Sometimes it’s a little difficult to determine if any facet of our life is soul-prospering. We know what we mean by that phrase but yet we have trouble identifying it, perhaps because we can’t seem to articulate what we mean.

Here are a few words that can help you describe for yourself what you mean by the phrase ‘crafting a soul-prospering life’:

~Passion, obsession, unwavering interest;

~Purpose, mission, destiny;

~Deeply meaningful to you–tapping into that which is at the core of you;

~Making a difference – impactful;

~Doing and giving without any thought of “what’s in it for me”.

Here are a few emotions that can also help you define what ‘crafting a soul-prospering life’ means to you:

~Feeling a level of ecstasy–the actual emotion, not the drug!–when you’re engaged in your purpose/mission/destiny;

~Being so grateful that you’re lucky enough to follow your passion/deep interest, with the icing on the cake being that you are making a difference in others’ lives;

~It matters — your life matters and makes a difference to you and to others, and what you are doing matters and makes a difference in your life and the lives of others;

~You keep coming back to it and, even though the object of your interest or passion may change, the essence of it is still the same;

~If you’ve tried to ignore or squelch or run away from it, it won’t go away; it won’t leave you alone;

~The object of your passion/interest/obsession and your purpose/mission/destiny regarding it is bigger than yourself and the needs of your ego; it has the potential to touch hundreds or thousands, and perhaps millions, of lives;

~It isn’t about the money or the fame or the social standing or prestige–although those may be a by-product. It’s about righting a wrong, standing against injustice, helping those who are hurting. In essence, it’s about making the world a better place, as clich├ęd and hackneyed as that sounds.

Take time today to think about all facets and aspects of your life using these words and emotions. Also, remember to use as a guide my friend’s life–the person we talked about in yesterday’s post.

Let me know what you discover!

Thanks!

Your Friend and Pep Pal,
Lauren
