P is for Passion. Passion has the power to transform your life - to reveal your purpose, your reason for being your life's work. To find out what your passion is, ask yourself, " What would I do if money was no object ?" Paint ? Write ? Teach ? Dance ? The trick is to think big, then begin by taking small, steady steps towards your dream. Mark Twain said that "the secret of success is making your vocation your vacation."
Happiness is found deep within.
It comes from our soul - not from external things.
So look inside and feel the joy.
Soon those around you will feel it too.
Think really deeply about something.
Then don't think about it at all.
See what pops up.
Then, once you've had an idea, make it real.
A cake isn't a cake until it's cooked.
Imagine what's possible. Make it happen.
I bought a book sometime back in Sydney called The Alphabet of the Human Heart which is like a handbook for the happy and a bible for the broken hearted. One side of the book shows the A to Z of our weaknesses, fears and lows and to turn our lives around, all we need to do literally is to turn the book the other way round for the A to Z of our hopes, strengths and our highs. The simplicity of the words and beauty of the illustrations impressed me so much that I bought 2 copies, one for each of my daughters. This book is a collaborative effort between 2 Australians, James Kerr and Matthew Johnstone.
