Living Everyday With Passion And Purpose

Living Everyday With Passion And Purpose

I recently read a blog post by my fave Necole Kane who recommended Matthew Kelly’s – The Rhythm of Life. I’m really struggling with creating a plan for my life at the moment and I’ve invested in quite a few books lately. This was only £4.99 via Kindle so I thought why not!

Before the end of the first chapter Matthew urges the reader to put the book down, asks ‘what do you want from life?’ and tells you to take 5 moments or hours to really think about it and write it down.

Most people can tell you exactly what they don’t want, but very few have the same clarity about what they do want.

You’re told that there are no right or wrong answers, to write quickly without too much thought and no editing. It might sound weird but I felt something in my heart whilst writing like I was really tapping into what my heart desires most.

I started a new notebook, wrote the date and the following.


I WANT…
To be clear and intentional with my life and the things I am about to write

Be assured, if you don’t know where you are going, you are lost.

To work within media – content creation, branding or both

I’ve always loved and been good at branding and I find content creation fun, I think a role that combines them both would be my dream job – If I really do have to adult.

To help and inspire people to live their best lives

It’s an amazing feeling knowing that the small steps I’ve taken on my journey so far have inspired people, I want to continue helping people realise that they are the authors of their lives.

Have we become more interested in spectator sports and television sitcoms than in our own future?

To engage in public speaking

Man, I envy those with enough confidence to stand in front of a crowd of people they may or may not know and speak from their heart.

To become a brand and then a global brand

Whether you are sixteen or sixty, the rest of your life is ahead of you. You cannot change one moment of your past, but you can change your whole future. Now is your time.

To fall in love and have that person love me and respect me the same

I’ve lived through the pain of unrequited love and although it could happen again, that’s not what I want for my heart or sanity.

Someone who truly knows and honours my worth

When you are wondering if he really is the one for you, consider this one idea: You deserve to be cherished. Cherished! Not just loved. Cherished.

To never forget who I am and that I am enough

It’s been a long journey but I’m here, whole and unapologetically myself. I never want to lose what I worked so hard to achieve. There was a point not too long ago when I honestly couldn’t remember what being happy and carefree felt like and that was one of the most painful things ever.

To remain strong but always remember its ok to feel

Women wander the earth marveling at the highest mountains, the deepest oceans, the whitest sands, the most exotic islands, the most intriguing birds of the air and fish of the sea— and all the time never stop to marvel at themselves and realize their infinite potential as human beings.

To travel more

Travel opens our minds to different cultures, philosophies, and worldviews. Travel opens our hearts to the people of foreign lands and their different traditions and creeds. Travel dissolves the stains of prejudice that infect our hearts and societies.


Even though these are ‘wants’ and I have no set plan of how to achieve them – yet, I feel like I’m on the right path.

Now, to figure out how to tick these bad boys off, one. at. a. time.

And it’s so true!!! Now that you’ve written your goals down, you’re already closer to making them a reality. And as a careers adviser, I actually encourage young people to do different jobs. It’s not conventional advice, and if you want a “traditional career”, I wouldn’t necessarily recommend it, however I think it’s utterly ridiculous that we’re expected to know at 16, 18 or even 21 exactly what we want to do when we’ve hardly tried anything and most of us have no idea what the world has to offer! I mean it’s a lot better now with the internet, but theory is still not hands on experience and doesn’t give you an actual insight into whether or not you may or may not enjoy the role or be suited to it – or where you can thrive, not just get by and climb the same ladder as everyone else. As long as you are consciously aware of the skills you are learning and build on them, I think you can still be “successful” – as long as of course you define what success actually means for you. It’s a journey and a rollercoaster and one that ultimately we have to navigate from within. Good luck with all your goals! 🙂
