A famous fictional character from the movie “Anchorman” once said:
I love scotch. Scotchy, scotch, scotch. Here it goes down, down into my belly…
Yes, Ron Burgundy does indeed love scotch; And Brick Tamland loves lamp. But my question to you is:
What do you love?
What could you just do for the rest of your life? What is your dream day that will leave you so fulfilled and your heart full of so much love that you would cry tears of joy?
What would have to happen for you to feel like you’re “kind of a big deal”? Maybe you need many leather-bound books, and an apartment that smells of rich mahogany. Or maybe you need something else.
Whatever it is that you need to feel love and ultimate fulfilment, are you on that journey right now?
How is that job of yours getting you toward ultimate fulfilment? If you are actually on the right track, my hat goes off to you. Well done, congratulations and thank you for doing what you love. The world needs more people on the right track.
If you aren’t doing what do you need to do to get on that track, then stop what you are doing right now and get back on there. Build a life that you love or someone else will use you to build a life that they love. And guess what, they couldn’t care less about you. Stop being a pawn on someone else’s chessboard and start playing your own game of chess.
If you don’t design the life that you want, someone else will design it for you – with their own values in mind. That might not work out for you as well as hoped, because your values will most likely be different. And if you don’t know what you value, how on earth are you going to know how to scratch that deep itch? That deep yearning for something that just fills your cup with fulfilment and love.
‘This is YOUR LIFE. Do what you love, and do it often. If you don’t like something, CHANGE IT. If you don’t like your job, QUIT. If you don’t have enough time, stop watching TV. If you are looking for the LOVE of your life, STOP; they will be waiting for you when you start doing the things you LOVE. Stop overanalyzing, LIFE IS SIMPLE. All emotions are BEAUTIFUL. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Open your mind, arms and heart to new things and people, we are UNITED in our differences. Ask the next person you see what their passion is, and share your inspiring dream with them. Travel often; getting lost will help you find yourself. Some opportunities only come ONCE, SEIZE them. Life is about the PEOPLE you meet, and the things you CREATE with them, so go out and start creating. LIFE IS SHORT. Live your DREAM, and wear your PASSION !’
