I wrote the following post for my Physical Matters blog but felt it’s a good life strategy so I’m sharing it here too. Hope it helps you find and improve your passion(s). It’s a process I still have to remind myself to do.
Do Something Bad
It can be difficult, especially for a perfectionist, to do a task when the outcome is not the best-of-the-best. If you do something when it’s bad, at least you are doing something – and that’s good. Real passion can be discovered by doing something purely out of enjoyment. Once passion is involved, improvement is guaranteed.~trvw
“I’m not where I need to be, but I’m not where I was.” A popular quote that holds a great deal of power for anyone consciously aware of his or her journey in growth and development. Manifestation can creep slowly when you think you are ready for a faster pace, but if you take an honest look back, you can see how you’ve propelled forward. Keep the momentum going, make the “need” a “want” and passion will unveil. “I’m not where I WANT to be, but I’m not where I was.” ~trvw
“You will get what you earned, not what someone else lost.” Those words were sent to me via text message and they are wonderful. What a great mantra to live by. It’s certainly easy to feel like we have to fight for what we think is ours in this world, but we are simply going to get what we deserve. The cynical streak in me thinks, “I bet!” However, the more amicable side of me has hope for it happening.
Since I want to deserve grand things, I will work to deserve those great things. The finer things in life are not reserved for a select few, there is plenty for us all. We do however, need to put forward a good faith effort for them to come back to us. Even those people who appear to have it all have faced challenges at some point in her or his life – and if they have made it this far without an obstacle, it will be interesting to see how well they deal when one arises.
I am determined to do great work regardless of how fast I receive benefit. My history with patience could make it a grueling process. However, I’ve been called persistent more than once in my life. There are several opportunities for me invest myself into causes I believe in and that are making an impact on lives. My work at 88.3 The Wind and with LeadHer Radio lets me use my creative brain, while my whole health affection gets satisfied maintaining Physical Matters. These are all entities that I hope will benefit from my contribution, and if I happen to earn something from my input then it will feel wonderful knowing that it’s mine because of what I did, not because of what someone else did not. -trvw
Trying to put myself in a category is not easy…I like so much. Here is an ever-growing, incomplete list of my goals and interests:
- Prioritize properly (family, friends, and faith make life worth living)
- Run for life (health and fitness are a huge part of my life. I battle RA and won’t let it slow me down)
- On-air radio personality (create a career where I get to write and talk to reach people and inspire lives)
- Vegan (a fun choice for me)
- Expand creatively (I enjoy writing, drawing/painting, snapping photos)
- Nature freak (so much beauty, animals are fascinating)
- Empress & Ogre (cultivate a hugely successful, giving business)
I know I’ll continue to change but that’s ok, hopefully only for the best. Please keep visiting my websites as they’ll be improving as I grow.
