Wash

Waiting, wanting, desiring what we don’t have, needing, but not ever moving- wasting, washing our souls away. We float with the daily grind of things and watch our lives pass us as we forget what happened yesterday. We forget how to discern between yesterday and the day before, because we are not living how we really want to live. If we were living with passion and purpose, we would remember it all. We’d have to, because it means the world to us, it is a part of who we are. Have you ever done something or gone somewhere or experienced something that made you realize, “This is it. This is what I want!” We lose that feeling when we return to our reality, going day by day living for a paycheck. We wash up on the shore only to return back to the ocean to wash up again and then maybe, luckily, someone will pick us up and change our lives. No one will ever pick you up except you. You have to move yourself away from the back and forth wash and move towards what you want.

Maybe you don’t know, but you can figure it out by looking closely at the times you felt something different.

These times are so few, that’s why we have to tap into understanding their impact more.

These are the times our soul feels on fire. We feel alive.

Why is it so rare though. I think we’re all on a mission to find our next Moment of Fire. Because these are the moments that make us feel a purpose, that we’re here doing something and doing something right to have felt that.

It’s the times that a light goes off when you realize something you’ve been working years to understand. How could it be so simple. It moves you forward. It wakes you up.

But how could you live that life? You have to make money. You have to support yourself and your family and you have to bring home a paycheck every other week. True, but you can also be smart about what you do with your time and first invest in deciding where you sit at this moment. Have you become complacent and accepted where you are or maybe you are down and depressed day by day. Then do something different. Begin thinking.

You can live your life always wanting more but doing nothing about it or you can live your life knowing what you want and set out to do whatever it takes to capture it and make it happen. Life is too short to sit at a desk all day doing things for everyone else. What about you? What do you want?

Begin today to listen to the little things that happen to you that makes you FEEL something. Those feelings and that reaction is your soul telling you it wants more. There’s something there. Begin there.
