Here’s a funny thing: I suddenly feel like I have all the time in the world.
Hmmm. How’d that happen?
Quite simply: I found my passion. (And it was right under my nose all the time.)
Ever since getting really clear about what it means to be a Soul Proprietor — and returning to my original intention with the way I present myself to the world — I’ve been on fire with so many new ideas it’s been all I can do to get them all written down as I think of them.
But the greatest benefit of all has been that it seems like I have all the time in the world to do all the things I want to do with my work AND have time for play and fun as I journey around in my RV.
Before, you’d hear me complaining all the time about never having enough time. Now, it seems, even the mundane tasks that I dreaded the most seem to have a lightness about them, and I’m accomplishing a lot more with a lot more ease.
So, if you’re finding that you’re forcing yourself to do things that seem really difficult and if you hear yourself saying “I don’t have enough time” frequently — just like I was doing for so long — perhaps it’s because you’re trying to operate your business — or your life — in a manner that runs counter to your values and your passion.
Who knows for what reason? Perhaps it’s been to please someone else or because you’ve heard that you have to do things a certain way to be successful. It really doesn’t matter why.
I believe that so much of our grief in life comes from not being true to ourselves and maybe now is the time to let your authentic-self shine.
For me, it has sure been a lot more exciting lately to get out of bed each day and get to work; although it seems hardly fair or accurate to call what I do “work” because I’m having so much fun.
Find out what really revs your motor (or as my mom would say, “whatever flips your skirt”) and start concentrating on that. You might find that you too, suddenly, have all the time in the world for accomplishing all that you want to do.
