Showing up to what we enjoy doing is easy when we feel inspired because in these moments time expands, we are more focussed and present and feel less constrained by time. money and responsibility.
When we feel depleted on a physical, emotional or mental level, inspiration can seem like an impossibility.
You resist showing up because it feels forced.
But here’s the thing: if you show up to what lights you up even and especially WHEN YOU DONT FEEL LIKE IT, the ACT of doing it WILL LIGHT YOU UP!
If you’re exhausted, it will give you MORE energy.
If you’re feeling flat, it will RAISE your mood.
If you’re feeling lost, it will RECONNECT you.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed, it will help you to SIMPLIFY things.
If you’re feeling uninspired, it will INSPIRE you!
Yes of course there are times when you show up and what your start creating/ writing / speaking just may not actually light you up in the moment or you may not be happy with the result but it is an essential of the overall process of creation and doing what lights you up.
You may not always feel the joy from what you create in those moment but it may actually uplift, inspire, motivate SOMEONE ELSE!
In this way it is actually YOUR DUTY TO SHOW-UP AND DO WHAT YOU LOVE.
So every day I choose to show up to what lights me up. Because I want to. Because it is my responsibility.
Every day I choose to TRUST that the outcome will be for my highest good and the benefit of all and that I am meant to pursue what lights me up regardless.
This is a choice.
A choice to give myself permission.
There is NO ONE or NO THING that can stop me. LOTS that COULD if I were to give into those reasons. But by taking ownership of what is rightfully mine; doing what I love, I am able to do what needs to be done to make it happen.
No more, no less!
I know that this can seem as though you are turning what you love into a J.O.B. who may feel counter-intuitive to the flow of inspiration but what actually what you are stating to yourself and the Universe is that you MEAN it. That you WANT it. That you are WILLING. That you are COMMITTED.
That you VALUE it.
Showing up regularly is worth it for those moments when inspiration, passion and purpose simply POURS OUT OF YOU. In those moments you know its true value. CLAIM IT!
YOU MUST VALUE WHAT LIGHTS YOU UP so that you ACTUALLY SHOW UP again and again.
Remind yourself of WHY and what CAN happen, then release the attachment to the outcome and see what happens.
Nothing is waste of time if it is to do with your dreams.
Life is happening RIGHT NOW.
If you’re reading this post then you’re NOT DEAD! Celebrate this! Duh!
GIVE yourself the gift of LIVING YOUR LIFE the WAY YOU WANT TO LIVE, DOING WHAT WHAT YOU LOVE, even for just 5 minutes a day.
