Realizing Your Purpose

Many of us have had the experience, at some point in our lives, of feeling rudderless. Perhaps it’s because of a life event: the loss of a loved one, the loss of a job or financial means or dealing with the physical and emotional toll of an illness. Sometimes, this leads to a moment of clarity where we understand that the life event took away our purpose.

Relieving Emotional Moments

Sometimes, we languish in our thoughts. We ruminate over things that have happened. We imagine possible pasts that never took place. We are emotional beings. We can feel happy, confident, trusting, and generous.
