Monbulk Evening Light
Today I’m sitting in a sun-filled room near Monbulk in the picturesque Dandenongs in Victoria watching the heavy rain falling straight down and sparkling in the sunlight. Is it possible to have a heavy sun shower?
Anyhoo … being in a different space often allows the creative juices to flow and that in turn brings new and different thoughts to mind. Usually my thoughts are about how to support clients or about how I can change my life by learning more and also how I can tap into more of what I love so I can live a very fulfilled life, a life filled with purpose, growth, love and happiness.
Taking the time to really think about purpose is something I often allow time for. There was a time when I did not consider this an important way to spend time, however now I believe it is.
Living a life on purpose is important to me. It’s fulfilling, and it’s what I love doing. It’s listening to the little voice in my head and allowing those thoughts to manifest. Often I’ve changed my path in business and personal life because of the gut feeling I’ve had about something not being quite right. I am prepared to fight for the things I believe in and I’m willing to put in the time, however it is about allowing the time to think things through on a deep level. When we are busy being busy, time for ourselves to take the time to think often goes out the window.
Putting a structure in place to allow this time has been something I’ve created, otherwise I would have been busy being busy and ‘doing’ for everyone else and not giving to myself. Usually the plan includes time outdoors, by the ocean or a river or in another city, walking and looking and allowing the space to think.
It can take courage to change direction, or strength to make the necessary changes, or the resilience to keep going when things don’t go to plan or simply it all takes more energy than you imagined.
It’s worth it!!
By allowing the space to think and let your thoughts take flight, you allow the magic to happen. There will be more hope, love, inspiration, innovation and even more creativity.
When you’re living life on purpose it all comes together. You know why you are on this earth; you know your passion, your magic and what allows your heart to sing. So, you will know when you are there. There will be flow and joy in your life. And who wouldn’t want all this? Most people would.
The question to ask yourself is – are you prepared to take the time to think and do the work to make the changes knowing it will be worthwhile in the long term.
- Take time out to think
- Allow space away from your phone and laptop and other interruptions
- Plan to have time outdoors on your own (or your favourite place)
- Exercise (and that clears the mind and also allows thinking)
- Be prepared to make changes in your life
- Follow your heart
- Take risks to allow changes to happen
- If there is something you love to do, or something that excites you … do more of that
- Move away from what others expect of you if that is what makes you feel fantastic
- Do more of what you value
- Open your heart and allow your purpose to shine
- Allow yourself to be vulnerable
- Show up every day
- Follow your dreams
- Live your life with purpose
Most of all have fun! … and there will be more of that when you are living your purpose.
