Hello ADs,

 

We believe that we all have a purpose in life, something that we – and only we – can bring to the world in our own unique way.

 

Not only does it light us up and make us feel fulfilled, it spreads a big dose of love and hope to a world very much in need.

 

But, as we discovered ourselves (along with many others who’ve found their own ‘Soul Calling’) is that it tends to be preceded by what we refer to as ‘The Dark Night of The Soul’.


(This is also known as ‘Rock Bottom’ to many).

 

It’s an incredibly painful and bleak period in your life where everything seems to fall apart at the seems; where all hope feels lost and you see no way out of it.

 

In Today’s Skype Nugget with our friend Rebecca Campbell – author of soon to be released ‘Light Is The New Black’ – we learned how the ‘Dark Night of The Soul’ is actually the key to discovering your life purpose, as well as 3 tips to help you light up your soul today.

 

As Rebecca shares in the video, when it comes to finding the career that lights you (and the world) up, nothing’s ever wasted.

 

All the skills and experience you’ve gained in past jobs (and life in general) is part of what will make you special and unique in your new vocation.

Remember that.

 

 

Now, we’ve got a really simple (but lovely) ‘To Do’ for you today once you’ve watched the interview. Simply write in the comments below the 5 things that most light you up (and commit to doing them more regularly!)

 

We’re so grateful for your continued support ADs – it really means so much to us ☺

Hey ADs,

 

Hope you’re enjoying summer. London’s been roasting lately, although for the first time in our lives we actually wish it wasn’t…

 

As some of you might know, we’ve very recently started writing our first book, and are having to be extremely self-disciplined about staying at our desk – even when the sun’s tempting us to take a few hours off and get our tan on.

 

Delighted as we are for this opportunity though, we’re definitely being challenged.

 

As Creatives (and former actresses), we’ve always really struggled with Perfectionism.

 

We have incredibly high expectations of ourselves and our work, and more often than not, this leads us to feeling really stuck and blocked when it comes to putting pen to paper (or fingers to keys).

 

HOWEVER, we heard a life-changing piece of advice the other day that has quite literally revolutionised the creative process for us – and if you struggle with perfectionism too, you won’t want to miss today’s Nugget.

 

No matter how skilled or accomplished your artistic abilities, you’ll never get anywhere if you’re too afraid of failing to start.

Once you’ve watched the video, we’d love to hear from you in the comments below:

 

What project have you been procrastinating over because you’re waiting for the “perfect” conditions to get started (no such thing) or are afraid of failing (you’ll never know if you never begin…)

 

Excited to hear from you ☺
