Good morning! I did something I do not do very often today … I slept in! This is something that I celebrate, as there was a time in my life that if I had 3 hours of sleep that was a good night.
Being able to sleep in is a sign to me that all is right in my world. My mind isn’t racing with thoughts, my stomach isn’t aching with anxiety, my muscles aren’t tight with stress. I am at peace.
And there are definitely things happening in my world that in other years would have me in a tailspin – sleepless – breathless – worried – anxious – wound up tight as a drum.
So sleeping in … that’s part of living a passion-fueled life for me believe it or not. Being able to wake up when my body is ready (and not jumping out bed or reaching for my phone in a panic), leisurely entering my day, and excited too – knowing that we are moving into the next step of this process – which was the step that really broke it all open for me.
Living a passion-fueled life is going to look different for you. It’s going to have layers as well, and components that fill you up in different ways. And it IS just the first step to becoming really really clear about your purpose – your reason for being on this planet – as well. It’s all SO exciting!
So yesterday you were reaching back into your memories to remember times that you felt passion or joy or purpose. And you were going to write them all down. Did you do that? I hope so!
Now … I want you to go back over that list, item by item, and capture the feeling that the experience or activity brought you. This can be a toughie … especially if like me at the time I was doing this work … you are cut off from your emotions – existing in survival mode.
But don’t give up! It’s key to this process!!
I’m going to share a few examples that I personally pulled from to get to the core feelings / energy / vibrations I was looking to infuse back into my life and maybe it will help if you’re feeling stuck.
What did I love to do in my younger years? I loved to …
