23-014 Purpose #7

Continuing with Principle #2 from Jack Canfield’s “The Success Principles” entitled “Be clear why you are here”, I set the intention to receive insight into what makes me feel enthusiastic? What excites me? What makes my heart sing?

I get excited about trying new things that interest me…especially creatively. Thanks to social media, I see so many examples of creatives demonstrating new-to-me techniques and media. It makes me want to try them as well, or at least some variation of them.

Today I felt inspired to paint this week’s MotW on a bigger-than-what-I-usually-paint-on stone. Thankfully, I’m so used to the design, that it was relatively to draw it out. Then I painted it using posca paint pens. So much fun.

When thinking about why I am here, I learning that it’s mostly about being creative, having fun, and sharing what I do with others…and hopefully inspiring others to have fun and play with being creative (which is way beyond just arts and crafts…we can be creative in all areas of our lives).

So how about you? What do you get excited about? What do you feel enthusiastic about doing? What makes your heart sing? Do that. That’s your purpose.

“Enthusiasm is excitement
with inspiration, motivation,
and a pinch of creativity.”

— Bo Bennett

An Invitation

I invite you to color along with me this year as part of what I’m calling “The Year of Self-Exploration and Expansion” with all of my “Mandalas of the ___” (day, weekmonthyear). If you’re interested in more of a self-exploration approach to coloring, check out my “Coloring Mandalas as Meditation”. You can download this mandala at MandalaoftheWeek.com.
