I sort of go back and forth between listening to music and listening to books on CD in my car, it just depends on my mood and how long I’ll be in the car. I was heading over last week to get a massage and dinner with two of girlfriends (a surprise birthday outing), so I popped in a CD lecture by Dr. Wayne Dyer and Marrianne Williamson. It’s a 4 CD set, the first two CD’s are them speaking individually, then the last two they take questions from the audience (I need to go to one of those events). I’m always amazed at how I can listen to something multiple times, yet something different will resonate with me each time.

As I was listening to Wayne (yeah, we’re on a first name basis), I heard something that almost brought tears to my eyes ( in a good way…I know, I’m a bit of a mush). He was talking about the morning, afternoon and evening of your life ( a theory I believe he said was Carl Jung’s) and that for most people, the afternoon of your life is in your 30’s, although that’s not the case for everyone. What got me so emotional though was when he said that you go from a state of ‘doing’ to a state of ‘being’, and that when you find your passion, it really just takes a hold of you. As I was driving, I realized that this is exactly where I’m at in my life right now. I’ve explored so many different things in my life, but nothing has ever taken a hold of me the way this business has. Not only am I getting to do something I love, but the most amazing people keep showing up in my life. I couldn’t stop this thing even if I tried (not that I want to). And what really inspires me is simply the way I feel when I’m a part of it. I haven’t lost site of the big picture- but it’s just not that important. I am so grateful for where I’m at that I’m just enjoying the ‘being’ of it all. The doing gets done without me having to think about it.

I may be being a bit ambiguous here, but the feeling that comes when your passion takes a hold of you is like nothing I’ve ever experience before. Hindsight is 20/20- but I can definitely say it’s been worth the wait.
