Well, it has been a while since I have posted. Ok, more like a year, but I think I have this new format figured out.
Why Special Olympics you ask? Simple. Working with the athletes and the organization aligns my soul's compass with its North Star...and isn't that what everybody is searching for in life?
All too often, we run around over scheduling ourselves, jetting from point A to B, or "pinning" what we love. Hello, my name is Shelley, and I am a Pinner of the wee hours. Sorry, I digressed. My point is, find the passion deep in your soul. The kind of passion which lights your heart on fire. Passion so intense, you are a force to be reckoned with on numerous levels! Stop looking for your purpose in life if there is not passion behind what you are doing.
I am talking about the type of passion which evokes a feeling of wonder. The kind of passion when you look up at the evening sky and think, I am just like one of those stars. I am the one shining brightly amongst billions. When we are true to our authentic self and listen to our soul, it will lead us to our North Star. Purpose in life is not always easy to define, but I promise you, when you are aware what your soul is saying, your purpose will unfold before your eyes. May you find joy in the little miracles every day, but more importantly, may you find your North Star and shine brightly amongst the billions.
