What’s important to you? What are your passions? What is your purpose?
The Love Warrior Community’s’ January 2012 Challenge was to spend 10 minutes writing about Self-Love each day.
For the month of February we asked ourselves “What would love do?” It was our daily guiding principle for that month.
For March our spotlight will be on our passions.
When you are no longer obsessed with what you’ve eaten, how much you’ve eaten, when you will eat again, how much you weigh, how many calories you had, how much exercise you did or didn’t do, what your body looks like, how much fat you have on your body, how much cellulite you have……….
You then have the mental capacity to focus on the passions in your life! You are now able to make room for your dreams, and create the life you were meant to live, full of juice, joy, fun, passion and purpose!
What a gift it is to have a brain free from body and food obsessions. The joy of waking up in the morning and looking forward to what lies ahead is what recovery offers. This is our goal for the month of March.
Write about what is important to you. What excites you? Have you discovered your purpose in this life?
If you are unclear, reading other Love Warrior’s posts can offer inspiration. You can use the “tool” of writing to clarify and discover what your dreams, passions and desires are. Allow yourself to dream outside of the box. Give yourself permission to write about your daydreams whether you believe they are within your reach or not. Begin, risk to dare to dream. This is your life, you get to choose what you want to invite into it. Dream BIG! If you reach for the Milky Way but only reach the moon, you have succeeded in reaching the moon!
A note to all Love Warriors: Each month there is a new prompt. Give yourself permission to continue with January, February or March’s focus. If you have something else in the realm of self-love that doesn’t seem to fit, submit it anyway. This is your community. Check out the guidelines.
I’m eager to read about your hopes, dreams, and passions!
