Mastery of Self Expression workshop remind me of what I am passionate about.
After being disconnected from everything I "thought" was right in my life, my true passions are shining through. I've reaffirmed my love for movies and for writing this blog. And I love exciting people about social media. I've even realized how much I love making short video movies for social media.
All these passions revolve around a desire to make heartfelt connections with people and help them connect with others. And as I wrote in the previous blog tip#354 this all feels part of the legacy I want to leave behind on the planet.
(500) Days of Summer 2009
At the beginning of the movie (500) Days of Summer the narrator says "This is not a love story". This helps shake up your mindset because one of the key subplots revolves around rediscovering your passion.
In the story Tom (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is devastated after his girlfriend Summer (Zooey Deschanel) breaks up with him. In a disconnected state of mind he quits his unfulfilling job and slowly begins to explore his buried passion for architecture.
His shattered mindset made room for his love of buildings to shine through and soon he goes on job searches in the field he truly desired. He looks and feels better and the ending of the movie will put a big smile on your face!
Tom was a big mirror for me. He was a reminder that out of my recent struggles I will be even more aligned with my passions and purpose.
Opportunity for Renewal
So if you are experiencing the pain of life or career changes know that there is a message within this uncomfortable situation. This is your opportunity for renewal. You get to reboot your life purpose or direction to be more fulfilling and passionate. You get to re-energize yourself.
Remember there is always a silver lining under any dark cloud you find yourself under. That silver lining will lead you back to your true passions.
