Why Do We Do What We Do?

If you’re reading this, you already know it’s not about the money. Being an artist is about honoring the power of our core desires, which we all house deep within. It’s not just about having your own business or joining a start-up. Together we are building the world using our unique talents, strengths, passions and interests. Our job is to find the work we can’t not do(watch the TED Talk here on how to find that). And we know that once we embark on the journey, the universe will manifest what we need.

Our journeys begin long before we have anything tangible to show. We’re constantly consuming information and experiences, being inspired to be and do cool things. When you prove to the universe that you have the courage to overcome your fears, you will be open to receiving unexpected gifts. Like those people that show up along your path and change your life forever.

Sweet & Spark started as a lifestyle blog many years ago so you may remember a post (here) about my experience meeting Scott Dinsmore, the mastermind behind Live your Legend. He is one of the most passionate people I’ve ever met and his work has inspired my life in so many game changing ways, including helping me find the courage to quit my day job. When I found that he recently passed away in a tragic accident, I started shaking. We don’t know how much time we have. 

Leaving an intangible legacy is the most honorable achievement that humankind can create. For Scott, let's continue to live our lives full of passion and inspire that possibility in others, each and every day. So that when our time comes, we've helped to make this world a better place.
