Practice your calling!

Do you know what you are meant to do in life?


Are you doing it?

If the answer is “no” or “sometimes” or “kinda”…that’s not awesome!!

It’s easy for us to get in ruts and AVOID doing the things that make us happiest.

That’s exactly when we need to practice our passion the most!

For example, I write in my journal for three pages every morning. I have since 2004.  I’m not perfect, obviously there are occasional days where I end up writing later or missing out. Life happens. But there is a six month period where I wrote not a thing.  I wasn’t happy and so I AVOIDED writing. I also had major body issues during this period, dated someone who wasn’t right for me, and wasn’t running or yoga-ing like I like to. I definitely wasn’t TEACHING yoga.

Thankfully, I realized I wasn’t happy and that something was off. I stopped. I breathed. I started writing in my journal again and started to realize what I didn’t like about my life and what I did.  And I got to work following my passions. (Are you stuck and not sure WHAT you want to do with your life? Check out my posts “Believe in what you want” and “Get unstuck” for help with goal setting.)

We often get confused and feel that we have to jump from point A to Z with our passions. That if we aren’t FULLY doing something, there is no point.  Well, that’s not true.

Every step towards being the YOU of your dreams is a step in the right direction.  Maybe you wish you sang more and you start to sing in your church choir, maybe it means you coach running in the evenings after work, or maybe it means you start graduate school in your free time. Every step is a step worthwhile.

Don’t wait to fulfill your calling. Don’t wait to go after your dreams.

Practice your calling right now.  Find the small steps to live the life you want–here in the present moment.

Why wait for “tomorrow” to go after an awesome life?

Begin today. Right now.

I dare ya! 😉

    So true! But it sure can be challenging some days, especially when juggling work and family needs first
