You know that feeling you get when you really look forward to something? That high you get when you are leaving for vacation tomorrow? You are so excited to go somewhere new, to be on vacation, maybe you are going to the beach and who doesn’t love the beach?!?! Its a high that we all have probably felt when we have something we are really looking forward to. Its this inner energy that we get supernaturally. What I have found is we can live with this excitement every day of our life if we want to. Usually people experience this supernatural energy when they are going on vacation or traveling or going to an amusement park because they don’t really enjoy their everyday life so they get so excited about something in the future that they know will be better. I don’t think this is the right way to live. I think we can experience this every day of our life if we want, if we so choose.
I got so sick and tired of looking forward to 5pm and the weekend and wasting so many hours of my life looking forward to something as opposed to just being excited about every current present moment. I decided that I wanted to live everyday of my life with that excitement I used to feel looking forward to the week vacation I was going on that summer, or that feeling I had looking forward to that big soccer game I had on the weekend. I didn’t know how to make that happen but I knew it was possible to live with that energy and I committed to figuring it out. I truly believe that we are wasting our life if we are always overestimating tomorrow and underestimating today. If you are always looking forward to 5pm and the weekend then you need to change EVERYTHING. Your mindset, your goals, your dreams, maybe even your career because I sit here with full credibility that you can live everyday with that excitement for the present moment.
Let me tell you how I found it. I say it often, maybe so much you are tired of me saying it, but you need to find the god given purpose for your life, your calling. Because I have found my purpose, and I am moving forward everyday I live with that energy and excitement not for something in the future but for this present moment. Why? Because I am excited to see what my creator is going to do everyday. If this is truly my calling, my purpose, then I know God is going to do something everyday and I live with that anticipation and supernatural energy, every second of the day. A friend of mine explained it as she feels “guided.” When you find your God given purpose and you decide to go all in, you will feel guided everyday. When you feel guided every moment is exciting because you live knowing today something good is happening. Not tomorrow, not next week, not next month, but today. You need to have an organic dream, a vision for what you want, but you need to live with excitement and energy for today. Knowing your purpose and going ALL IN everyday of your life gives you that energy, enthusiasm and excitement we all love feeling.
