Just ONE word...

Wednesday, July 10, 2019

What is it that makes your heart beat with enthousiasm?

What excites you? What really moves you? What activities give you energy?
And why?

Stephen Covey suggested to live life backwards: write down what you want people to say about you in a eulogy.
What is truly important to you? What is your goal in life?
Ask: if I can add ONE valuable thing to this world - what is it?

Editing to add: I am serious! I'd like to hear your answers! I get a lot of comments that say 'nice blog' or 'keep sparking' but I had hoped to see what YOUR answers is to the questions. I added my own answer in a comment.

    I've considered this question for a few days, and loving is the word. A loving Mom, wife, saughter, friend.

    Ahh, I love that you really want to know (and I really like your answer as well).

    I've been really done with the "what do you do" as an identifier and summation of human beings, so instead, I've started asking people "what is your passion?" This connects to the soul of a person and is a much likelier conversation expander than having to respond to "I'm a systems administrator."

    What excites me is music, singing and media (especially radio) and creating radio. What moves me and feeds my passion is connecting those things to the causes and organizations that are working to reduce suffering -whether it's children in cages or animals suffering horribly in factory farms. When I can use the skills and talents I have to help promote those effecting change - and reducing suffering - I am filled with hope and feel that I have a purpose.

    Hugs and happy weekend!

    I have not commented because I am still trying to think of how to answer! Definitely harder to answer than one would think.

    My own answer would be: being emotionally present to others.
