In this day of instant everything, so many are seeking a quick way to do, be and have it “now”. As an organization that helps women find their passions and live life on purpose, we’ve heard it all…Isn’t there a book I can read? Can I find it on Google? Don’t they have an assessment for that?
Your passions and your divine assignment for living aren’t something you can learn in a book or find in an internet search, although clues can be found there. Truly living “on purpose” is a process that requires commitment, self-reflection and determination. You might even say that when it comes to passion and purpose, living your passion is equally important to finding it. That adage, “it’s not just the destination, it’s the journey,” definitely applies.
You can’t wait for your passions to reveal themselves to you, or for your life purpose to knock on the door; it’s referred to “pursuing your passion” for a reason. You have to get out there and try new things, experience different adventures, meet new people, and become aware of new causes, for every aspect of your uniqueness to come together in just the right way. While this might sound complicated, it doesn’t have to be; with the right perspective, getting there is most of the fun!
It does take creativity though, and dedication. It’s much easier to let the day-to-day lead you through life. So, where does one find the inspiration to try new things on the journey to passionate, empowered and purposeful living?
The first place we recommend is your “bucket list”. Soulspring Groups’ members have several pages in their Soulspring Journal which are dedicated to creating a list of things they want to do before they die (101 to be exact). We’ve heard of women dedicating themselves to knocking one thing off their list every week! That’s a pretty aggressive goal, but imagine the thrill!
Another great source can be found on Soulspring Groups’ Facebook page. Each Friday on Facebook is Springboard Friday; a day where we post a simple activity to carry out (or plan for in the future). We’ve provided the planning tools, too! Followers of our page can download them via or Empowerment & Fun tab.
Past activities have included learning CPR. It’s a skill we all should know and there’s a sense of security that comes with being prepared for an emergency. Perhaps taking a CPR class could uncover a passion for emergency response?
We also suggested becoming more aware of the nighttime skies. Learning about the stars is not only fun and interesting; a focus skyward gives us a sense of the greatness around us. Perhaps being able to identify the constellations would inspire a passion for astrology, or spark a passion in your child for science and space?
Debating on where to go on your summer vacation? One recent Springboard Friday post suggested throwing a dart at a map and traveling to that destination. The map could be of your country or state, or even a local map that’s closer to home. Who knows what you might stumble upon on your adventure…a new company or business you didn’t know existed, a historical site, a remote piece of nature…Each could be a doorway to a new purpose or passion for your life.
It’s time to stop your search for the easy way to discover your passions and the quickest route to your life purpose. Instead put more attention on what is revealed to you along the way…Take some time to get lost and you might just find yourself. The lessons, excitement and connections you make on your journey through life will reveal your purpose in due time…that is, if you’re willing to get your hands dirty and start really living. You can get started right now by making a point to stop by Soulspring Groups’ page on Facebook this Friday for a new passion quest assignment you can get on the calendar for next weekend.
