Living our purpose, being in our zone of genius, doing what we love for life, doesn’t need to be hard. Find what turns you on, lights you up, get’s you buzzing and then think how much you’re living in this space? “Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” This quote really awakens me. It totally nails why I think I’ve been fortunate enough to have the success I have to date. I often feel guilty it’s not sucking me dry, exhausting me, dam hard work. Don’t get me wrong I have my days and I work hard. When you’re doing what makes you feel ALIVE though, it’s not work, it’s life, it’s empowerment, it’s your heart beating. Creation.
During my soul-enriching time in Bali, I got something huge. I was so inspired by my teachers Liz Bennett and Kike Benet, I got that one of my purposes in life is to be a yoga teacher. Yoga I do and teaching (photography) I also do, but I never saw this coming. It feels so right. So exciting and so in line with the above. Yoga gives me life, strength, power, connection, compassion, reflection, perfective, space, forgiveness, love, makes me so alive… and as we know “….what the world needs is people who have come alive.” Don’t worry though I’m still going to be a photographer too.
What makes you feel alive? Namaste
