As a starving artist (musician and teacher) for the past 20 years, what it means to “follow your passion” has changed for me over time. Who I have chosen to surround myself with has also changed. How did it shift? Focusing on how I want my life to feel, rather than how I want my life to look is at my transitional center. Much like the appearance of ease in music performed at a masterful level, learning to operate more from the sensations I get from my life choices, and how those choices effect my experiences, is much easier said than done. Not even easy to say really but has ultimately resulted in shifts from “thoughts” of happiness in to experiences of joy!
