So, this weekend I had the amazing blessing to be able to hear Matthew Kelly speak at one of his Passion and Purpose events! If you ever have the chance to hear him, GO! He has a great Australian accent :) and.... he is incredibly inspiring and engaging. One thing that stuck in mind after this talk was his encouragement to learn how to say NO. The NO that he wants every person to say is NO to things that will not help you to be the best version of yourself. NO to things that do not follow your deepest desire. How easy is it for all of us to simply say yes to people, activities, things, opportunities, temptations, etc.. that do not help us to become the "best version of ourself" (This is one of Matthew Kelly's favorite phrases!
He spoke about so many ways of creating purpose in our lives (which is what we all want, right?). The movie "Megamind" just came in my head lol... the scene where Megamind has just conquered the good guy but now he is bored out of his mind talking to "this plastic bird toy" who is never fulfilled even though he has everything he wanted. See there is even depth in a silly movie like this. :) We all want to have meaning to everything we do, and there is meaning to be had when we live according to our deepest desires and following the whisper of God in our life.
