The shit that makes your heart beat faster and your eyes glow when you do it or talk about it, no matter if it’s hiking, yoga, gardening, painting, sex, meditation, photography, going for walks, helping others- do that. Do it as often as you can. Because that’s what life is about. Creating as many passionate, happy moments as possible. Don’t let anyone stop you from doing the things you love - not even yourself.
I found this quote on instagram a long time ago. I don’t know who wrote it but who ever did, struck a cord deep inside me. I’m a creative being and nature is my jam. I do all of these things and they make my heart sing. I believe they are not the reason for life but they give life meaning. Creating and connecting.
I always hear that if you do what you love for work, you won’t work a day in your life. I don’t necessarily believe that. Some times if you do what you love for work it takes the sparkle out of it. Your creations are demanded and shaped by what others expect, not what you desire to create. I absolutely believe you should enjoy your line of work but it doesn’t have to be what makes your heart sing. Leave that for yourself. It’s ok to be selfish with it. But please, please do it.
