Selected Life Lesson
In order to meet my passions, I must start saying, “no” to the things I am less passionate about.
-LaRi L’s Life Lesson from Kansas City, Missouri
Last week marked the return of two things to my life: speaking and running. This fall for me has been extremely busy and stressful, but I have to say, I am starting to re-take control of my life.
Last week I spoke at the Nonprofit Human Resources Conference and I’ll be up in Springfield, Massachusetts, in a few weeks presenting at a diversity workshop. I must say: It feels great! That is the power of knowing what you are passionate about. Once I realized that – understood the passion running through me – I made my life about that. Sadly, I lost it.
But it’s back. And so am I. Look out. Dreams are being created. Passions are flowing. What’s yours? What can happen by writing it down or telling your best friend about it? Imagine the possibilities …
I recently had a dream where I (along with my best friend, Asitha) signed up to run another marathon. I don’t spend a lot of time analyzing dreams but this one got me thinking and wondering why I had it. Does some part of my aching body want to run another marathon? Or perhaps I just miss running? Or maybe my mind is simply telling me to get back to doing something physical?
I posted this question on my Facebook page and I would love your thoughts as to what my next physical challenge should be. Which ever one gets the most votes, I’ll take on and document the progress here!
Onward and upward!
