But the dim gray does not impede the promises of the day that lay ahead; in fact, its aura is heightened.
Thoughts, dreams, wants, and wishes swirl around the mind; thoughts of relationships past; dreams of future hopes; wants of security, financial and personal; and wishes of peace, serenity, and calm.
Can you feel these pangs of sentiment, too?
I recently had the privilege of talking with a small group of men and women searching beyond the relationships of the past, be they personal or professional, who dream, want, and wish for life of security, wealth, and happiness.
A few in the group were looking for employment, but all were looking for something more rewarding. We talked about working in your passion; how a living can be made doing what you love to do.
One question raised in the aftermath of the session was, “How do you know what you love?”
I instantly felt a bit of sadness come over me. That question has been playing over and over in my mind ever since.
With hands over my heart, I asked myself, “How do I know what I love?” How did I decide or choose the path I’m currently on? Is this what I am meant to do?”
The sadness began to depart my body. My life’s purpose began to churn inside, rising up to meet the doubt and uncertainty. It’s because of questions such as this one that keeps me doing what I love to do.
My purpose in life is to wrap lost souls in the warmth of my sunshine, letting them know they are not alone while they walk their path. I am truly blessed to be in their presence. I’ve been sent to walk with them while on this Earth.
Or, wait… have they been sent to walk with me while on my journey?
I’m curious: How do you know what you love? How did you decide on the path you’ve taken? Or was it simply Divine Intervention?
