Weekend Be-Happier Tip #19 Follow Your Heart


Share this :   | | | |

  What motivates you?

  Stress is a motivator, but it can push you to achieve greatness or push you to feel overwhelmed and confused.

 When you follow your heart in life, you also follow your dreams!

This weekend, think about the dreams you’ve set aside because they weren’t “practical” — and see what you can do to resuscitate them!  Our dreams are the inner yearnings of our soul to be fully ourselves. When you deny those dreams and march to the drummer of “I’ll do that later after I’m a success” you will actually have a hollow success (if you do succeed commercially or financially in an endeavor that doesn’t really interest you).

Take time to recall who you really are — are you a writer? an artist? a dreamer? a visionary? What special gifts inherent in each creative effort can you offer to the world? The world needs your unique message!

Many people who have put aside their dream of writing have found an amazing new outlet on the internet with blogging!  Some people blog about food, others about their companion animals, others about their interests in the arts. Many people have blogs in which they share business tips to help you navigate the complex world of commerce and internet marketing.

What’s your niche? Are you talking about the things that make you smile and feel good inside?

your happiness guru,

Evelyn

PS I just submitted a screenplay to a producer who asked to see it — I particularly love this heartfelt story — I’ll keep the title and details under wraps for now — because in it, a young woman who has lost most of her family to sickness and war, falls in love and is willing to go to any lengths to make it possible, when she could have cried that she’s had too much pain already and doesn’t want to lose anyone else. Wish me luck with the producer! And ask yourself this weekend: Are you willing to go to any lengths to attain the important things you want?

You are right. Blogging has helped many would-be writers come out of the closet! It's wonderful :) #blog30
