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.

I met with a client today who has fallen to the bottom of the priority list. . It’s a common theme I see with all my clients, as they’re all women. And women give, give, give & then give some more. . To their careers, to their children, to their friends, to their partners, to the community & to their family. . . There are only so many hours in the day, and if YOU are not a priority, there will never be “enough time in the day” for yourself. . Your cup HAS to be full. To be the best version of yourself, to give from abundance, to be a role model for your kids, to do the best job you can. We show up as the worst version of ourselves when our cup is empty. . Scraping from the bottom of the barrel is no way to life your life. It’s surviving, not thriving, and certainly not living. . How can you place more importance on yourself? . After all, health is not just physical - it’s also the quality of your joy, your peace of mind, your inner and outer radiance. Health is how you show up in the world, how you show up for yourself. . You. Come. First 👊🏼
This was my home for the past week. The stunning Salt Water Creek in the Ben Boyd National Park, on the Sapphire Coast, NSW. . A small campground surrounded by an abundance of wildlife only meters from this pristine beach, a fresh water creek, a salt water creek & gorgeous coastal bush walks. . No reception. No toilets. No showers. No emails. No social media. No phone calls. . I truly switched OFF, literally & figuratively. . I realised I hardly took any photos too, which is not like me! Not having my phone on me meant soaking up the moment internally instead of trying to “capture” it with a camera. . There was campfires, star gazing, paddle boarding silently up rivers bird watching, snorkelling, dips in ocean pools, fishing, coastal walks, swims in the lagoon, body surfing and lots of down time to soak it all in. . Wallabies, kangaroos & goannas shared our camp site. Lyrebirds sang to us, black cockatoos screeched, snakes & lizards slithered past. The fish were out of this world snorkelling - I even saw an octopus, baby squids & a giant smooth ray. The animals were such a highlight for me! . I’m feeling so refreshed & so grateful that I got to experience this little gem of a place with my friends. The 7 hour drive was well worth it! . 🌿🌊🌊🌊🌿 #saltwatercreek #sapphirecoastnsw #adventure #backtonature
Literally my heart melts when I read words like these from my clients. 💕. . That’s my purpose & why I do what I do. I’m committed to making lasting, positive change in your world 🙌🏼. . I take my hat off to all the amazing clients that choose to work with me - their vulnerability, openness, courage & commitment to themselves inspires me SO much. . Thank you for allowing me to have the best “job” in the whole world! . #dreamjob #dreamclients #thankful
I actually forgot that yesterday was Valentines Day. . . Being single it was something that slipped my mind (& half the time I don’t know what day it is anyway! 🤣), until I had multiple people remind me of the fact. . I initially got a tinge of sadness, of loneliness, of wishing I had that someone special to share love with in my life. . But then I remembered that true love starts with ME. . Falling in love with myself. Being compassionate to myself. Speaking kindly & gently to myself. Taking care of myself - physically, emotionally & mentally. Showing myself respect. Honouring myself. Living out my truth. Expressing myself uniquely in this world. . So I nourished myself yesterday with nature walks, Pilates, yin yoga, lunch with friends & most importantly - challenging that inner dialogue that was trying to make me feel less than “enough” because of being alone. . For the first time in my life I think I can say I truly do love myself. All the good, bad & the ugly. . I hope you can say the same. 💕
