Understanding our purpose is not always so easy, running with the world’s pace is even more frustrating. We watch TV and hear stories about the unthinkable or we read the tales about explorers wondering how they achieved their goals.
In order for us to understand our purpose we have to think and make sure we have designed a solid plan for our lives.
Every year millions of people make new years resolutions and then begin the first day of January worried and nervous and wondering when and why they are going to fail. Its almost part of the resolution knowing that it really won’t last anyway but – hey what the heck! I think New Years resolutions are quite ridiculous, because I feel that daily resolutions better serve us.
New years resolutions are made to be broken and if you think for one moment about that, you’ll also see that everyone of us has daily personal challenges that we might spend a life time trying to correct or understand or even care to define. I love Rick Warrens book” The Purpose Driven Life” because through it all I come to understand that the greatest gift on earth is the privilege to understand your purpose and to be able to love.
I work with the most amazing group of woman better known as the Dancing Chefs. To tell you the truth, I wish I was starting out in my twenties working and dancing and wondering and dreaming about my life. Dreaming, no problem, time left on this planet, an issue!
The purpose of our show is to entertain but the back end of our show has a purpose much more important. At every show we collect for a different charity around the world through our Miss Lela (see www.salsalela.com) and each month we give away hundreds of dollars to that charity.
We all feel and know and think the same about Miss Lela that our show has purpose, even heart and compassion.
Salsa and Salsa has reached over $30k for different charities around the world. We think its our purpose to help animals, sick and impoverished people on this planet, one dollar at a time, one day at a time, we forge ahead to make our purpose known.
This year and the next (just in case) my personal resolution will be to create a foundation for Lela, so that we can continue to Lead, Encourage, Live and Act as our beautiful creator intended.
This year we will all continue to Dance for those who can’t, to cook for the handicapped and continue to discover our purpose driven lives. Moving through the world and through ourselves to ignite the love we share.
Happy New Year from All the Dancing Chefs
And may you achieve your highest goals in the name of love!
