With January under our belt (can you even believe it?) What an ideal time to explore the synergy between heartbreak and happiness. You might think they are opposites, but you’re about to receive some powerful questions that will help you uncover what matters most to you.
One of my favorite quotes by Joseph Campbell is “The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure that you seek.” As a society that does everything possible to avoid uncomfortable emotions, it’s no wonder why so many of us feel lost and without a compass. That’s all about to change. What if I told you that noticing what gives you goosebumps is as important as sitting with your deepest grief? If you want to know why you were put on earth, pay attention to what moves you the most and you’ll have the secret to your greatest joy!
I say grab a journal and your favorite hot beverage and let’s get started. C’mon, let’s do this together! Embark on the journey of self-discovery, by writing whatever comes to your heart and mind as you reflect on:
- What lights up my heart?
- What breaks my heart?
- What is worth fighting for?
- What do I truly enjoy?
- Who do I admire & what qualities do I admire most about them?
- When was a time I felt valued, appreciated, and truly seen, and heard by another?
- In whose presence do I feel deeply and authentically connected?
- What do others tell me I’m especially gifted at?
- How can I use my gifts and skill sets to meet a need of the world?
I can’t wait to hear…What did you discover? For me, having a deep sense of purpose is what fuels me to overcome my fears and inspires me to take risks and make an even bigger impact in the world. It’s the difference between hitting snooze versus jumping out of bed, excited to see what the day will bring! For me, purpose is woven into the fabric of our everyday life. It’s in the small, intentional choices we make, as well as the broader impact we have on our communities and the world.
As the theme of the upcoming World Happiness Summit in London suggests, purpose is the key to unlocking a life filled with joy, wellbeing, and contentment. I hope you will join me and many others to deepen this journey towards aligning your heart, your actions, and your life’s work to that which lights you up! Your energy and your being are contagious. It’s time to surround yourself with a tribe of fellow souls seeking true passion, purpose, and impact!

“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
