power from passion

I am high on life.

It sounds corny I know, but it’s true.

I feel alive. My heart feels bigger and is brimming with gratitude.

All because I truly LOVE what I do.

I have just finished a group vision and goal coaching session. This is one of my biggest passions, and when expressed, a powerful energy flows through me. I feel like I can accomplish anything! (To read my post on living your passion click here)

I haven’t always felt this way. In fact, this is probably the first time in my life. And it’s solely the result of consistently focusing on what I love:

communication. inspiration. personal growth.

By focusing on these things, I have brought more of what I love into my life. It’s the law of attraction working.

For me, the barrier between work and play has been removed. I don’t live for the weekends, I no longer dread Monday or celebrate Friday. I have a true balance in my life. My time ebbs and flows effortlessly between my personal, professional and social lives.

To tell the truth, I never really believed it was possible to feel this way. A few years ago I thought that stress, anxiety and the pressure of the daily grind were just part of life. Nope, turns out it was just part of the wrong life for me.

I yearned for something more. I made some big changes. And with those changes opened up new possibilities.

I now know my purpose.

I know what I was put on this earth to do. I have found my happiness through teaching happiness.

Its taken many years for me to stand in this place, and I’m forever grateful for the winding journey. I dedicated a lot of time towards self exploration and enquiry. It was frustrating at times, wanting to know all the answers right NOW! I tried to remain patient, as I knew that with time what I was searching for would come organically.

I now know more about myself, and as a result feel more connected to who I truly am. To what’s authentically me.

So my advice to you – get out of your head, and listen to what your heart is saying.

Listen again .  .  .  listen harder.

Your body intrinsically knows what it truly desires.

What do you LOVE to do? The more you pay attention to your heart – to your passions, to what excites you – the clearer the message will become.

It will become so loud that you can no longer ignore it, or push it aside for a rainy day.

It will force you to act upon it, and your life will never be the same again.

  1. Great insights spoken from someone who is obviously living from a position of happiness and passion. I am right on the cusp of the same revelation (or some would say revolution) and am loving the crescendo. Thank you for the words of inspiration … they are quite contagious 😉

    • Dave – I would definitely say ‘revolution’ 😉
      It’s wonderful that you are embracing your passion. It takes a certain courage to move out of your comfort zone, but a move that will be highly rewarding I’m sure.
      Thank you so much sharing your thoughts, I really appreciate it.

    Terrific to read such a positive and inspiring post. I wish that more of our world leaders and politicians had similar levels of passion, focus, energy, self-awareness and positivity!

    • Sandra – wow, thank you for that very generous feedback :).
      I think the day will come when they do. There’s only so much you can achieve working in isolation, from a place of fear and blame. The time will come when our leaders will finally work together, as a true team to achieve a greater common good. I hope it happens sooner rather than later.

    I agree Sandra. Beautiful entry Jules.

Who else is guilty of letting their meditation practice slip? 🙋🏼‍♀️. . This time of year can see mindlessness enter our field where mindfulness once was. . I feel the external pull - Christmas get togethers, the big to-do list, break up parties, catching up with friends before the year is out, Christmas shopping! . Lots of “DOING”, not enough “BEING”. . When my life gets busy, ironically it’s my meditation practice that gets left behind. . Since hurting my back I can’t practice yoga - I miss my daily practice at the studio so much. It’s more for my mental health than anything else. It’s my hour of zen. And I really miss that peace. . So I’m letting myself of the hook, hello self compassion. . Some days right now my practice might look like five deep breaths overlooking the ocean as I walk my dog, or a two minute meditation in the car. I’m not pressuring myself to “sit” & devote a specific time frame to my practice right now. . How do you keep calm, sane & present during the festive season? Enlighten me below! . 🎄🎁🎄 #sillyseason #mindfulness #presencenotpresents #meditation
