In 2013 I began to have a sense that my purpose was broadening. It was a feeling that there was something ahead that was beckoning, but I wasn’t sure what that “something” was. With hard-sought patience and the encouragement of my coaches, mentors and inner guidance system, it emerged that my raison d’être is that my work and my message helps people realize they are not alone.
It sounds so simple, but what does this really mean? Well, so often terrible or fantastic things happen, but we don’t talk about them. It appears better to put a neutral face on it and look calm, like we’ve got it all together. Yet inside we’re wondering whether we’re the only one having the experience we are having. We’re left feeling alone, silenced, resolved to move through life with our “game face” on. This isn’t what I want for us. Let’s have a deeper conversation about what really matters.
Find out not just the what, but the why. Tune in Mondays at 11 AM Pacific on VoiceAmerica Empowerment.
