Journey to My Life’s Purpose: November

Posted on November 2, 2014 by


authenticityWhen I left the corporate world behind, I expected some readjustment into my identity but how much, I was not sure.  I knew my ego thrived on the my ability to organize, collaborate with opposing forces and get the job done on time.  I thought that since I had eased into this role as a health coach, I would not feel such a pull or that some of those traits that drove my ego would haunt me.  I have been on this journey to find out who I really be and this past month, I got to see a glimmer of that.

I thought I had to put aside all of the ego’s qualities and find more serene, adaptable or maybe socially acceptable ones.  What I realized after an encounter that left me frustrated and unsettled was that who I be included being organized, committed and doing a job well.  I was trying to put a square peg in a round whole and this was not feeling good to me. 

When I meditated on this, I started to accept my innate qualities and work with them instead of shutting them out.  I came into my voice and I feel more at peace.  I am learning that accepting who I be is not based on what ANYONE else thinks but on me and me alone.  Practicing this truth has created a freedom within and even opportunities that previously have seemed just out of my grasp.  I know  I am on the path to my truth!
