I am a lover of quotes. Inspirational, funny, philosophical, anything that just grabs my attention and makes me go hmm. . .I intend to share a quote a week with you here, and whatever my thoughts happen to be at the time.
It is love that asks, that seeks, that knocks, that finds, and that is faithful to what it finds. ~St. Augustine
I feel that I have finally found “it.” That purpose in life that I have been asking, seeking, knocking on doors for. I wanted to give up the search many times, and often I felt I was seeking for the sake of seeking.
Still, something within me gave me the impetus to keep going. Something stirred the restlessness in my soul that kept me from settling. Something gently pushed me along the river of my life until I reached this point.
That something was love. Love for myself and the Creator that put me here. Love for joy and knowledge and the ability to help others. I knew it was possible to find work that was mentally, financially and spiritually rewarding. Work that felt like meeting your soulmate. I saw other people experience it and so badly wanted to be counted among them.
I have taken the first steps to being part of that group. Starting my own business based on my unique gifts and interests is spiritually and mentally rewarding, if not yet financially. I firmly believe that the monetary rewards will follow my faithfulness, however.
This will be the hard part. Staying faithful to what love and hope have shown me: this business. Thankfully, there are many guides to help along the way.
What has love shown you and how do you remain faithful?
