Passion, purpose and place
Updated: Nov 5
It is increasingly easier to lead your own life when you have your own vision and mission set before you, both by choice, demand and opportunity. We are all interdependent, why we have to take others into account all the time, but rather than being worried about others' opinions, it is to create a functional and inspiring dynamics that enhances both your own life and that of others. How do we then live this desired life?
1. Find your passion
What do you feel fired up to? A cause or an interest, a creative or artistic outlet or perhaps your role with others such as teaching? It starts by fulfilling what you loved doing when you were a little girl or boy, or who you wanted to become like. Develop these traits or skills and do what your passion is!

3. Make a move
Where can you live your passion and feel purposeful at the job? Which kind of people do you want to surround yourself with? If you don't feel supported and enabled to build your own business, or be employed with your preferred profession, and have a good home where you are at, you must move and take root elsewhere. Make sure it will be a god fit for your purpose and passion!

Chasing a place that is pretty to show in a photo isn't enough or thinking that practising our passion will be enough to make money on. Our passion is the fuel for us to use to serve others with what they and society needs, in a way that also is in harmony with nature. To do this require you to be authentic.
