A Welcome Home Life
It’s possible I’m ruined for vacations forever.
Ever since I quit that j-o-b and started doing what I loved (talking about LOA with others), I just don’t feel the need to get away like I used to. Wednesday night I heard myself almost complaining to a client that I had to leave town. “I don’t need a break from this!” I lamented.
Yes, the white sandy Bahamas beaches were nice, the ocean was amazingly warm and blue, and I loved the accents of the new people I met, but … I sure like it here in my little Salt Lake City, Utah home, doing what I love most: connecting with and guiding other deliberate creators.
Which makes me think about all the clients who say that if only they had more time and money, they would travel.
Yeah, that’s what we think.
But after you get a reprieve from what it is you’re not loving in your current life, and you’ve had your fill of foreigners and hotel rooms, I suspect you’ll find something else calls you after that.
That call is our passion. It’s “our thing.” It’s what we came here for; what trips our trigger.
For some people, I’m sure that’s traveling. (Tim Ferriss is probably one of them.)
But for others, I think it’s hidden underneath the “escape” dream.
And that’s where the real juice is: discovering and living that passion in every day current life.
Think about what you would do if you left behind all your worries in present day life and travelled the world for three years straight. What would you want to do afterwards? What would call to you? How would you invest your time and energy after you’ve lived the stereotypical dream of world travel?
That’s where the action is.
That doesn’t mean we won’t take our sweeties out for anniversary trips and have a grand time visiting friends across the globe, but there’s lots to be said for injecting some passion in the life we’re living today.
Thank you for allowing me to live my passion. If it weren’t for you, this gig wouldn’t be nearly as fun! It sure is nice to be home sweet home. : )
