Have you ever been around someone who is truly doing what they were meant to do? There is literally this light, this energy, and this force behind them – coming through them. They are captivating, and shiny. You can’t pull away but yet something almost keeps you distant too. You admire them and judge them all at the same time, all while wanting and wishing that you were like them. So what makes them so attractive? The answer: Happiness, strength, a belief in what they’re doing (or at least trying to do)
I know a lot of people like this and it’s not because there is “something in the water” but because I’m attracted to people who are living their life fully. I mold and create my own life around finding my purpose, living on purpose, and inspiring others to do the same. So naturally I meet a lot of people doing just that. This work is two-fold, on the one side it’s beautiful realizing just how far you’ve come and on the other it’s humbling seeing how much further you have to go.
These individuals have a superpower that allows US the watcher; have this sight – by inspiring you to reach for the stars, the cosmos and beyond. They show you how staying on the path and marching forward is the only way to go if you want to achieve anything. They enlighten us to the fact that there is no ‘overnight success’ but only time, effort and energy. Patience is key when the reward is so grand.
I read recently that most people overestimate how much they can do in a day but underestimate what they can do in a lifetime. In a world where we’re now living to 70, 80, 100 do you really want to just get by? Or do you want the kind of life that’s written about, examined, admired. What's in your heart?
The road is long and filled with turns, dips, hills even rattlesnakes but if it’s a matter of taking that chance and living on the edge or staying back where it’s safe and watching others do it, which do you choose?
I have a feeling if you’re reading this, if you’re on my site and proudly call yourself a YogiGypsy then you’re all about the experience. You aren’t here to just sit on the sidelines and watch but you want to be a part of the movement. Your ego wants you to play it safe but your soul is burning for you to take that chance. Failure is not about proving that it was bad or wrong, but about showing you your limitations and giving you a new place to start.
"Find your passion and follow it. The only way to do well is to do things from the heart, then the money will come. I would tell people not to be afraid to be yourself--you have to have a voice, even if you think people don't like what you have to say. Stay with it, it's the only thing that will make you heard." – Francis Mallmann
