Are you working for the next new pair of shoes or the next new fancy new car that hits the lot?
What are you hungry for? Stuff? A relationship? Are you confusing depression for the longing of something that is missing in your life?
As I listen, think, learn and write on this beautiful Sunday afternoon preparing for class on Monday; I am blown away. Blown away by Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee as he speaks on Super Soul Conversations with Oprah. A must!!
As we sit lay here on our mats on this Labor Day, I would like you all to think about why you work and do you truly love what you do. Does your job serve a purpose besides buying stuff? Remove pensions and 401k. Let's just remove money completely out of the equation.
What would you do to serve others without too many or no financial incentives? How do you think it would make you feel?
Would you be willing to take a risk and serve to remove the "me" and make into a "we"?
When you begin to serve, you will begin to discover that the important things are not "things" at all. Then all of your work comes from your mind and your heart and you get that amazing feeling in your heart and in your tummy that you want to serve everywhere.
Mother Teresa said "We can do no great things-only small things with love". She made a difference for millions of people. Remember it is not what we do that matters, it's the energy and love that we put into it that counts.
We all have to work to earn so we can give our children what they need; food, shelter and clothes on their back. So many of us want to give our children everything they want because we may have felt slighted growing up. We need to break that cycle. Let's start showing our children what it looks like to serve and help others so it will encourage them to do the same.
Day after day, I hear so many people complain about how much they dislike their job and how unhappy they are. My response is "Leave". Do what you love. What's holding you back? The answers-"Pension. 401K. and health benefits".
Guess what? This world could end tomorrow and none of it will even matter. What matters is you do what you love, serve for yourself, your children and others along the way.
Don't chase a job because of the money. Chase ways to help people and promote others, work that brings you joy, and opportunities that will help you to continue to learn and grow . Happy parents=Happy kids.
What is your goal? To be filthy rich with "things" or rich in health, happiness, knowledge, laughter and love?
Today we celebrate Labor Day honoring the American Labor movement and the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, laws and well-being of the country. Yet, almost every store and restaurant is open for business including SUKHA. I do not consider what I do work. Yes, I obviously need to charge to pay the rent and the bills, but this is love for me. Reading, writing and creating playlists ,dharmas, and sequences everyday takes time. I could not imagine, walking through these doors with a random playlist on my phone and just open a random site or book and read two sentences or rattle off some random non-sense without any reason or a why. As I learn, I share and teach. Running a business is work. Lots of work no matter how small the business is.
I am a Doterra Wellness Advocate for a few reasons. The mail reason is I would like to share these oils with as many people as I can. Why? Because I believe in them. They have helped me on so many different levels. Do I consider this "work"? Hard Labor? Nope. I am my own boss.
I share because I care. Whatever it may be.
Let's start to celebrate labors of love! A piece of hard work that you do because you enjoy it and not because you receive money or praise!
I hope each of you can find space to shine your light by helping others find theirs.
Do what you love.
Love what you do.
Help and serve others when ever you can.
I hope everyone had a great summer!
I wish all of the kids best of luck this school year. Study hard and play hard.
Keep in mind drinking makes you sloppy and slow.
