Passion Map – Do You Have One?

The global pandemic and yo yo-ing UK restrictions over the past year + has enabled a period of reflection for us all.

“Where are we?” “Are we happy and fulfilled?” “Is something missing?” “Am I on the wrong road?” “Are my relationships healthy or toxic?”

Just some of the questions we may have considered over this time.

Catching glimpses of the highlights of HRH Prince Philip’s funeral over the weekend and seeing some of the unique things he had planned – such as symbols of his love of carriage racing and land/range rovers – got me thinking about how much planning we put into living our best lives.

How many of us run on automatic pilot? Doing everything as habit almost on automatic pilot just means we are existing not living.

Having a Passion Map enables us to really examine all areas of our life and ask ourselves those difficult questions. Especially “am I where I want to be?” or “am I on the path to get where I want to be?”

Slowly, we are seeing the seeds of change – restrictions are gradually lifting. Is now the time to devise our own Passion Map?

Life is too precious to return to automatic living.

What do you think?

Chef Omari

Flicking through the papers this weekend, I came across this fabulous story within the cooking section.

In my view, it should be front page news – uplifting, encouraging children they are never too young to achieve and oozes the thought they do not need to be held back by any ‘labels’!

Omari wants to be the ‘next Gordon Ramsey without the meat or swearing’.

Home schooled because his teachers brandied Omari an ‘underachiever’ who could not do his SATS because he has Dyslexia, Omari’s interest in vegan cooking took off. He has a cook book due for release in January 2021, his own TV show ‘What’s Cooking Omari’ and his own brand of dips.

What an achiever! I hope the teachers who told Omari he was an ‘under achiever’ will realise their mistake and start seeing the individual talent within every child – which will not always be academic but just as valuable if not more so.
