Confidence Booster Series: Live Passionately
“Purpose is the reason you journey. Passion is the fire that lights the way.” – Unknown
This week’s focus is to do more of the things in our lives we are passionate about. Passion has a way of making us feel truly alive. When we are engaged in work, activities or hobbies that ignite our passion, the enjoyment we receive can almost be felt on a cellular level.
The energy that is created through living passionately is electric. Whenever I come across someone who speaks of their ventures and dreams with sincere passion, they light up and I am instantly captivated by the level of enthusiasm they radiate – it’s contagious! The same is true for when I come across someone who moans and complains about this, that and the other thing. Around this pessimistic energy, I immediately feel a bit drained and walk away thinking about what a downer that was.
When viewing things from this perspective, I can’t help but think that doing things I have a passion for is really important to my overall well-being. When I engage in activities I love, my spirit is automatically uplifted and I feel hopeful. These passions don’t have to be grand gestures that require concentrated effort. I believe passion can be found in the smallest, most ordinary things we do. It can be ignited by showing up authentically and sharing our energy and light with others around us. It’s generated every time you ‘make’ the time to do the things you know in your heart you enjoy.
Some of my most passionate moments are created through writing, spending time in nature, exercising and connecting with my close people. The best thing about passion, is that it’s as unique as you are and therefore you get to create it however it feels best for you.
This week give yourself permission to delve into some of the things that give you that instant feeling of positive energy. I believe it is so important to do the things we know will fill us up and make us feel good about ourselves. When we live our lives with more passion, this upbeat energy will help ‘propel’ us forward in the direction of our hopes and dreams.
