Back to Blogging on to My Passion

Brilliant! It’s Monday and I’m back to blogging. I am dying to get started this week. Why? Well I can return to being a full time blogger.

As you can see I am back! Although I have been blogging on and off , in truth I have been far less active than ever before since becoming a full time blogger. Although I have been fully absorbed by the things I have been doing, I have to admit I’ve really missed blogging and everything it involves.

It has felt really strange not being able to keep to my regular routine. My time away really has shown me how important blogging has become to me. Now it is important for me to regain the momentum.

The last month or so has been a constant and sometimes frustrating juggling of priorities, stress (yes even for me) and working against the clock.

Never will I complain about being chained to my laptop. Even positive people, which is what I certainly am, struggle when there are a lot of bumps and bruises on their journey. In the last month a situation came about where I had to help others find the courage and the hope they needed to get up off the floor through a traumatic event. I have been constantly by their side helping them through a very rough, difficult period, and helping them salvage as much of their life and possessions as I could. It has been a physically and mentally draining period, but it was something I had to do.

I did at times feel guilty about leaving my blog and online business without me. My business partners having to fend for themselves. But this was something I could not turn my back on. I was needed, and there was no alternative. One day I will write about this situation, no holds barred, but I will wait until the wounds have healed for those it concerns. It is something I will not let rest.

To give you the sense of my outrage, and to forewarn you of a cause that in the future I will be taking up I will say one thing. How any society would allow an 81 and 83 year old couple to be thrown out of a home is unthinkable. When one of these people has serious dementia it is unforgiveable. When numerous solutions were available which would of become apparent, if all parties involved sat around a table, the situation brought about is monstrous. One day the story will be written.

But today I can return to normal which is why I jumped out of bed in a state of excitement. Back to the blogosphere, facebook and all those things I’ve realised that have become so important to me.

This past month has been remarkable in a way. Seeing so many people sleepwalking through life, whose real world brings them no joy and no excitement. They feel something is missing in their life, that there is something more to life. But they never do anything to change things, worse still they more often than not fall prey to their circumstances

Yet there is me already living a life full of passion. Life is meant to be enthralling and passion is what makes our life fulfilling. Everyone is capable of pursuing their passion.

Passion provides us motivation to keep moving whenever life tries to knock us down. It is our shield protecting us against life’s knocks.

When you are driven by your passions you start to see your problems as life opportunities. When many run from challenges, you stand up to them and put everything in.

So from today I need to get back into the swing of posting to my blog daily, and responding to my comments, and reading other blogs, so there’s much to do. But I’ve learned a few things during this hiatus, not the least of which is that the break that I took was extremely beneficial. Why, you might ask?

It has given me time for reflection. Running a blog can be extremely time-consuming. Anyone who is reading this, assuming you run your own blog, understands that fact. Sometimes we get so caught up in the process, that we forget why we started blogging in the first place. I started my blog because I love personal development, and coaching others. Taking that break reminded me how much I truly do love helping and supporting people through personal growth. It’s been something I’ve loved since I was a child and my Mum introduced me to Jose Silva.

This time off has given me the courage to go with my convictions.

Have you ever had an inkling to do something bold, but shrugged it off?

Or started a project, only for it to fizzle out?

Sometimes we let go the things that really matter to us.

Is it a lack of confidence? A fear of looking stupid? Or do you have so many ideas, you simply don’t know where to start?

Becoming a blogger impassioned me with direction, purpose and provided me a platform to share ideas with others. I was moved to share what has been valuable to me in creating a happy and healthy life, and sharing my passion, ultimately making a difference.

As a life coach, my business (and my passion!) is helping people discover what they were born to do—and then helping them do it! To help others maximize their potential. When you have a personal coach giving you that kind of support, you’ll be amazed at what you can accomplish!

When you discover your passions you unleash your limitless potential and empower yourself to reach thresholds of personal success, fulfillment and prosperity that most only dream about.

And I love helping people discover their passions. In fact I’m really good at doing it. And nothing can be more rewarding than helping another to grow and live with more clarity, fulfilment, connection and meaning.

So that is what The FREE Support Group needs to be all about. Finding Your Passions. To provide information, coaching, training, support and encouragement in the pursuit of passion and fulfilling your destiny.

What I do know is that people on the path of continuous personal development are 100% more likely to succeed than those who settle for what ‘is happening to them’ right now.

My hope is that people who are lost, stuck in a boring dull routine, will join this support group and benefit from the resources that we will provide. I hope that it will become a growing community, sharing, networking, inspiring and supporting like minded passionate people. We offer information, training, tips and techniques to help you on your self development journey

Let me share my experiences and resources with you, so you too can enjoy the power and joy that only living your passions can bring! If you want enthusiastic partners to walk with you toward a life of purpose and passion, join us. A coach may be just what you need to take your life to a new level! I promise you it’s FREE. This is my passion and joy. This is what I love to do.

    Love your passion for all that you do, Larry, and so glad to see you up and running again!
    Inspiring words today as always. 🙂
    Blessings!

    • Larry Lewis February 27, 2012 at 1:22 pm

      Martha thank you so much for your continued support, and receiving praise from you always feels like it is multiplied. Just know it is fantastic to be able to turn my attentions fully again to what I love, and can’t wait to get back into the full flow of things.

  2. Mary Hudak-Colllins February 27, 2012 at 1:27 pm

    I’m happy to seeing you back at what you love to do…blogging. You can have the best of two worlds. It takes a little more work with scheduling, but I do it. Some days, it is overwhelming trying to juggle everyday life routines and blogging. You just have to tap into your creative side ☺

    • Larry Lewis March 4, 2012 at 7:48 am

      Normally Mary scheduling and time management are my fortays, but in this partiucular instance, i had no option but to give all my time to support others through their crisis, knowing my blog, readers, friends and business would be safe and readyt for my return.

  3. Loddy Micucci February 27, 2012 at 7:39 pm

    Wow it speaks to me. Very inspiring Larry, you have woven your love of blogging and passion for helping people into a masterful story of what has been happening to you in the last few weeks. It leads people to realise that happiness and finding your passion is what it is all about. The icing on the cake is that you and the team can lead them to find their passion if they so desire.

    Isn’t it amazing when we seem to be a channel for the message to come out it’s like an out of body experience.

    • Larry Lewis March 4, 2012 at 7:50 am

      Loddy the connection between following your passion and enjoying your journey of life is inter woven, and have no doubts when you do make your passions, your lifes work, great things happen, and life becomes great for you and those you touch.

  4. John Jarvis February 28, 2012 at 12:50 am

    Larry Lewis I am so sorry to hear of your misfortune.

    I had no idea! Sometimes life gets in the way of our
    true passion.

    Speaking of which, I think a few days ago I finally
    started to *get it*.

    • Larry Lewis March 4, 2012 at 7:53 am

      John great to know you’re still around. Alas yes sometimes life throws us a curve ball. I had to follow my true principles in life, you know i’m about making the difference, helping others, i was needed elsewhere, it called me away from this blog that you know i love so much, but thank god i have a great team that were able to fill in for me while i was gone. I’m glad you are still learning!

  5. jan February 28, 2012 at 1:05 am

    So glad to see you back, I have missed your words of encouragement. I am working hard to follow my heart at the moment. Sometimes I still let life grab me and throw me around, but I am getting better. Thank you.

    • Larry Lewis March 4, 2012 at 7:55 am

      Jan, we can’t master our destiny in a blink of an eye it takes time. It also necessitates setbacks. By the mere fact you are aware of the need to follow your heart and are working towards it, half the battle is won. I’m here, and if you ever need any further encouagement or guidance, i don’t plan on disappearing again, so come ask.

  6. Alpana Jaiswal February 28, 2012 at 1:26 pm

    When can I get back to serious blogging also?????????? I wish I could,its therapy for me..Thank you Dear Larry for this very inspirational post.

    • Larry Lewis March 4, 2012 at 8:00 am

      When the time is right Alpana. Blogging will always be there for you. And know this blogger will follow you whenever it is. I hope you are winning your battles!

  7. Lilach Bullock February 28, 2012 at 6:43 pm

    Larry nice to see you’re back again:) You were missed:)

    Sometimes it’s actually good to have a break and reflect and make changes. Better to come back with a bang:)

    • Larry Lewis March 4, 2012 at 8:06 am

      Lilach, thank you so much. There is no doubt that the time away, although frustrating, it certainly gave me time to think and generate some interesting thoughts, some of which may be showing themselves through this blog in one way or other pretty soon.

  8. Judy A Murphy February 28, 2012 at 11:53 pm

    Hi Larry,
    I enjoyed your, blogging on to My Passion, you are right it makes you open your mind and before you know it, you’ve released a whole bunch of stuff that needed to be off your chest, it can make you feel better, and in some cases can take away confusion and stress. In some ways you regain ownership, and self worth especially if you’ve been going through some tough times. Thank you Larry!

    • Larry Lewis March 4, 2012 at 8:17 am

      There are so many benefits of blogging and not all of them are in what we give to others. There is no doubts that whenever we are dealing with a situation, have thoughts going around in our head, questions needing answering, to me, the best way to deal with them, is to start writing a blog post. By the end i have my answewr, and a post that clearly shows genuiness and deep thought. Thank you for seeing this within what i write

  9. Carl Ashton February 29, 2012 at 3:48 pm

    hey Larry!

    wow, i can really feel your passion through your words in this post, great to see you back 🙂

    I love personal development too, have done for about 8 years. It definitely seems to be a huge passion for you, so I am really looking forward to your future blog post!

    Carl.

    • Larry Lewis March 2, 2012 at 1:00 pm

      Thank you Carl. It’s great to be back. Personal Development is both a great way of being, and of teaching. I truly do love everything about it, but particularly what it enables us to do with our lives. Guys like you know its power, and putting it through blogging helps so many people. i love knowing that we are making a contribution.

  10. Larry Lewis March 4, 2012 at 7:59 am

    Elizabeth hi. Isn’t it fantastic the length us bloggers will go to make sure we can get our articles published? That’s commitment, and definetely passion. The beauty of building a business around blogging and location independent lifestyle is the facxt that we can blog from anywhere as long as we have internet access, even public transport. Keep it going! I hope you enjoy your new work,

    Hello stranger probably way to late to comment on this. I kept checking in but your home page did not change for months so I did not realise things were still happening. After spending several years working with people who have dementia I’m sadly not suprised.
