So I felt there was something missing from my last post about enjoying the journey of life without obsessing about the end goals and I realize now what it is.
The reason why I can enjoy the process is because I like what I’m doing. I chose to follow my passion. Just like the Howard Thurman quote says, “Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
I’m not saying your passion has to be a career choice; it can be a life choice, a way of being in the world.
One of the best ways to figure out your passion is to remember the times you felt the happiest in your life and recall what you were thinking and feeling about the world and find the common link.
My birthday wish for you is to do what makes you come alive. Remember those moments, find the common thread, and incorporate more of that into your life. You will then give others permission to do the same. Don’t do it for me or even for yourself, but do it for the world.
