Do it with passion!

Hectic.... Active life! One could think it is easy to make the time to follow your passion. To me, it has never been. And I would like you to tell me if you have ever been able to go for your passion whenever you wanted, or is it just me... who doesn't (and never did) have the time to just follow the calling of her heart, simply, easily, ... without barriers, no kids crying, no food to be made, no work outside home...Just you and your passion, for a few moments.

This week I read everything that was posted here, and answered some stuff with short paragraphs, just enough to let them know I care, but not long enough to take me out of my busy life. Usually I would not have written anything, because I don't have the time. But I love this online space. Here I have recovered the one thing that helps me get in touch with my inner self, my lifetime passion: WRITING.

Today I realized don´t care if I do it right or wrong. I just want to do it. For the first time in my life, I am up to giving myself the taste of writing about anything and everything that comes to life through the magic of my own written word. With passion.

So, let the games begin. I cannot promise to write well or that you will like my writing. But I can promise I will do it through my soul and heart. To let you get in touch my spirit, and share the love I hold inside for my sisters, mothers, grandmothers, daughters, and friends who may not yet know that I am here for them. Whenever they need me.

Thank you guys from Pulse Wire, for the opportunity to express myself at last.

Comments

Wow - I was moved to tears reading your entry. It speaks on so many levels to anyone and everyone who wants to give into that subtle, perfect voice that forever whispers to us to follow our heart, our passion, that thing that makes us know ourselves the deepest.
Thank you for sharing that and for being willing to embark on a journey to share much more of your writing which I am already excited to read.
Much love and blessings for the journey!!!
Your sister out there,
Jocelyn

Hi Jocelyn, thanks

Oh Boy! I am being showered by good feelings today! Thank you my very much loved Heavenly Father, for I have found the right community for me. In a world of more than six billion people, where I used to find myself lonely, I finally found THE souls that read me, my inner self, my hidden spirit.

Eager to read your entries, I yours remain Jocelyn dear.

Your sister in Bolivia (right next door).

We are both there sis!

Same feelings that we share, uh? Even though physically very far away, our spirits have just touched, through a peaceful array of colorful light..

Happy Sunday for you too.

Jonah is in bed at last...

Dinner is almost ready, the laundry is folded, and I am stealing a few minutes to come to my favorite spot, PulseWire. I want you to know that I see you. You are beautiful, generous and wise.
Love,
Jennifer

Pardon my ignorance....

I just realized that as long as I already accepted your kind invitation to be friends, you are already in my community. I thought being in the community and being friends were two different things.

Sorry! You are a dear friend of mine, we share many good feelings, as well as our names.

Thank you for reading me, sister!

Lots of love,

Jackie from Bolivia

hugs

Boy, I know what you mean by a hectic life but loving to come here. Next week will be super busy for me and I hope to have time to read the articles even if I don't have time to post on each one. I am trying to get a lot of things written and got many posted to my journal already so I have some stuff to show for when I am busy next week.

I do love the feeling of the community here, too!

I am not the only one

I am glad to realise that, i am not the only one experiencing this. i always want to do something and keeps postponing or not getting time for it.

Take care

good to share

yes at times we dont follow our passion but once you give it a chance you come to realise how sweet and comforting it is you feel that you have kept down one burden of your life never to pick it up again.
its good and sweet thanks sis

Women ALIVE, WOHOOO!

So nice - what a call some lines can make if they are written with devotion and inspiration!
We've got the chance to observe that indeed our voices are heard...
And even we are preoccupied with our daily routines - some lines of welcome and encouragement make the real meaning of living. World Pulse and Whoever created this has done an enormous step in the history ow Women Communication...
Is anyone responsible for Nobel Prizes reading ma message!!!

Congratulations!
