Or just Existing?
It’s really about experiences and doing things!
Your purpose and calling is bigger than your presence. It’s the journey and where it takes you and I believe all the journeys are there to teach us some form of Love, whether it is through compassion, empathy, authenticity, generosity, faith, intention, hope, gratitude or appreciation they all bring with them a greater awareness. All of these states of being stem from Love and if you embrace your journey the limits of where you can go are boundless!
Who are you trying to become? Are you trying to be a good person? At the end of the day we need to be ok at our inner core with what we’re doing.
Are you being authentic with yourself and others? Are your motives genuine or selfish? I think it’s important to stay within those guidelines to be aligned with your inner core or else you will feel inner conflict which isn’t always recognizable, it may just feel like something doesn’t feel right.
Your self-worth and personal value are enhanced when you connect to your inner core because it’s not your outside appearance that projects your beauty and that projection causes others to naturally be drawn to you. Learn to recognize that rejection may not be a bad thing because it helps you to keep your expectations in check. I believe also that it means there is something better coming around the corner and you need to be open to receive. Rejection creates an opening of vulnerability and when you are vulnerable is when positive change has the opportunity to occur.
Unleash your imagination, let it flow through all your senses and it will help you to find your purpose. In talking with others, there seems to be an overall sensing or knowing that there is something different that you should be doing. I felt like there was an energy that was swirling just outside the zone waiting for the perfect moment to come rushing in.
When you finally understand that whispering you will find your voice and your priorities become so clear and the moment you shine a little light, it starts to grow. Don’t be defined by anything other than your own authenticity and capacity for breathing your love of life into yourself and those around you.
Surprisingly, even though I constantly talk about having a plan, mostly all of mine have failed but those failures and my ability to adapt have allowed me to fall into better spaces each time, places I wouldn’t have thought to look or have interest in. Having a plan is more for distraction because it helps you to direct your focus and energy on the steps and while you’re doing those steps you will likely discover something wonderful in between and the plan keeps you open to receive. One thing for sure is that even though a plan has failed, at least I tried it and learned it wasn’t right for me and now I won’t have regret.
I think when it gets to that certain point in your life when you are looking for something to fill your passion, something to inspire your soul, you sometimes find yourself with regrets and sometimes those regrets are for the chances you didn’t take because of some form of vulnerability that prevented it.
It’s who you become by being truthful, authentic and generous with yourself and others. When you don’t do something you know is right you end up living with regret and it will haunt you.
Sometimes the bravest thing to do is to embrace honesty so you don’t allow yourself to be held back from something that could have changed your life.
