the moment light begins

I talk a lot about "finding your purpose" and going after it. In essence making the decision to "love what you do and do what you love". I realize this is a process and not something that can be simplified.

An old co-worker of mine though epitomizes the dream of being able to do this. I will probably over simplify his journey but he decided  to go after his dream of being a photographer. He packed up and moved from California to New York City. He has now traveled around the world taking some of the most amazing pictures I have ever seen.

We can look at another person's journey and assume that it was easy for them. We act as if they have less hurdles than we do, more time than we do or special circumstances that makes things harder for us than other people. The truth of the matter is we all have the opportunity to walk towards our purpose. We each have to go through our own hurdles and bumps in the road but it is still something we can all do. The biggest obstacle in our way is deciding for ourselves that we are worth it. Once yo make that decision here are a few things you will need to remember.

it will not always be easy

you will be told no, you can't or you shouldn't

it will be fun

you will learn things about yourself you never knew

you will be happy you did it

I am not going to say much more than that today. It's Friday, it's nice outside and this is a lot to think about in and of itself. What I will leave you with is a video that the friend I was talking about directed. It's a short couple of minutes but watch it, spend the weekend thinking about how you could go on your own journey towards purpose.

Hope you all have an amazing weekend dreaming of the possibilities and start seeing some light of your own.
