Beautiful things happen when you bring your passion out into your life each and every day. Do you experience these same phenomena?
#1- You bounce out of bed in the morning (no matter the time)
Today is Sunday, and my alarm went off at 5:30 am.
Let me first say, I’m not a morning person. heading to the dog kennels makes me so excited that the time doesn’t even matter. My alarm went off, I bounced out of bed easier than I normally do for my day job (which has a significantly later alarm).

Getting to spend the day surrounded by dogs is my heaven. All of the following points happen while I’m at the kennels as well.
I love that my life involves training both people (as a life coach) and dogs (as a trainer). I don’t think the combination could be better.
#2- Time flies by without your realizing it
You know the feeling I’m talking about. When your so engrossed in a task or project and you suddenly look up and an hour has already passed.
You have no concept of time, you’re just in the moment.
Everything you’re doing comes so naturally you don’t need to stop and think about it.
This is often referred to as Flow as well.
When you are passionate about what you’re doing, entering this space of flow is effortless. It just happens for you because you love what you’re doing.
Learning to call up this flow, this passion is a wonderful skill that will help you in so many avenues of your life.
#3- Your brain is quiet
For many, especially women, we have a hard time shutting off the brain. It runs away with the “what if’s” and “I should’ve” and so on.
When you’re living your passion, this is not even an issue. You are engrossed in what you are doing, again, time is flying, and those thoughts don’t even have the space to pop up and plague you.
As time is flying by, it is normal to come out of it and wonder if you even had any thoughts or worked primarily off of instinct.
It’s similar to a meditative state.
#4 Confidence comes easily
When you live your passion, there is no second guessing yourself. This is you in your element. You know what you are saying and doing. You speak to people with confidence and flow through your tasks without even thinking.
Ideas flow, creative works bloom in front of you, and people listen with rapt attention.
There is no need to “fake it ’til you make it” when you’re in this space.
You simply are confident. You wear this space like it created for you because it was!
#5- You can’t (and don’t want to) keep a smile off your face
This is perhaps my favorite “side effect” of living your passion.
Happiness, pure joy. It simply flows out of you.
You smile and don’t notice. Your cheeks may hurt.
You may also just glow. People can see that passion and confidence when you are passionate about what you’re doing and who you are.
There is a reason this post is ordered the way it is. Each one builds upon the other in a beautiful way.
One step leading to another.
We cannot all be so lucky as to bring our work and our passions together, but when we learn more about who we truly are, we can get better and better at bringing these two into one.
I believe we all have a purpose for being here on this earth or I wouldn’t have created Purpose Filled Presence. The journey is in figuring out that purpose.
Pay attention to when the above scenarios are happening. What are you doing? How often does this happen? These are clues for you. Your intuition telling you “Hey, pay attention, do more of this thing here!”
