What’s your passion?

Have you ever wanted more? That’s a loaded question, right? And what exactly does more mean? In a world where we are surrounded by Pinterest-worthy quotes about following our passion and seeking our “best life”, it is easy to feel inadequate. I remember asking myself the same question.  “Don’t I want more?” My answer truly was – I don’t know. More what? What does that even mean? Am I missing out on some big mysterious life question? Or even worse – the big mysterious answer?

I once read a quote (it is definitely Pinterest worthy; in fact, that may have been where I read it). This quote said something profound about following what your passion is and never working another day in your life. Not working another day? I’ll take that please! One serving of passion coming right up!

But seriously… What is your passion? If you’re anything like me, you have no idea.  I’ll admit, I have a love/hate relationship with social media. I absolutely love being able to spy on my teenagers, watch videos, read inspiring stories, laugh at funny jokes and post pictures of my babies berry stained face and her raspberry topped fingers waving at the camera. However, I also recognize the enormous amount of pressure that social media can create. It seems like a great idea to find your passion; but who has time when we’re busy cleaning toothpaste out of our hair, signing a field trip permission slip, and drinking coffee, all while driving with one knee on my way to work.

Ladies, I’m gonna be honest. Like, REAL honest. Somedays, I rock my life. I’m up early make it to the gym, pack school lunches, feed my dogs (they appreciate that, I’m sure) and maybe even remember to mail my bills when I rush out the door.  However, more often than not, I barely have time to shower, we’ve had no milk for days, I’m cooking chicken nuggets for dinner for the 3rd time that week, and those bills I’m paying are for last month, not this month.  Find my passion? Let me remember to look for that while I’m carpooling and cleaning and grocery shopping and… oh yea, working.

But oh wow, do we have something in store for YOU. A time out. A day of inspiration, of sisterhood, of JOY (and maybe even a few mimosas).  We are bringing you Illuminate Wenatchee. A fun filled, dynamic day for women of this valley to stop, breathe, and maybe, just maybe figure out that they have already found their passion and are gratefully living it.

Illuminate Wenatchee Women’s Conference is designed for US. For YOU. For the stay at home mom, the working mom, the grand mom, or maybe the no-mom (you know, women who don’t have kids).  The busy professional, the volunteer, the entrepreneur. WOMEN. This conference is for WOMEN.  October 19th and 20th. Join us!
