Finding Your Passion and Sticking to It

idea-bright

We all strive to find our passions in life and making those passions happens. Finding one’s passion is the greatest feeling to find. How do we find our passion in life? A passion is something I feel is sometimes inherently inside of us throughout our lives. Passion can change depending on what stages we are at in our lives. We can have more than one thing we are passionate at a time. Now finding the passion that is yours can take some time if you don’t inherently know, which is where I am at so totally with you all.

One thing I would like to point out and mentions is that, don’t ever let anyone put you down for the passions you choose to follow in your life. Now on to some tips I have found helpful in discovering my own passions and hope they are ones that help you all as well.

Meditation is a key benefit in finding your passion because it allows you to sit with yourself and focus on the present, which leads to finding a passion or passions to follow. When there is too much noise and things going on it is hard to deciphere the passions you want to stick with in your life , which is why the focus of mediation help gets rid of the noise to be able to focus on you and what you want to do in life.

Journaling on a daily basis is an activity that allows us to get not only the good thoughts out on paper, but to release the thoughts that are holding you back from pursuing your passions. Once you write them out your mind is free to follow and focus on the things you are most passionate about.

This third and final tip I have today is all about talking things out with those that know you the best: family and friends. Talking out how you want to pursue your passions or trying to figure out your passions, can give you amazing insite in how to go forward. This allows you to keep moving, pursuing and following your passions.

This is the best gift you can give yourself in pursing and following your passions in life.

I leave you with this, be true to yourself, never feel bad for following your dreams or let anyone tell you no. We can all make our passions and dreams happen !

Lots of Passion & Joy !

What to Give the Woman that has Given Me Everything?

As I write this Mother’s Day is just a couple days away and it gets me thinking every year how lucky I am to have a mom like mine who supports, loves, pushes and allows me to shoot for the stars.

When I was little she let me play in dirt, sing like I was the next pop star on my plastic microphone, change my clothes 10 times a day like I was a runway model to letting me pack up my blue suitcase when I was 5 thinking I was moving out. The point of all these stories is that my mom let me be me and continues to let me be me so I ask myself, “How do I choose what to get such an amazing mom the perfect Mother’s Day gift? How do I just pick one thing to get my best friend for this holiday?” So I realized if I am having thoughts about what to get my mom, you all probably are too and if you already know, teach me your ways 🙂

In realizing all of this ‘what to get mom,” I wanted to help not just myself, but you all as well, I decided to put togehter a Mother’s Day gift and activity guide for ideas on what to do and what to gift Mom on this special Mom’s Day! Here are some of favorites:
