Thoughtful Tuesdays : Finding Your Purpose

So yesterday I became lost in my paints down in the Spidey Cave. I was so focused on getting these paintings done for the upcoming art show Feb 18th, to fundraiser money for the Autumn House (a local transition house), that I completely forgot it was Thoughtful Tuesday! 

Yesterday/today's excerpt from the book, "Listening To Your Inner Voice" speaks volumes to me. I hope it will resonate with you as well.

The following is an exact excerpt from the book Listening To Your Inner Voice by Douglas Bloch. I in no way possess any ownership of the following. I am simply sharing the thoughts, expressions and words of an author who has inspired me.

Finding Your Purpose

Everyone has a dream. Everyone has a purpose or mission, something specific he is called to do. You are on this earth for a reason. Although you can temporarily hide from yourself, you can never lose your connection to your purpose. It is always with you, beckoning to be uncovered. You just need to listen and let it speak to you. 
When you do decide to follow your dream, be prepared for resistance. The old beliefs and messages from the past that say it cannot be done will come rushing to the surface. How will you respond to these voices of fear and doubt? Will you allow them to immobilize you? Or will you tell them who is in charge and move forward in spite of your fears?
Despite the objections if everyone around her, Augusta pursued her dream of becoming an Olympic athlete. At first her series of disappointing performances seemed to confirm the predictions of her family and friends. But then she won a race. The improvement continued until a number of first-place finishes gave her a spot on the Olympic team. 
          No matter what the obstacles,  choose to be true to your purpose
          and let it guide and direct your way. Your destiny is beckoning you.
          It is time to heed the call. (page 38)


         1. I am aligned with my higher purpose.
         2. I am in touch with my destiny. 
         3. I hear my inner voice and heed the call.
         4. I am living a life of purpose and passion. 
         5. I follow my dreams and make them a reality.
