Dear Passionate Creatives,
Prior to launching Mediterranean Wanderer, I thought things in my life were as good as they were going to get. That I had reached the peak of my experiencesin life so to speak. I lived a comfortable lifestyle, had settled into a daily routine, was in a secure relationship and had all the stability I could wish for. I didn’t have to worry about a thing. But on the other hand, a big chunk of the puzzle was missing.
I’d switched off the chargein my life. I’d completely disconnected from that feeling that ignites you when you are sparked and inspired in life, that feeling that propels you forward a million miles an hour and has you jumping from one idea to the next because your mind can’t keep up, that excitement that thrills you with the knowledge that anything’s possible and that pulse of energy that motivates you to step outside your comfort zone and launch…I’d disconnected from my passion – my life force and when you give that up, it’s as though a big part of who you are is dead.
I would get glimpses of that spark from time-to-time and each time I did, those glimpses were a reminder of what I was holding on to and just how numb my life had become…
Ever since I made the decision to let go of my old life, step outside my comfort zone and pursue my passion, my measure of whether or not I am on track is always following my internal charge.Leaving my old life and all its comfort and security was one of the hardest things I have ever done. What I thought was my biggest mistake turned out to be one of my greatest gifts, it shot me back to life.
I mentioned to someone recently about what this word chargemeant to me and the impact it has had on my life.
There is a switch that is activated when you are doing what you love. It shifts your perspective and makes the colours of the world appear a million times brighter.
That charge once ignited, has a ripple effect on all areas of your life. From empowering your voice, to the confidence in your stride as you walk, from the quality of the words you communicate, to your overflowing creative wellspring, from the relationships with the people around you, to your capacity to be fully awake to life. That charge is like a reference point, constantly reminding us of what we can inspire within ourselves when we are operating from our true potential and how dormant our lives are when we are living without it.
When we are awake to life through following the pulse of our internal charge, we are completely Unstoppable. Once activated, your old ways of being are something you can never go back to ever again.
I hope you are always being driven by your internal charge…
Happy travels, Paula x
