A lesson from Louboutin

  There is a spiritual teacher named Bashar, who often speaks of following your highest excitement as a source for spiritual growth. This has been a thorn in my side, as I never saw many of the things that bring me joy as benefiting the planet in a very impactful way. But I recently came upon a quote that was a bit of a light bulb moment for me:
“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” ~ Howard Thurman
  These words resonated with my heart and were a partial inspiration for the creation of this blog. Another inspiration was Monsieur Christian Louboutin. Being a lover of beautiful things and shoes like many women, I find his shoes drool worthy to say the least! The man himself is an inspiration and example of what your life can become when you let your inner child take the lead. Below, you will find an interview with Monsieur Louboutin and I hope it inspires you like it inspired me.
  My question for you is: What is it that you love? What is your highest excitement? How can you bring that joy into the world? Could you imagine living on a planet that was full of people following their joy? I can, and the thought of it makes my heart burst with delight!

  I leave you with this thought. The next time you are out shopping and see something luxurious that you'd like to own but think may be a little too extravagant, remember Mr. Louboutin and know that the beautiful shoe, bag, dress, car was created out of someone's joy and highest excitement!
