Health is a priceless commodity. While food and exercise are at the top of the list of contributing to good health, passion and purpose are right up there alongside them.
So, while I’m all about eating lots of vegetables and going to the gym, today I’m focusing on passion and purpose.
Imagine that you have a job that really lights you up—the kind of job that when your feet hit the floor every morning, you are over-the-moon excited to see where the day will lead.
It’s a job that requires making tough decisions, however, it’s one that you feel called to do. You meet and connect with people on a daily basis. In spite of the ups and downs, since no job is free of the roller coaster ride, you absolutely love it.
Then in a single day, it’s over. You’re done.
Some of you have been in this place, and may be there right now. The business of your dreams didn’t make it, or you’ve been let go due to downsizing…or you’re an elected official that didn’t get the votes.
As the spouse of a recently UNelected official who absolutely loved his job and didn’t get the votes, it’s painful. It’s also very public.
It’s tough to be told you cannot do what you love any longer. AND, it’s tough to know that you’re not doing the thing that lights you up.
Today, are you living a life that fulfills your passion and purpose?
Yes, even in the midst of this busy Christmas season.
I left my job in the pharmacy in 2011 to pursue a calling that led me here. Some days, I’m not sure exactly where “here” even is. It’s that roller coaster ride—and I love it.
Life is short. If you’re not doing the thing that lights you up, why not?
On a recent call with my coach, I had to decide what I was committed to in the coming year.
I’m committed to showing up powerfully for you. As your coach, I’ll help you get back on that roller coaster, even if you aren’t sure whether it’s heading up or down—and especially when you’re too scared to get on at all.
I’ve been there. I get it. And I’m stronger because of it.
I’d love to help you discover possibility. It’s part of the magic of the season. If you don’t believe me, watch “The Santa Clause” or “A Charlie Brown Christmas” or your favorite Christmas classic.
Believe in the magic of passion and purpose.
Christmas blessings and love,
“There is no passion to be found playing small, in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”– Nelson Mandela
