I was at work yesterday talking with a coworker about resolutions, goals etc for the new year. She expressed that she feels like she is struggling with an emotion of lack of motivation, unsure where to start, and can't figure out where she wants to be.
"You are Not alone!", I said. I think at some point in life every one has that feeling. Including myself. I've struggled with the "what is my purpose in life?" question and the answer I keep coming back to is helping others, motivate them, and be a guide to greatness.
With that said I continued our conversation with asking her several questions:
1. What makes you happy?
2. What was your favorite job in the past?
3. If you could do what you love everyday, without feeling like its a job, what would you want to do?
4. What is holding you back?
Her relpies made me think on different levels because as I guided her and informed her of multiple opportunities and steps to achieve the goals at a realistic frame for her....I thought to myself, "Blogging makes me happy, it relieves the day to day stress". Then I immediately wiped the dust of my blog and started this post.
My point is, I'm not perfect. I struggle just like any other person but I use these struggles as lessons for everyone else. No one gets a step by step handbook in life and says this is what will happen and this is how you handle it. But if I can reach and help anyone who needs it then I feel it is my responsibility to do so.
My life has provided me with plenty of material and lessons.
Thank you for stopping by and reading.
