Find What You Love and Do More of It

Embrace the changes in the direction that life takes you.

A Privilege to Be Alive jillconyers.com #quote #believe #happiness #lovelife

Enjoy the wonderful feeling of when waking up to a new day feels like a precious privilege.

Words like purpose, intentions, happiness, priorities and even a little fear seem to be a recurring themes in my head lately. With clarity in your purpose and a change in your intentions every sunrise is a continuing journey of discovery.

Your “WHY” changes.

I don’t know exactly where all of this is taking me. I’m facing fears with confidence, embracing the changes in the direction that my life is taking and I have the comfort of knowing husband and kids are beside me for support along the way.

  1. Such a great post Jill! What a great reminder to do what we love…not what we feel like we need to do. So glad you are finding the joy!

  2. JIll, I am continuing to love all of these uplifting and positive posts, they truly show your growth and healing process. As for me, I love sunshine on my face and the kindness of others, for no reason, BOTH of those always put me in SUCH a good mood. As for my weekly menu, LOTS OF VEGGIES 🙂

  3. Great post. i usually just go with the flow ands where it takes me. 🙂

  4. I am always changing the direction of my posts…Sometimes I will write the title, but go completely blank when I want to start writing. I’ll walk away from it and come back and delete it and start with something totally different. Sometimes you just have to roll with it! 🙂

  5. I smiled at your question! Today’s post was going to be a little different than what came out–I did just let it flow. It was really reflective of what was going through my mind on my run today. Sometimes I do plan a post but most of them are just off the cuff.

    I agree with you about doing what you love. This is why I put all my energies into running and yoga, and writing. Focusing on that makes me better at everything else I do because I’m happier.

  6. Sometimes I feel like we share brain wavelengths!!! My post for tomorrow is similar to this. Sadly, I don’t know what it is that I really want to do – I was asked that yesterday morning and that is what prompted my post!!!

  7. Oh Jill I needed to read this today. I was laid off this week from one of my biggest clients and it’s been a weird week for me I need to concentrate more on what I love and something will great will happen. I’m hustling while I wait. But I need to concentrate on the things that make me happy!

  8. Jill it is so lovely to read about your journey. I feel so thankful and grateful to be able to share in this journey with you through the blog. I’ve been loving your recipes lately and continue to look forward to what you create! Enjoy the weekend!!

  9. I try to remind myself to be thankful each day when I wake up, even if there’s something going on I’m NOT looking froward to. I’m also realizing I need to make more time to do the things I love, and not to feel guilty if I’m not being busy. Lovely to read about what makes your heart full 🙂

  10. ‘Do what you love’ and words to that effect have been one of my mantras over the last 2 years – since I started to do more of the stuff that makes me happy (and ditch the other junk!) I – no surprises – got exponentially happier! It doesn’t sound like rocket science, but I really feel people don’t think they deserve/are able to do what they love enough. I was definitely there, but now I realise how easy it can be, once those things I love are identified.

  11. Loving all the P90 in your workout routine, I fell in love with strength training years ago, which was hard for me because cardio always had my heart hehe I feel your struggle reestablishing a positive relationship with food, I have been working on that over the last few months and think I am finally making progress. Hope you have a great week!

  12. Sounds like you had a great week of workouts! I feel the pain of a stream of consciousness mind at well. When I’m writing and sometimes when I’m talking at work! It makes sense in the context of my brain, anyway. I did resonate with the title and beginning of your entry. I also found the rest interesting. So no worries!

  13. When it comes to blogging, I take two approach. Some posts are methodical well thought out and sometimes I just let the words flow. If the flow becomes a little nonsensical, then I try to redirect it and sometimes it becomes two separate posts. That’s the beauty of writing. Sometimes a plan works and sometimes you just go with wherever the words from your heart take you.

    Love what is in your heart this week! Go with it, mama! xox

  14. I am constantly changing the direction of my posts- which usually just means tweaking the title of the post, not a big deal! I think its better to go with what is coming naturally rather than force a different topic. Looks like a great week of workouts (love all the yoga!) and a good meal plan for the week!

  15. LOVE this Jill! Sometimes we all get caught in the all we “have” to do, when a simple change of perspective could make all the difference as it is what we “get” to do. Love that quote image! You are so good at this! I have had a kinda mental negative mindset for me recently, and I dont like it…..there I go again! Need to find my real Tina again!

    1. Thank you Tina! Before all of this began to transpire I felt kind of lost and suddenly questioning my purpose in life. I just knew there was MORE waiting for me. Maybe that is where you are. Maybe the reason for your mindset is to get you to do a little soul searching and is actually the beginning of wonderful changes for your life. I truly believe things happen for a reason. Have a wonderful day friend!
