Today feels like a day of transition, filled with motivation to organize my thoughts and desires into a "make'em happen" kind of way. I randomly collect articles of interest, jot my thoughts on slips of paper and file them away in my notebook for "someday".
The collection posses a similar thread through out...living a positive life, doing for others, how to be mentally strong and for the most part, sane. That last part of being sane is purely individual in my opinion....leaves a broad spectrum of possibilities.
Well, today was the day to go through the notebooks and I was flooded with "omg this is great" moments!! First, I must share why it felt so good. I'm frequently confronted with feeling that I'm alone with my thoughts and ideals of joy, believing in the good of people, trying to make a difference for others and glass half full kind of living. You get what I mean right??
So rediscovering these magazine articles and thoughts I had written, felt like...coming home. I was surrounded by common thoughts and ideas I believe in. A smile came to my face.... I was very happy inside.
One of the articles that really spoke volumes and helped organize my nagging thoughts of "I need to be doing more or things of deeper value" came from the November 2011 issue of Oprah magazine. I'm going to share an excerpt because I think it could really be insightful for others too.
THREE LITTLE QUESTIONS TO HELP FIND YOUR TRUE CALLING:
1. How does what you are doing make you feel? Ideally our lives should be filled with a collection of non materialistic "things" that provides an undeniable sense of stimulation and exhilaration.
2. Does it have a positive impact on others? Anything that makes you feel strong, connected and aligned with your truth does the same when shared. Nothing that ever calls you is ever for you alone.
3. Does it turn up your volume and increase the vibration of your life? Whenever you are engaged in the business of who you're meant to be, you're more awake, alive and ready to play a vital part in your world! When others see your light shining, they'll be inspired to shine theirs, too.
The question portion of the article resonated within me and mirrors what I think of often. The article then went on for another 8 plus pages describing how to go about making these changes happen.
Just putting it out there, if anyone is interested in finding out more of the "how to" in the additional pages......just message me! My mind races with the idea of how fun it would be to sit around and chat with like minded people, all on a challenge to find "our calling". There's such power and support in sharing with others.
My "someday" notebooks opened my eyes today, so off I go on the next part of my Journey !
