I’ve spent the better part of my life trying to determine why the heck I’m here.
Growing up, I didn’t think much about my purpose. Instead, I thought about the things I could explore and do and BE - but never really connected them with anything more than just fun and/or a career.
As a parent, I thought my purpose was to ensure safety and security for my four children - my life revolved around them - their activities, their well-being, their spiritual growth… and then they grew up.
As a professional in higher education, I’ve thought my purpose was to help the students to achieve their goal of obtaining a degree and to develop the staff entrusted to my care.
Then I realized that I had it wrong. All wrong.
I had been focusing on my role, not my purpose.
These are two different things.
When we get caught up in our roles, sometimes it’s easy to lose sight of our purpose. If you’ve lost your sense of purpose, it may feel like this…
You wake up feeling disengaged or apathetic about what you’re doing. You lack joy and excitement about your relationships and/or your work.
You feel like you’re wandering - you’re not sure whether the path you’re on is the one God has for you - you lack fulfillment.
Nothing about your work brings you joy - you just want to make it through the day to go home and collapse on the couch in front of the TV. You work to bring home a paycheck, but nothing about your work excites you.
You feel stuck.
You were made for more, and I can help you rediscover it.
