Have you ever been in the middle of doing something that you’re apparently really stoked about doing, only to suddenly pay attention to what you’re actually feeling and suddenly you’re all…wait a minute! I’m not having a good time AT ALL.
I set about writing an article about pursuing our life’s calling and that’s exactly what happened. I was jaw clenched and pushing through. Which is weird. Because I really dig life’s calling and I really dig writing. So instead of rising up and meeting my deadline, I went to bed with a cup of tea.
It was glorious.
Then I came back to it, when I could really line up my own creative impulse, my own refined understanding of the complexity of doing our work with the blank and begging page. Simple really and totally META, since I got to bring what I’m exploring in this article, right up front and center with my own work.
So I invite you to grab your own cup of tea, dig into your own heart, your experience of your own work and kick back with this exploration of what it takes to pursue your life’s calling, from my soul to yours.
