The Crossroads of Should and Must: Find and Follow Your Passion

Crossroads150x186By Elle Luna

Workman Publishing

In this colorful book, Luna describes the process she went through to get to her must, which is painting. Accented by her drawings and sketches, Luna provides her personal journey. This book is intended for artists; fortunately, all of us have an artist within.

She describes the differences between should, what we feel we ought to do, and must, what we dream of doing. Mark Twain stated, “The two most important days in our life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.”

Luna provides techniques to help the reader find their why. These include looking for patterns, acquiring one new skill a month, or writing your obituary-one for the life you want to have and one for the life you’re living. She encourages readers to explore and find their passion, their heart’s desire. She includes tips to begin the process and achieve that goal. This includes evaluating the things that prevent us from moving from our should to our must: money, time, fear, and vulnerability.

Luna asks, “When you decide to look at your dreams in real life, where do you go?” The crossroads are where we get to choose.
