Passion & Purpose. To me that is what life is all about. Being passionate about what I do, discovering my purpose and passionately living my life to make a difference seemed to be the driving force for most of my life. So now, with the death of my best friend Patty Dresser this week, I have an entirely heartfelt and raw perspective on this 52 days to create a shift...
What if we don't have 52 days? What if you knew that tomorrow was your very last day on this earth? What if you had the opportunity to wake up and LIVE your purpose tomorrow - what would you do?
Patty and I have talked several times a week every week for years. I spoke with Patty the night before she died. We didn't know this would be the last time we spoke. Of course, I remember almost every detail of this conversation. Something that is really haunting me about what was to be our final conversation I will share with you...
I excitedly shared with Patty that I had just started the process to file for a provisional patent for an idea that I have had for a long time. She is one of very few people whom I had shared this entire process with and, of course she was as excited as I am!! She said "you know, after you launch your idea, I have an idea too that we can work on together." I asked if she wanted to talk about it now and she said she was still processing it but would tell me after I did mine... Oh my God. The world has missed out on something GREAT!
We simply do not know what tomorrow will bring. Why do we wait? What are we waiting for? What is holding us back from realizing our dreams and passions and purpose for living? Fear? Excuses? Not truly knowing what our passion or purpose is?
The first 7 pages in my book I talk about living your dream. Following your heart's desires to what you truly love to do, your passion. Find something you want so badly that you wake up in the morning thinking about it - your dream is what drives you - fuel for your soul!
I have been in the car driving all day on my way to Indiana for Patty's memorial service on Tuesday. I have had hours and hours of time to think about life. My life, Patty's life, all the people I love.... I do have BIG dreams that I have been keeping on hold. Waiting for the right time, waiting for the money, waiting....
So, now I'm asking myself and you - if time and money were not an issue - what would you do? No more excuses for me. Money is a commodity I will not use lack of it as an excuse to wait any longer and time is not on my side it is moving on with or without me! My passion is driving me now !
Watch out world - something GREAT is on its way!!!
