    The Things We (Mommies and Creatives) Do For Purpose + Passion

     



    There is this thing we do sometimes.

    And by we, I mean my stay-at-home and/or work-at-home-mom friends and I.

    We were, during the BK days (BK = Before Kids,) professional somethings or anothers dominating the field of this or that, looking completely fabulous while doing it.

    With our manicured nails, flawlessly layered hair (or sharp bob if you’re like me,) brand new pencil skirts and designer pursues, we felt totally connected to who we really were, until someone mentioned the word purpose…  In an attempt to find greater purpose, we lost ourselves. 

    By we, I also mean my side-hustling-creative friends and I.

     We were aspiring somethings or anothers, living our lives. We worked hard to keep up with our routines, balance (or harmonize... if you’re like me) our personal and professional lives, and keep up with our schedules of being promoted by _______ and married by _______.

    We were good… until someone mentioned the word passion. In an attempt to live a passionate life, we became artists, started blogs, launched handcrafting businesses, let our hair go natural (giving up that bob was hard for me...) and somehow forgot what we were supposed to be doing and why.

    Now that you know who I mean by we, let’s address what we do.

     

    Overthink it.

    Sometimes we overthink what purpose is and what passion feels like. 

    We get so overwhelmed with purpose (the word) and so obsessed with passion (the word,) that we stay in this long drawn-out period of, well, overwhelm and obsession.

    Hey stay-at-home and/or work-at-home-mom friends! I see you (I am you…) doing your thing.  Daily you give of yourself in a way that fills your entire family up. If THAT makes you happy, that is your purpose- your reason for being you. Forget everything and everyone else that makes you forget that YOU wanted to be with your family in a way that mattered to you. Stop comparing yourself to who you used to be. Stop think about what everyone else is doing.

    Listen mommy, YOU will forever go down in history as one of the greatest contributors on earth.

    You make other humans. THAT is purposeful.

    To all of my side-hustling-creative friends I pose this question: Do you love it?

    Whatever you are pursuing creatively, is your heart it in? Can you feel it? Is it apart of the pulse of your life?

    Okay, that was more than one question. But, these questions are important. You will make things happen when you do it for the love. Stop obsessing over passion (the word) and be lead by passion (the feeling.) People who are in pursuit of passion are in pursuit of being moved, fired up, and totally plugged in. Love does that.

    If you are going to be obsessed with anything, be obsessed with what you love.

     

    You know the things we do for purpose and passion- things like getting lost, compare, forget what we love, become overwhelmed + obsessed, and overthink??

    Stop doing that.

     

     

     

    Until next time, Love...

    The Love Your Life More Private Mastermind 2016


    Where do you want to be a year from now?

    Imagine it. The first week in December 2016... 
    What are you doing? Where are you doing it? Who are you doing it with?

    Can you see it? How does it look? How do you feel just thinking about it?

    Now, do me a favor. Think back to December 2014... Just a year ago,  what were you doing? Where were you doing it? Who were you doing it with?

    How do you feel, now? Are you things better or worst?

    Or... are you in the same exact space in life, in love, and in your career??

    How do you really feel about your life right now? Do you love it? Could you stand to love it even more?

    Now that I have you really thinking about your life, I'm going to offer you the opportunity to join me in:

    • getting intentional about living well 2016 
    • being accountable to what you want the most
    • setting goals, thriving in community, and stepping your entire life up
    • LOVING YOUR LIFE MORE!


    I really believe that those things will be the difference between where you are right now, and where you'll be this time next year.
    Maybe you did good this, accomplished some really good things, but just want to take things even further in 2016.

    This opportunity is for you too.


    This group will be dedicated to being fully committed to living a more meaningful life, by making things happen in the first 5 months of the year. From January 1st until May 1st, 2016, the Love Your Life More Private Mastermind will be setting the stage for a more meaningful year.

    mastermind group is simply a meeting of highly motivated people who share a common goal and are looking to encourage and help each other improve.

    Sounds good, right?

    This group isn't for everyone. I am only accepting aspiring women, with specific goals, who are interested in supporting others- as they make things happen in their own lives.   

    Sounds like you??

    Registration for the next session opens April, 2016.
