I feel like there are always moments in our lives where we have absolute clarity. Those moments where time freezes, a light bulb goes off, and you just get it. You understand the reason behind the struggles, frustrations, and continuous disappointments. Those core moments where you feel at peace with the world and know you have found the thing for which you have been made. Some of you reading this may not have had this moment yet but you will. I have no idea how I was so lucky to find the thing that brightens my life at such a young age but I am eternally grateful that I did. I was given the opportunity to help begin a program that I absolutely adore. It has given me the ability to find what I believe is my true life calling: speaking. Granted, at first this wasn't the plan. I had no idea I would fall in love with speaking ( let alone that I would be half way decent at it). It wasn't until my senior year of high school, talking to middle school students at the same junior high that I had been bullied at, that I had my moment. It was during that speech talking to around 700 students that I broke down and shared my story and finally found peace. I know that I am not the only student who has had to face difficulties but I truly believe that mine lead me to something bigger. Bullying, depression, feeling alone, and unwanted is an epidemic in our society ESPECIALLY for our youth. Knowing this I had to tell myself, I have a story, and a voice, and a message that has the capability of making an impact in someones life, so who am I not to share it? What will happen or where this journey will take me, who knows, but I am anxious to find out and continue experiencing the overwhelming peace that surrounds me each time I hit the stage.
So what is your moment? What experience has brought you that sense of value and purpose? It may not be like mine but it its still just as important. No matter what it is no matter how crazy or impossible it may seem do it anyways! Never in a million years would I have thought at 19 I would have a blog, a website, and be pursuing a career in motivational speaking but I am. I have no idea if I will be successful, if anyone will book me, if I will ever be able to support myself doing the thing I love most. However, I do know that if I never try I will surely fail and that's just not an option. So be BOLD , take a chance at pursuing the thing that makes your heart soar, do not let that moment of absolute clarity go to waste. And remember, even if it hasn't happened yet it will, and it's going to be amazing!
