It has been a WHILE since I posted something here. Life gets busy and I had nothing interesting to say…until today that is 😉 I decided to open up my little blog site today and there was a notification waiting for me when I logged on. The notification said “happy one year anniversary”. Isn’t that so crazy?? Of all of the days that I could have gotten a whim to login to this blog, and it was the one year anniversary of me creating this blog! The crazy thing is I opened it up because I finally had something to write about and I wanted to get my thoughts formed into words before I lost my inspiration. Life works in magical ways my people. So now on to what I wanted to share with you all.
I started this blog so that I could share what I know about sports, exercise, health/wellness, and things of that nature with whomever was willing to read these posts. Part of what pushed me to do that was my pursuit of “seeking what sets my soul on fire“. At first I didn’t really know how to quantify or qualify what would determine if I have found what “sets my soul on fire”, and to be honest this is something that ‘adults’ still say they are trying to do. But I think I have a good idea of how to make this determination. I didn’t come to this realization until fairly recently. I started my last semester of undergrad (*sniffle*) about a month ago and my classes are super cool. I can honestly say I wake up everyday excited to go to class (even when my alarm goes off for that 8am). I was thinking about that this weekend as I sat and studied away and so far this semester doesn’t feel like a chore or something I need to get through. Maybe that is my sentimental, not-ready-to-let-go-and-graduate-self talking, but I truly believe that feeling is how you can know you are doing something that “sets your soul on fire”. If you can find something that makes you want to get up every morning and crush life then hold on to that thing, hold it dear, because that thing is your passion, the fire that ignites your ultimate self.
And if you read that and thought to yourself that you have not felt that or do not feel that about something you are currently investing a majority of your time into, that is okay. It is never too late to find your passion and go after it. Maybe take up journaling and start answering introspective questions, write down little things that make you smile everyday, watch random documentaries, look up hobbies or classes you can get involved in, join a gym, meet new people, go out to eat or sit at a coffee shop by yourself, just do something that places you outside that comfort zone you are currently living in. When you push out of that comfort zone you will get to learn a lot about yourself and you may even discover a world you never knew existed. Do what you need to do for you and find whatever it is that “sets your soul on fire”
Best of luck to you all in your pursuit of setting your soul on fire and keep chasing that feeling to those of you who have found that “match”. You people are amazing, thank you for reading and have a marvelous week.
