“Joy is the holy fire that keeps our purpose warm and our intelligence aglow.”
What is it that you do that brings you joy? When do you feel fully alive and that every fiber of your being is singing in glorious harmony? Does it have anything to do with your vocation, or does it even need to?
These aren’t questions you should ignore. It is an absolute imperative that you must find your source of joy. It is the coal that stokes the fires and allows you to weather any storm and deliver your best self to those you love and those whom you serve. If you don’t have a fire burning, one you tend to regularly, how on earth can you show up and be your very best? What happens if your fire goes out?
