This is my new job: guiding lovely people on lovely hikes throughout the Santa Monica Mountains in Malibu, California.
How did I get so lucky?
Well for starters, I continue to follow my heart, I don’t give up, and I don’t give in. I make joy-based decisions. Many of the ways I live my life now are due to an inner knowledge guiding me every step of the way. It coaxed me off the cruise ships and into the life waiting for me on land. All I have to do is listen to it and trust in it. It’s not always easy but it’s always an adventure. And somehow, the more I listen to it and follow it, the better life seems to get.
We all have this inner guide. All of us. And it speaks to us through the ways we are feeling. Are you experiencing joy, happiness, excitement, fulfillment, or wonderment today? Then you are most likely at one with yourself. Are you feeling fear, sadness, pain, disappointment, frustration, or anger? Then you have gotten off track. But don’t despair; getting back on track is as easy as simply seeking out the things in life that bring you bliss.
My bliss is nature. Every day, all day, I just want to be immersed in it. So it definitely wasn’t an accident that the job I would land in my new home would be one that allows me to do so – and get paid for it.
Ask yourself, what is your bliss? What makes you feel good? What causes you to lose track of time? What makes you feel blanketed in love and peace?
Do that as much as possible and get back to me with the results.
