What drives you? Let me explain.
Most of us, at some point, reach a place of longing. We long for contentment. A deeper purpose.
What we may not realize… Often, our experiences in life are clues. Like pieces of a purpose-puzzle. If we take the time, we’ll discover how it all fits and can begin an action plan.
Putting the Pieces Together
Once, I wanted to be the strongest woman ever. I worked out regularly. Counted calories. Convinced this was my life’s goal. And it wasn’t long before I began running around protecting people. When I saw a girl being picked on, I came to the rescue. Chasing boys… Too young to realize this is simply what young boys do.
As time went on, my need to defend others began to change. I became more creative. I liked science. Yet still found myself drawn to people. Especially those who seemed discouraged.
I would often look for ways to cheer them up.
Don’t Downplay the Journey
Looking back, my interests might seem sporadic – but each experience fits in a way that helps me be who I am today. One who mixes research with creative concepts to encourage others.
Our journey in life can be filled with clues.
Pause. Reflect… Discover how the pieces fit. Then – go for it!
