…What lights you up?
One thing for me is being outside in nature, feeling fully alive – especially in the early morning.
There was a time when I thought that what lit me up was a big house, a convertible car, a wardrobe (several!) full of clothes. Gradually I realized that whilst these are all cool, and yup; I do appreciate them on a certain level – what’s higher on my values-list are nature and connection with those I love.
Being in beautiful places with family and framily is what jazzes me these days.
This realization has shifted my life-focus from material ‘stuff’ to connecting with my spiritual source and those loved ones I treasure. 1
It’s also led me to create a level of freedom so that I’m able to support foundations I believe in and live the lifestyle I used to muse about.
As ever, I’m curious to learn, what is it for you; what spins your wheels?
In the meantime, check out this week’s #AliveWithFi for musings on this vital topic.
