My passion is writing. And traveling. And, of course, talking about fashion, having nice clothes, but also being a good mother, knowing how to smile, living a happy life and trying to stay in the moment. As you can see I have many passions and I believe, that you have them too. Life is too short to be afraid, scared or stuck in the past. It is too short to think and care about people that are not in our lives anymore. Or to forget about our happiness, because at the end of the day, the only thing that really counts is to be happy. “Follow your passion” has become a well-worn phrase. But what happens if you don’t know what your passion is? Finding your passion could be easier than you think. Hunter S. Thompson, the gonzo journalist and novelist, once said: “Anything that gets your blood racing is probably worth doing.” There are a lot of things worth doing that will never bring you money. You don’t have to be great at something to be passionate about it.
Am I also courageous? Be sure I am. In my life I have taken hard decisions and at this point I can say I am in a very good balance between who I am and the person I would like to be. Because, of course, this is not the same. If we want a life of our dreams, rather than a life that is presented to us that we decide to settle for, we must live courageously. If your desire is to be able to have enough strength to stand up to those who are bullying you, don’t allow others to be bullied either. In other words, practice standing up for others who need a helping hand. It is often easier to be courageous when someone else is in need, rather than standing up for ourselves. So by being clear about what you will and won’t tolerate, learn how to find the gumption within yourself to have a voice when it is necessary. This will help you find your voice when you need to stand up for yourself.
Am I my best? I think I am, because every day I keep telling myself that I have to be the best that I can, not for the world or people I work and live with, just for myself. It’s a kind of gift that I want to give to my soul. Just to let it know, that I really care. There is a very interesting research made by Kristin Neff, a professor at University of Texas at Austin. She discovered that:
1) To Make Better Decisions, Think Of Your Best Friend
Because the advice you give to others is smarter than the things you actually choose to do yourself…and you are not crazy! So treating yourself like a friend can help you make better choices. But what about when it comes to your health?
2) For Health, Think About Fido
No, you don’t have to eat dog food. But the irony here is studies show people buy healthier food for their dogs than they do for themselves. So this one principle can help you make better decisions and make you healthier. What about happiness?
3) For Happiness, Think About Grandmom
In her research, Kristin Neff found something that surprised her: being compassionate toward others and being compassionate with yourself aren’t linked. Shocking? Think about it for a second…You’re compassionate with others all the time. You need to start showing more self-compassion, and treating yourself the way you would a friend in need.
What we of course know is that we have just one life…so, let’s live it with passion and courage, this only makes sense! And have a good day! 🙂
