I'm grateful to wake this morning to some of my favorite sounds. I'm grateful for the sound of a distant train and the woods enlivened after a night storm. I'm grateful for the rain and light show we got last night. I'm grateful to be at this place in my life, focusing on my blessings and feeling so grateful. We are all unique; having different experiences, interests and struggles. We have different interests, insights, and passions. Yet in talking about our passions we can cross these differences and connect with that feeling we share. If you are wondering what your passion is, listen to what you speak about every chance you get. What are your words saying about your passion? I find myself most often talking about the power of gratitude, the importance of the bond between women (especially mothers and daughters), or the importance of self-esteem and self-image in building the life people deserve. I speak passionately about these topics because they mean so much to me personally. I built a business around these passions and I am so grateful each day that I walk this path. I hear people questioning what they "should" do with their lives. My advice, listen to yourself talk. What are you speaking passionately about? Then decide if that is the job you want to have or what job you can take to support having the time and finances to do what you are passionate about on the side. I'm so grateful to be passionate. I'm grateful to speak out about what I feel is important. I'm grateful to reach out to teens and help them through any struggles with self-esteem while they are still young so that they may strengthen their self-love and create the life they want for themselves. I'm grateful to watch this process and be continually amazed at the change people can make in their lives, no matter their age. I'm grateful for the power of gratitude that is my own rock. I'm grateful to live the passion I speak. What are you talking passionately about today? What are you grateful for in your life? What do these two things tell you? May you have a beautiful day full of insight and speaking passionately. May your heart guide you to your dreams. Have a beautiful day, everyone!
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
