“Great dancers aren’t great because of their technique; they are great because of their passion.” ~ Judith Jamison, dancer, choreographer
I’ve been reading books about business lately. One thing that comes out loud and clear is that having a passion for what you’re doing is the most important element for success in any endeavor … dancing, teaching, selling, managing … anything you desire.
I have a passion to help women survive midlife divorce and to help them understand that an amazing new life is possible for them. A glorious life. A fun life. A life of adventure and finding their own passions. What I saw as a midlife catastrophe has actually catapulted me to new dreams and new relationships and new, exciting goals. I loved my old life, but now I have a new passion and I am as full of energy and power and joy as I’ve ever been.
I want to tell other women who are struggling through a divorce at midlife that finding fresh purpose and fulfillment is possible for them, too. Discover your passion! Create your own passionate life! Get some resources to figure out what you really want to do with the rest of your life and then go after it with everything that’s in you. Invest the money. Do the work. Cry the tears. Pray the prayers. Be passionate! Lose yourself in it!
When you discover what you really want the rest of your life to be, put your whole heart into it. You’ll find out that you don’t have enough hours in the day to do every exciting thing you want to do. Spend some time today thinking about your personal passion. Ask God to help you figure that out. Then start step by step living it with everything you’ve got!
“Jesus said, ‘Love the Lord your God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence,’ This is the most important, the first on any list.’” ~ Matthew 22:37-38 (The Message)
