People. Experiences. Conversations. Nature. Books. Sometimes we need to think more than we feel. Other times we need to feel more than we think. Nobody tells us how to find the balance for this equation. Nobody tells us the answers. Life is about being adventurous, being confident, and having faith that we will eventually learn our purpose. We need to put aside our fears, worries, anxieties, and move forward in that fearless pursuit they talk about. Sometimes reality slaps us in the face and reminds us that we need to pay our bills along the way, but we’ll figure it out… eventually.
My inspiration: “Become the person you needed when you were younger.” More to come on this in future posts.
