Lesson 3's Quote:
Rumi always had a wonderful way of articulating intimate human experiences. Nearly every quote I've ever come across spoken by Rumi has resonated deeply within me. In the past 6 months of my life, I have felt drawn towards my more creative nature. For most of my 22 initial years, I never tapped in to the artist within me, and secretly believed I simply was not one of the lucky few to be born as a natural creative. It wasn't until I finally had time to slow down and examine myself that I realized how my creative nature was nearly dying to come out. From this discovery, my blog was eventually born.
The process of sharing my thoughts, inspirations, photos, and musings with you all has been overwhelmingly therapeutic. It never feels like work to post, to go and explore all your own personal blogs, or to find new topics to discuss or feature. I believe this is what passion feels like.
The life lesson here is that when teachers and mentors say "Find what your passionate about and you will never work a day in your life," it truly can be done, and it can be done for you. Another great quote addressing this issue says, "Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive" (Howard Thurman).
I can't say enough how grateful I am to all my readers who drop by and leave a comment or a word of encouragement. It's such a blessing, and I am so thankful God has led me to this place in my life. While I always enjoy reading posts, I want to emphasize that for me this blog is primarily a means of self-expression, a place I feel it is safe to go and pour out the overflow of my thoughts and inspirations. I promise that The Peak of Tres Chic will always stay true to my primary purpose. I do hope you find encouragement and inspiration from what I share.
On another note, you may have noticed I changed the title of my survival skills post from "Survival Skills for Young Women" to "Survival Skills for Women", because, let's be honest- the beautiful process of self-discovery is continuous and doesn't stop at a certain age.
