There’s nothing

that makes me happier than to see people discover what they were meant to do and watching them actually DO it. To watch such a peace overcome them and see them light up from the inside makes me so incredibly happy because I really feel like that is what this world needs more of: people who BELIEVE in their purpose and people who are OVERFLOWING WITH PASSION.

Speaking from personal experience, I know that getting to that point is sometimes scary. There may be days where we are sure about where our lives are going and what we are meant to do and then there are other days where the doubt overcasts the sun and we begin asking ourselves questions like “can I really make a living off of this?”, “what if I fail?” or “can I even really DO this?” To that I say: Yes. Yes you can.

If you have a passion…something that is literally burning inside of you…you wake up every morning and it’s the first thing you think about…CHASE IT. Pursue it fiercely and fearlessly.  I firmly believe God created each and every one of us to be unique. He has given us all amazing spiritual gifts and incredible talents…gifts and passions that the world is just waiting for us to share. If you are sitting here reading this, I want you to know that you have a gift that I need. There is a passion inside of you that is destined to make an incredible impact on this world. I want to tell you that SO many lives are waiting to be enriched because of you. YES…YOU. In Him, you have the freedom to boldly live the life He wants for you and I really believe that it’s not until we all begin to really live out our purpose that we begin to REALLY live. And believe me…I don’t want you to just exist. I want you to LIVE!

As far as I’m concerned, it doesn’t matter if you’re 18, 28 or 58, it is NEVER too late to start walking in your purpose. Becoming who you are meant to be means you are surrendering yourself to Him and cooperating with His intention for your life and it doesn’t matter where you are right now…you can surrender to His will for your life right now and experience that breath of fresh air you’ve been so desperately gasping for.

So what are you waiting on? Get up. Get out there and work those passions!

No excuses…the world is waiting on you.
