Positive Blogging - On Purpose

So, last week I blogged about bathrooms, this week I am participating in A Week of Positive Blogging, initiated by my blog brother from Israel, Ehav Ever. The blogosphere is so amazing – I have met folks all over and had some awesome connections. I have to tell you, if you are not on Facebook, get yourself over there. I have been having a blast on Facebook, and have not even scratched the surface. Yes, I have nothing better to do. NOT!

Anyway, for the first day of the Week of Positive Blogging, we are asked to blog about any person, place or thing that has created a positive memory. Well, I don’t have that much time and my fingers cannot type that long – so I will narrow that down a bit. And although I could list many, many things here, I will focus on one of my favorite quotes from the Sufi poet Rumi:

“Let the beauty of what you love, be what you do.”

When I first read that quote, I was just getting into personal development and empowerment work. I love empowering women and being a witness to their “aha moments.” This I find extremely rewarding and an honor. Because I have found my passion and purpose, I have also found so many ways to manifest that in my life and in the world. This blog is just one of the ways I make my passion come alive. I am able to connect with so many women, and men, across the blogosphere.

When I allow the beauty of what I love and what I am passionate about to become what I do, not only does it create positive energy in my life but also in the lives of all those I come in contact with.

When you can allow the beauty of what you love to be what you do, you will find that more of that beauty coming to you. You cannot help but draw to you more beauty and more passion. Operate in beauty and love, and receive more in abundance.

Live in beauty and passion,
Coach Carolyn

Love that Rumi quote! It is obvious that you are in your element with what you're doing. Great post!

So true indeed. Thanks for writing that. In a day in time where women the world over are being abused or having their images portrayed in in the wrong way, it is refreshing to see a woman as your self stepping into that void to be an example of what we call in Hebrew Eshet Chayil translation "A Woman of Valor". Keep up the good work. Day 1 went very well because of posts like yours.

Ehav, thanks for taking the initiative on this project. A Woman of Valor, I do like that!

Thanks for stopping by.

Hey Carolyn. I forgot to mention that Eshet Chayil are Hebrew words from Proverbs 31. Before Friday night dinner for the Sabbath, Jewish families sing Proverbs 31 about the Eshet Chayil to the mother of the home.
