I don’t know if I have a gift or not. Anyone else kinda hate all this talk about finding your purpose and using your gifts?
They say love your job and never work a day in your life? I mean, what does that even mean? It’s all so overwhelming and confusing and.... kept me paralyzed for way too long.
I don’t know if I have a gift or what my purpose is, do you? Here’s what I do know.
[[ I know ]] when I love something, my insides tingle. I talk way too much about it to anyone that even hints that they are interested in knowing more. And “it”, the thing that I love, changes.. a lot.
[[ I know ]] that when I “thought” I knew my purpose I felt like an imposter! I walked around playing a role instead of being real.
[[ I know ]] that the idea of having one gift or purpose doesn’t even make sense to me .... even though I have no clue what mine is!
[[ I know ]] that being told to figure out my gift or purpose kept me ineffective and STILL for a long time. I did nothing while I was trying to figure it out.
[[ I know ]] that what I’m doing here is crazy scary and thrilling at the same time. I know that it’s hard for people to understand where I am coming from or what my purpose is with these posts because I don’t even get it! But I also know that I’ve never felt more alive than when I started this!
I’m just feeling my way through all this as I try to become the next version of me.
So, #pardonMyPositivity on this brand new Monday, [[ I know ]] I’m not qualified to be your motivation or inspiration but I hope I am qualified to be your friend sharing whatever lights her up.
And before you go.... my point is...just go do it, that thing that makes you feel alive & lights you up. I don’t know if it’ll be a success or not (just like what I’m trying here) but I do know that it’s worth it... I think that’s what they mean when they say live your best life.
PS... I also know I LOVE hearing from you in the comments. It lights me up!! Tell me what you know!
