Hello there.  How are you doing this week so far?  Great, I hope!

I believe that living with happiness and peace is the opposite of stress, and it is destressing yourself.

I also believe, and know without a doubt, that if you find out what your purpose and passions are, you will live a magnificent life full of happiness, energy, vitality, and wholeness.

When I was very young, I knew that I loved, loved, loved to help people.  That is my purpose and passion.  As I got older, my helping people evolved.  When I was younger, I always supported the underdog at school, who was always picked on.  Because I had bigger brothers, no one would mess with me, and I took advantage of that by helping the bullied person. 

As I worked as an EMT (Emergency Medical Technician), I noticed that some people in the Emergency Field were miserable and unnecessarily angry.  A few Doctors, Fire Fighters, Nurses, Paramedics, Police Officers, and EMTs had horrible ways of handling their stress with anger, anxiety, and pure unkindness for others.  This was so heartbreaking because their behavior was extraordinarily abnormal to the average person, and they probably couldn't control it because maybe they didn't realize it.

When I first started to help the Emergency Personnel with crisis, it was a miracle.  It was a miracle because they could find happiness in all that crazy anger.  That is how my passion and purpose evolved from helping the underdog to helping the hero go from crisis to calm. 

Although I still get to help the hero, I have the opportunity every day to help the Father, Mother, Child, or Grandparent destress.  I have the chance to help teenagers and adults destress.  My passion is destressing people, and my purpose is to destress the world ;0) (Just watch me now)!

As I live my passion and purpose, I see happiness all around me, I feel the energy for life every day, and I have pure vitality.  Sure, I have my stress, everybody does, but as we find what we love to do and live it, we become less stressed.

What I am trying to say is, find out what you love to do, and if you already know what it is, start participating in it.  If you do that, I promise you that you will destress.

What do you love to do?

What would you do every day if you could?

Do you know?  If you do, are you doing it?

These are just some things you can think about as you destress.

"For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love, serve one another." ~Galatians 5:13

Whatever your purpose is, or your passions are, they are our gifts from God, and they are there so that we may use them to serve one another, not just ourselves. 


Have a super duper rest of the week!!!

Have fun!  Be playful!

Love you lots and lots ;0)
