I'm a hummingbird. I learned this from Elizabeth Gilbert. Essentially, it means that I have many passions, not just one. And that's OK. I also learned that to the extent that I am feeding those passions in my life, I am a happier, more productive person all around.
"Follow Your Passion" is something we hear almost every day - whether from some Instagram quote or a motivational speaker. It can sound oversimplified and the words can ring hollow.
After studying and living this "purpose-seeking" journey since 2007, I'm much more interested in inviting people to follow their joy instead. I wholeheartedly believe that bringing curiosity and action into things that make you happy is key to our fulfillment and success in life.
And so, I am over the moon excited to announce Follow Your Joy Community Chats.
I'll be hosting this exciting monthly series this Fall at Filling Station Lofts in partnership with the amazing Arts and Entertainment District. I will interview people I absolutely adore and admire who chose to follow their joy through passion projects that led to phenomenal and inspiring outcomes.
Our goal is that you are inspired, excited, and that you get straight-talk, ideas and real insights and ideas to use in your own joy journey.
Join us this October 4th at 6:30pm and meet Justin Wales and Sara Yousuf from Engage Miami (an amazing platform to engage young people in civic participation), and The Plantain (Miami's very own source of satirical news with over 250K monthly visitors).
It's gonna be magical and it's free with your RSVP.
