I recently read Untamed by Glennon Doyle and I loved the book. It was one of those page turners for me when I wasn’t expecting it to be. Heck, I didn’t even know what I was getting myself into just knew that the book had been recommended. While I was reading the book, so many light bulbs were going off. She writes about being in cages, basically being stuck in beliefs that we were raised on and never really giving them a second thought. When I finished the book, I knew that it was a powerful one, one that could really open the eyes of people.
Now that it has been a few weeks and I have sat with the book, it has only made open my eyes more. It has led me to thinking about finding your passion and doing things you love.
Which always leads me back to the question, what makes my heart burn with passion? What ignites my soul? How do you figure out the answers to these questions?
I asked a friend and their response made sense. You don’t. You do what feels right and what you find fulfillment in. Which is exactly correct because the things that bring you fulfillment, bring you joy and happiness which bring you overall peace.
But what if you don’t know what fulfills you? What if you have gone for so long doing things that other people thought was best for you? Society, family, and people you know who have your best interest at heart but may not actually know what lies in your heart. Then what? What if you are so focused on keeping your head above water so that you don’t drown that you have forgotten what brings you pure happiness. Not the “oh this is fun” happiness, but the happiness that takes your breath away, the one that reminds you how amazing God really is, the happiness that you wish everyday was like.
So where do you start? I heard once long ago to just start doing things until you find something. I have tried so many things and actually enjoy a lot of them, the hard part is finding one to hone in on and actually get started. I also know that you can’t wait for things to be perfect to start, you just have to start. So here is to starting….
Share some love, we could all use a little more love
