Life Is About Experiences
A friend recently reminded me to figure out why I do what I do. She reminded me to clutch on to the why (I consider that my ‘purpose.’ An ideal which I struggle to understand. I get stuck on the questions like, can my purpose change? If it’s changing, does that mean I’m doing something wrong? Am I fussy, indecisive? Reluctant? Scared? Sometimes when I ask, I end up with more questions than answers.
And still, I continue the practice of coming back to my why. Why did I leave a full-time corporate job to pursue more unsteady freelance work? Answer: Because there was a burning desire inside me that really, really wanted to do it. Then it turned into really really NEEDING to do it.
When you recognize your why - be it big or small why - everything else falls into place. The truth is, I’m often not sure what I do because I’ve been lucky enough to transfer my skills to different places, people and projects. I’ve learned things and have been placed into good company. But I’m narrowing down what I do and why I do those things. I’m getting better at identifying why certain things make me feel better than others. Sometimes I’m really creative and can write something quickly and concisely. Other times not so much. What I do know is that diversity, for me, is key. I know no other way than to be social, active and to be completely inspired by, and curious about, health, wellness, fitness.
I know nothing else than to be passionate, be kind and be good. Like really good in all areas of my life. I spin, prepare and maintain relationships and maybe that’s why I have a ‘communications’ job but really it just feels like, …I’m living a life and hoping that good things come of it (not always, but so far so good).
