It seems to be a trend for me that I forget my blog exists.  Lately I have been working on updating it, and have used the excuse of "I haven't figured out the links at the top of the page" for why I am not writing.  So, here I am!  Stepping past my excuses, broken links and all, and writing what's on my mind (and yes, I will eventually get those links figured out). 

I digress ...

More than two years ago, this saying danced its way across my computer screen and took my breath away.

Every single piece of this phrase excites me!  The moment that I first read it, I claimed this as my own - I was going to be fearless.  I wanted to figure out what it was that I was most passionate about and to pursue it with fervor. 

The more time I spent trying to figure out what it is that sets my soul on fire, the more bummed I became.  I truly convinced myself that I was passionate about nothing.  I didn't have any idea in mind as to what it was that I would want to pursue.  I didn't know if I was searching for a career that made me feel this way, or if it were a volunteer opportunity, or if it should be my family, or ....

I drove myself crazy trying to figure it out!

Thankfully, I was able to let it go and stopped giving it any thought.  I knew I would figure out what my passion was, and I knew (like most things in life) I had to stop trying to control the outcome to really understand what it was.

Fast forward more than a year later and I've come to realize that I am discovering those passions and starting to pursue them.  Health and fitness is definitely one of those avenues, and I'm excited to follow this new journey and see what direction it takes me.  Helping people is another passion.  Church/my relationship with God yet another.  Personal development makes the list as well.

There are so many things that excite me about life, and I cannot express my thankfulness for the passion within me that chooses to live each day with vivacity!  I do my best to set a goal for every day, even if it's something incredibly small like making my bed, I feel so accomplished when my goals are achieved.

I challenge you to go out and find what you are passionate about and start pursuing it, little by little, day by day. 

Life is such a gift and I am grateful to be living such a blessed and amazing adventure!
