Lead With What You Love
It’s nice to switch things up on occasion, and I’m practicing that here today.
Instead of writing first and then finding a photo to accompany the article, I’m starting with the photo.
It feels like another way to let Fun lead!
In fact, that’s why I’m so glad my marketing guy hasn’t gotten much done this summer. He’s been busy skydiving, which is a major love in his life.
(He’s in Florida right now celebrating his 18 year old niece’s birthday by taking her on her first skydive!)
We deliberate creators know how important it is to make plenty of room for our passions and interests in life. That’s who I want investing in my business! A guy who’s fully engaging what he loves.
It’s why I regularly encourage my sweetie here at home to get his golf time in. Competitive golf is what he loves and does almost every day, weather permitting. (And he’s not afraid to get on the course in blazing heat or signs of snow, so his season is long.)
I know the more he does what he loves, the better boyfriend he is.
Because it’s important to lead with joy; to go with what’s fun; follow the laughs; and indulge our inner child.
It’s not just a rewarding way to live in and of itself, but it also creates powerful vibrational alignment lining us up with what we’ve been wanting.
So when I lead with the fun (and for me, different is fun), and look for the photo that inspires the words, this “shaft of light in the storm” picture got my attention.
It reminds me how easy it is for us to see things differently.
One might see it as tumultuous and stormy; another as hope and divinity. Like half empty vs. half full, right?
Like the difference between these two dogs tonight …
… after finishing his steak treat for dinner, Koda is over here rolling on his back with the kind of satisfaction that makes him look like he’s died and gone to heaven.
While Joe, on the other hand, is sniffing around anxiously to see if he missed some. No matter how much he eats or how good the meal, Joe is always looking for more.
In fact, Russ suggested I not waste any steak on Joe since he doesn’t taste it anyway. “Toss him a fry and he won’t know the difference.”
I have to admit he might be right.
Which makes me wonder, where do I gobble down the goods without properly noticing or appreciating them? When do I look for more instead of being full with what already is?
I want to be the one who draws out the enjoyment and maximizes the pleasure, quick to laugh for any reason, and the last one out of the pool … but I do see lots of Joe in me, with a gift for spotting the problem in the midst of the pleasure and a quick eye for how things could be better.
So, if there’s a point to this post, it’s that there doesn’t always need to be a point, other than having fun.
Do what you love for fun’s sake; not because it’s where the money is. Do it because it appeals, not because it makes sense or is what you’re supposed to do.
Listen to your heart, don’t take it too seriously, and be sure to enjoy your steak. 😉
