Are you holding back from fully applying yourself to some aspect of your life because you do not feel you are good enough?
Do you believe you have to be the best in order pursue something even if you enjoy it?
Henry Van Dyke once said, “Use what talents you possess; the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best.”
We are all born with natural gifts and we find these talents by pushing outside of our box to discover what feels right. Once you tap into this passion and pursue it, you engage your soulwork. It is likely, whether you believe you are good at something or not, if you feel a natural high, a spiritual spark inside of you when you are doing it, it maybe your calling. Are you thinking it is too much work to build a future that stems from your passion?
A quote from Thomas Edison comes to mind, “Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.”
Once you fuel a passion, although effort is required, it really doesn’t feel like work it feels more like childhood playtime because you truly enjoy what you’re doing. This, my friend, is what life is all about; instead of living a mundane life, work hard at playing and this will inspire a whole new world for you and for the others in your circle to enjoy!
Today, on Memorial Day, I believe it is appropriate to engage a passion; life is too short and precious not to. Do something that makes you happy and as you do, honor a veteran; this creates a beautiful spiritual connection.
