“My family all worked in factories. It`s a factory town. So, I didn`t have dreams of Hollywood. I just loved to sing.” – Tamia
Do you do what you love? You might not be able to do for a living, but you need to make time to do the things you love in order to take care of your soul. Whether it is singing or dancing salsa, this special type of “me time” is essential to your well being. An equally important question is: Do you know what you love? From personal experience, I know what it is like to go through many years not knowing what is of critical importance to me. It is easy to get caught up in the pleasures of family and friends, and it feels wonderful to be part of a loving community. But there are some things that are meaningful to one inherently — and it is important to find out what those things are, even if you have to go through a lengthy process of trial and error. So discover what you love. Know what activities, passions and environments automatically make you feel good. And do everything you can to participate in them regularly. Just as Tamia “just loved to sing,” that’s the only justification you need for focusing as much as you can on what is important to you.
Take the time to shine and enjoy what makes your soul soar!
