It’s 7:22am and I’m on my third cup of coffee (I’ve switched over to decaf at this point)….and I feel alive with energy. Today people will be flying in from across the country to gather at Chatauqua for our second SUBSTANCE workshop of the year. I feel energized by their energy alone – and am reminded yet again that often times your passion and life is fueled by others with this amazing energy. So in a very quick post this morning I just wanted to share a snippet of something we’ll read to the group this weekend….it’s a snippet of a letter to ourselves we wrote this year.
This excerpt is talking about finding passion….something we believe is necessary in whatever you choose to do with life.
“Rest…rest until that fire in your belly can do nothing but ignite great things. You’ll feel it coming. You’ll feel that energy that makes you giggle cry and makes you your unstoppable you. And if you think the fire will never come – then change the way you fuel are fueling your fire. GET. OUT. THERE. Change your art. Change your goal. Change your mission. And then – fuel your new fire. Fuel it with energetic people. “Yes” people. Celebrate the small successes along the way. And fuel it with passion. A passion to be the best you can be. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. And then…burn baby burn. Make bonfires.”
