“It is important to express oneself…provided the feelings are real and are taken from your own experience.” ~ Berthe Morisot
Hey sweetie pies, I hope you all are having are a great week so far! Mine has been pretty good, I won’t complain you know? I have been doing a lot of thinking. What is that I want to do with my life? What I want my future to be? Where do I see myself a year from now? 5 years? 10 years? I have an idea of what I want my future to be like but I also want to make sure that I have a plan for myself. This required me to do some soul searching and think about my many passions.
I have always believed that you should do what you love, what makes you happy. There is a reason why there are things that you love or always thinking about. Think about what comes easy to you. What is something that you love that you can’t go a day without thinking about it?
I had an inspiring conversation with a new friend a couple of days ago and she made me realize just how precious and short life can be. It is important to do what it is that you love and that you dream of doing. The best time to do whatever it is, is NOW! I would rather live a life of ‘oh well’s’ than ‘what ifs’ – wouldn’t you?
So take a moment and listen to your heart. What is it that you want out of life? What makes you feel the most alive? Figure out where that is and then go there. Don’t let another day pass that you don’t work on your goals and dreams. I know I won’t be letting that happen anymore. I challenge all of my sweetie pies to do a little soul searching and discover your passion, your gift, your goal and then work towards that. Plan, pray and then execute – remember that.
What is something that you have always wanted to do but didn’t for whatever reason? Maybe it was because of fear, financial reasons, no plan, or perhaps you didn’t feel it was worth pursuing? The main reason why I wasn’t pursuing my dreams like I should was because of fear of failing. But if I never try then I have already failed myself regardless. Honestly, that was a scary thing for me to admit just then. I always knew deep down that I was afraid yet I would always come up with some excuse as to why I wasn’t chasing my dreams. Vulnerability is a beautiful thing because it humbles you and causes you to realize what really matters.
I would love to hear your thoughts below. Remember we are family here so this is a no judgement zone. Sharing in fears and thoughts can be a scary feeling at first but once you let those negative feelings out it is quite liberating. 🙂
As always, XO and Stay FAB! ~ Stormie
