Lesson #7: Move to Doing (Only?) What You Love to Do.
I was reading about Brenda Ueland, the great writing teacher, this morning (If you haven’t read her If you Want To Write: A Book About Art, Indpendence and Spirit, I commend it to you).
Ueland is said to have lived by two rules: to always tell the truth and to never do anything she didn’t want to do.
A woman after my own heart.
Except that it seems Ueland lived that way her whole life long. It took me a long time to learn that knowingly, peacefully, authentically doing what you love is the best way of loving others too.
I love writing. I love reading. I love teaching. I love taking pictures. I love long walks, light jogs and swimming in the sea. I love meditating, yoga and, most recently, reiki. I love jazz dance, cardio salsa and I reckon I’m going to love tango, which I start tomorrow. I love eating good vegetarian food, especially with family and friends. I love…
Well, on it goes. On…and on. There is a lot to do in this world and so much that can be done, in even one day.
So what is it that you love?
And how are you going to shape your life so that, more and more, that’s what you find yourself doing?
