Hello. It has been a while since I have wrote anything on this blog as I have been slightly distracted by life. I was writing my morning pages this morning when I got an inspiration to write an article to inspire others and myself.
In the last few months, I have been in a job. The work is in a sales orientated environment where there is pressure to perform and achieve targets. At times I feel stressed in this environment as I feel there is little opportunity to express who I am and be the person who I want to be. There have been many days when I have been leaving work feeling drained because my heart and my soul isn’t in the work that I am doing. I am doing this work as a means to be busy, pay the bills and to be out there doing something. I would love to be engaging in work, which makes a statement of who I am.
To be honest I have been struggling to listen to my heart because my head has been so busy with thoughts of what I should do with my life. At times I feel I am just going around in circles searching for the magic answer. I have been coming up with options like going away traveling for a while, doing a creative course like acting, music or photography, start my own business in something that I love, write a book or maybe just live like a hippie.
I feel that I am lucky in my life right now in that I have no commitments in regards to a mortgage, kids, a partner and I am not in debt. A lot of people have said me that the world is your oyster and that you are in an opportune time to do what you want to do and to do what you love to do…..
I suppose the question for me is what that is?
How can a person become clear or know what that is?
How can a person follow and trust their heart?
As always I would love to hear any feedback, suggestions or stories about your own journey…
