Living a Passion Driven Life
I cannot believe that in 10 days the "Taking it to the Streets" Tour sponsored by Nutiva and Natural Habitats officially begins. Seems like yesterday I decided to make this all happen & now it is here & so very real.
Not going to lie until I am actually out there figuring it out I live in disbelief this is all really happening. Sounds ridiculous I know, but the thought that this girl will be driving all over the USA seems unbelievable & yet is the basis of every action I take each day.
Yes I am still getting used to my miracle status.
As I put together spreadsheet after spreadsheet mapping out this journey I am overwhelmed with gratitude to serve my brothers and sisters. Little did I know when I decided to live a 100% passion driven life that I would be where I am today.
Almost every day someone asks me, "Is your body going to be able to do this V?"
Every time I stop & think silently for a brief second, "You crazy asshole this is never going to work." until I remember my history since living a passion driven life has proven otherwise.
Actually my passion driven life defies all cultural norms & continues to deliver miraculous outcomes so why the fuck can't I do this is the immediate next statement that comes right behind the negative talk.
What is a "Passion Driven Life" really many ask me?
In our global consumer driven world it is almost impossible not to fall into the autopilot of life living day after day with little thought or focus on our individual passion. Most are driven by bills, responsibility & cultural norms which have nothing to do with a passion driven life & everything to do with routine.
Trust me I was so very guilty of this for most of my life. Driven by stuff aka greed and defined by possessions with higher purpose being guided by these shallow ideal's. No wonder my body blew up with Multiple Sclerosis taking control.
Today I have zero. Merely 30 personal possessions, a leased car, dog, laptop & 20 aprons to use for cooking classes.
My life driven by moral obligation.
Reason does not come into play beyond safety & 100% pure self-love. This my friends is a passion driven life.
- "Sure "V" sounds great, but I got shit to pay!"
- "Tell my partner that V!"
- "4 kids, aging parents and a mortgage say dream on."
I have heard it all. I lived each one out for years.
Until I had my entire body blow the fuck up punching me in the face day after day doing whatever it wanted while I was just taking each blow trying to act like a champ, but I am a BOSS.
- A BOSS owns their life.
- A BOSS is conscious & does not follow cultural norms.
- A BOSS knows who they are.
I didn't. Somewhere along the way this BOSS lost herself. Forgetting who she was.
We all have had dreams. We all have believed if even for a moment we could do or be something that dreams are made of. I ask you to search inside yourself to find that place again. We all got that shit we just forgot about it or maybe put it on pause for a stay.
When you are ready to turn the passion switch "on" you need to tap that place again.
Search for it & once you get there ask and answer the questions:
- If I got it all right in 1 year what would my life look like?
- start mapping that shit out with the passion you just tapped.
