Some people make it look so easy.
I mean, they were born with a to-do list attached to their foreheads. They make you look like you’re standing still while they’re over there smashing goals and over-achieving. You know these people; you went to school with them, work with them, perhaps you even married them. Admit it-it’s kind of hard to be truly happy for someone else when it feels like you’re not moving.
When are you going to find your thing?
Let’s make a shoddy attempt at cracking this nut, today.
Write down all the things you love, including the ones you think are stupid. What turns you on? What makes your heart flitter? What could you spend countless hours doing if you had the chance? What did you really enjoy doing as a child but you gave up along the way? What have you always wanted to try? Write it all down.
Keep that list with you, read it often and update it as things come up.
The length of the process depends on how much dust you have collected over the years. When you begin to discover what you love and what you’re curious about, an image will start to form in your mind’s eye…you’ll see the person you’ve always wanted to be. Those curiosities will breed passion that will impregnate you with purpose (ew), and a path will open up for you that you never saw before. It was always there – just a little worn from years of fear and neglect. Shine that puppy up and get to work.
You know your path, child, now follow it.
P.S- Finding your thing and doing your thing? Two very different things. Still, it’s a start. You’re on your way.
