To Live A Fulfilling Life, Listen To Your Soul

I always knew that I was a creative person, ever since I was a child and even at times when I would say “I’m not creative”.

Deep down, I knew that that was not true.

Deep down, I always knew that I always had a creative heart and most importantly that I had a creative soul.

After all, we’re all a little bit creative!

I’ve never really understood how or even why I had this thing that I now call a power.

This power was also highly guided by my curiousity but I just never really understood why I wanted to do certain things or even why I wanted to learn about them.

All my life I was just driven by an unexplicable force that made me want to do certain things.

Despite everyone telling me that I wasn’t good enough or that it wasn’t a good idea because of this or that reason, I just couldn’t bring myself to listen to all of those people.

All I could hear was that certain things were calling for me to learn how to do them.

That’s how I ended up teaching myself how to dance at the age of 8 and I taught myself how to draw just a few years ago.

Those things just called for me.

They were all things that I needed to do.

They were just things that I needed to learn how to do.

So I just learned.

And now, I’m doing them.

And it’s like my soul is at peace.

It’s like my soul is happy.

As if it had been fed.

And I think that that’s actually what happened.

My soul was craving all those things and it needed me to just do them and now that I am doing them, it’s not rumbling anymore.

It’s not feeling empty anymore.

It’s actually quite full.

And I guess that that’s what the word “fulfilling” means.

Living a fulfilling life simply means living a life where you are constantly filling your soul until it’s full and satisfied.
