Life can run us over. We have daily responsibilities of working, paying bills, saving money on car insurance, washing dirty underwear, and getting the recommended amount of sleep. It is easy to set autopilot and walk through the motions. The drab duties of an adult can be a drag. Keep your enchantment and energy free by doing what makes your heart sing.
How do I know what makes that heart sing?
It’s the one obsession that you can happily get lost in. Maybe you get an energy buzz from it or a sense of calming peace. The description can vary from person to person. This is your love. It’s what makes you feel most alive. It is the time when the world has reason, the ebb and flow appear choreographed, and the traffic lights are always green.
You may already know what it is.
Your thing could be maniac crafting, organizing puppy parties, ancient reading, disturbing comedy, velvet painting, 80’s make-up, pole dance exercising, vegan cooking, futuristic hair, mediumship spirit writing, artichoke gardening, jellyfish scuba diving, cookie faced baby cuddling, galvanized tutu making, stamp collecting, under ground bunker remodeling, budget traveling, gold fishing…or literally singing. It is your unique interest. It doesn’t matter what it is, just do more of it!!
I don’t know what makes my heart sing…
You are in an incredible place! You get to explore what your thing is! Try it all. You don’t have to pick just one. The heart has many songs! Its never too late to start, whatever level you are on.
What interests you? What makes you tick? If you had all resources and time available, what would you do? What was your favorite hobby when you were young?
Make a list of ALL the things, even if you have never tried them before, even if you will need to practice, and even if it seems impossible!
Why Should I?
The best part is no one else in the entire world can offer your original perception, ideas, or creativity. You are one of a kind. You are the only one who can do this like you. Life is short or really long, whichever way you choose to look at it, you want to spend time with what makes you feel enchanted.
You are helping people. Believe it or not posting your afternoon outfit inspires others. It helps others find their individual spark. You invoke others to let their light shine. When you offer your unique energy into the big world it immediately contributes to more peace and bliss counteracting what appears as terrible. Perception becomes clearer, smiles brighter, and people become friendlier. The positive energy becomes quickly contagious blanketing those around you with all the benefits.
You are helping yourself. People, often, find when they experience what makes their heart sing, its an instant mood booster! The connection is undeniable. The sense of higher purpose is restored. Letting your heart sing offers an actual break from the ordinary. The transformation is life changing. Allow non negotiable time for yourself. Everyone will love having a spirited more happy you. Go play!
Don’t waste your time on nothing to do! The world needs more thinkers and doers…less watchers.
