It has been said that we are born with our work in our hearts. And, the way we uncover that work is to follow what makes our heart "sing with joy."
How do we do that when we live in such a busy and noisy world?
Here is a story to illustrate my point. As I was making a casual conversation with a man today~ he was patiently waiting for his wife to come out of her yoga class~ I asked him this question. " What do you do....." and he looked up at me as he waited for the rest of the question.
"What do you do... for JOY?" Whoa! His face told all. Giving him a moment to gather himself, and to recover from this question that seem to strike him deep in his soul...his answer came.... "not much."
It was clear that he was taken aback at the depth he felt; and he was unprepared for it. As I gave him a few moments to recover, he came to that point of acceptance. And, in that same moment of acceptance, you could see that his determination kicked in and he was willing to recognize the imbalance in his own life. This is the moment that for some, it is a line in the sand. The one moment that brings them to the place of being willing to make a change. This is the point that I love to help people to see ~ and then provide the support they need to move on.
Do you know what it feels like to help someone make a major change in their life? To help them shift into a different mindset where they can actually learn to love and appreciate themselves? My life's work is not work at all, it is though I am the space holder for another as they explore their own inner workings. It is deep and profound and one I don't take lightly. Sometimes, I can be a tough "call it like I see it" and sometimes, I'm right there with the box of tissues.
