Every single one of you has got a spark, something unique about you that lights you up and makes you excited.
Sharing what that is can be really scary. Trust me, I get it. But it can also be really freeing (which is a lesson I keep learning over and over again).
Chances are most of you know what you want to do (or really don’t want to do) with your lives but are scared to admit it. Right? Trust me, I know what that’s like. I battle with this on a nearly daily basis sometimes.
I tell myself I don’t know what to do with my life, but deep down I do. I just want someone else to decide it for me so that I’m not at risk to be open and vulnerable in case (or when) something goes wrong.
Does that sound familiar to any of you?
I want to write. I want to express myself and help people. I want to connect people. Words and communication are so important to me, and I know that I want to use my voice to help others.
I pretend I don’t know what I want to do because I don’t know what my dream career would be. I know I love writing, and I have a very deep passion for that. I love blogging and being vulnerable on social media, especially Instagram.
Ideally I think I’d like to help coach others through self-love and body positivity issues so they don’t feel alone because I felt so alone for so many years of my life already. Typing and sharing that is really scary because I immediately think about it not working out and then being embarrassed that I brought it up at all.
Yeah, it might not work out. I might crash and burn and discover that I would actually hate coaching others.
Or, it could turn out to be the greatest thing I’ve ever done in my life.
As sucky as life can be sometimes, it’s too short to not at least try to follow your passion.
Whatever lights you up, whatever you really enjoy doing, go pursue it. Right now. It can be scary as hell to admit what you really want to do with your life, but if not now, when?
