anatomy of purpose
why am i here?
what is my life all about?
what am i ‘supposed’ to be doing?
have you ever asked yourself those questions?
finding our purpose is an adventure.
often we expect or assume that our life will deliver the answer
at the time we are seeking it
we will just know.
we just keep going along
not feeling totally fulfilled doing what we are doing.
things are ok.
you love your family. where you live. but something is missing….
you want to feel more meaning.
maybe it’s time to study our anatomy?
our anatomy of purpose.
let’s take a breath.
in thru the nose
out thru the mouth.
now think about the things you want to do
but are too scared to.
think about what makes you feel good
on every level.
now see yourself doing or being those things.
lean in to the feeling of it.
notice how your cells feel.
notice how your heart feels.
in order to ‘find’ what we are here to ‘do/be’
it takes a certain level of leaning in
being willing to Leap in to the Unknown.
life really does begin at the end of our comfort zone.
when we get all comfy in mediocracy
we start to go numb
to the point that we stop noticing the clues our life is offering.
our life just starts turning off the clues because it starts to think:
‘hey. she’s not listening anyways.’
‘he is much too comfy for change. i give up.’
don’t give up on you.
don’t give up on your dreams.
peel thru the mediocracy
lean in to an experience that makes all of your cells tingle with excitement.
you lose track of time and days
you sink IN to the moment of feeling good
you expand on this until all the dots of your life are connected.
study your anatomy of purpose.
it contains most of all of the following:
love. joy. risk. excitement. leap of faith. courage. meaning.
fulfillment. tingles. magic. waves of emotion. change.
new people. new experiences. fun. laughter. tears.
discovery. adventure. growth. death. insight. tools. learning.
