Journey to My Life’s Purpose

peggy color edited In December last year, I decided to make a change to my career.  I was a successful senior project manager for a large pharmaceutical company.  I managed the safety reporting of the company’s flagship drug with a large diverse team.  While I enjoyed my job and the peeps I worked with immensely, I felt as if I was not living to my true life’s purpose.   I felt as if I was missing out on my true calling but did I know what that was?

After much soul searching, meditation, journaling and connecting within, I felt I knew that my purpose on this earth was to teach, inspire, and empower people.  As an ER nurse for 17 years, I worked directly with injured and sick patients being an advocate as well as educating and empowering them.  This gave me great satisfaction.  When I moved into the corporate world, I felt I lost a lot of that purpose but frankly it paid the bills and was quite lucrative.

Reconnecting with that purpose has not been a straight line.  There has been much work I have done and continue to do in my head; to release fear – fear of working for myself, fear of failure, fear if there will be enough money to pay the bills and even fear of success.  When I realized that fear is another emotion of excitement, I was able to release the emotion that were connected to beliefs that were not mine but from past experiences of others.

I also spend a great amount of time reignite my faith in God as well as within me! While I acknowledge that I hold the decisions to my destiny, I believe that there is a greater energy (God) that is delivering opportunities and messages to guide me in my life’s purpose.   It is up to me to open my heart and listen!

World come aliveAs I started my new career at the age of nearly 52 as a Genesis Transformation coach, I found that several of my clients decided to ‘take a break’ from coaching.   I also experienced a pretty intense detox which put me under the weather for several week.  It would be easy for me to go into the fear mode again of losing clients or not being ‘enough’ but I took this message from the universe as one in which I needed to heal.  Heal my body, brain and heart from the years of corporate stress, lay low and experience BEing, not DOing a bunch of activities just to fill the time.  I will admit this has not been the easiest thing to do but thankfully there is knitting!

We are all put on this earth for a purpose.  Do you know what your purpose is?  I plan to continue writing about my journey over the next year in hopes that I can teach, inspire and empower YOU to explore your true worldly purpose.
