"I am here for a purpose and that purpose is to grow into a mountain, not to shrink to a grain of sand. ~Og Mandino
So many women have the burning desire to know what their purpose is. As a matter of fact, I was one of those women years ago. I just knew there was some reason I was here; I sensed there was a greater purpose and vision for my life than I was living but I couldn’t see what it was. I read books, I took classes, I attended seminars, I took all of the personality quizzes (well, I still do that), and I even asked the opinions of others.
When I looked around me, it didn’t seem like other women were questioning their purpose. It seemed to me they were content, confident, and happy. I just knew there was a missing piece to my life and I couldn’t figure out what it was!!! I felt like there was something wrong with me.
On the surface, my life looked wonderful. I had a good job and I was successful and respected at work. I was a homeowner. I was involved in community activities as well as the PTA and a leadership council for the elementary school my daughter attended.
And yet, something was missing. I was filling up my time with activities trying to find the thing that lit me up (or maybe I was just being busy so I wouldn’t have time to get even more discouraged because I wasn’t feeling fulfilled, but was just going ‘through the motions.’)
Have you ever felt that way? Do you currently feel that way?
