I recently read a beautiful quote from Michelle Phan:
“It made me realize how we can easily forget our childhood dreams and hopes because of work, obligations, and life struggles. I learned how reconnecting with your inner child will help bring you closer to your higher self and sense of purpose.”
Combine it with the book I’m currently reading, The Alchemist, which is about pursuing our ‘Personal Legend’ (or personal calling), it prompted me to re-evaluate what I want to do with my life, what is my true passion where I would put my whole heart into. Because I believe that, only by accomplishing our personal calling, can we prove ourselves worthy of the miracle of life, and understand why we are here.
I’m still in the phase of figuring it out, and if you’re the same, I’d like to share a sentence from The Alchemist: “Whenever we are doing something that fills us with enthusiasm, we are following our legend.” So, why don’t we start from there? 🙂 Or, as Michelle said, by reconnecting with your inner child. Ask yourself, what made you happy when you were a kid? More often than not, it is your true passion, because we didn’t do it for money, or to impress others; we just did what made us happy.
And if you’ve found your personal calling, I hope you have the courage to pursue it. Good luck to us all! 🙂
