Passion & Purpose

Sometimes, it's tough to push ourselves to get up and do things we really don't want to do, but we do it, because that's what life is all about. We make up all sorts of excuses as to why we can't (or won't) complete a task, move forward, get our hands messy, or start something that has inspired us. But when we do finally push ourselves, we somehow fall into our purpose; our passion. Something we've never thought we'd be good at, something we never thought we'd love.

By looking beyond the "keep on trucking" way of life, which may be distracting (to say the least), actually live your life! Look at me, for example, I started my business as a women's clothing store and randomly discovered that my true purpose, true passion was to find amazing vintage pieces of furniture, tattered and torn, dusty and dirty, and bring them to life. Something I never, in a million years, thought to be apart of my journey, but here I am.

Another vital ingredient to finding your purpose and passion is surrounding yourself with the people and things that inspire us the most in this world. Whether it be a painting, a photograph, a song, or a book. Visiting the places that make us feel good is also another starting point. It may very well be a coffee shop, a restuarant, a museum, or even a little corner store; where you have a great relationship with the cashier: like Tess Home, perhaps? Hehe.

By talking to people, being engaged, being interested, and asking questions, it's the perfect way for seeking your inspiration to work on your passion. Conversing with someone may be a difficult task, but you learn, you embrace, you understand, and you easily become seemingly interested in the story that lies behind the person. Everyone has a story and everyone does indeed have a purpose.

Also remember:

What may start out as a job, may easily turn into an adventure that may lead to that one piece of that puzzle that has been missing: your passion. And that will give you your purpose!

There is a plan for you, all you need to do is take a deep breath and grab a compass, and you'll be on the right track.
