End of the Year Reflection
Making Lasting Transformation In Your Life Requires Discovering What Lights You Up And Gives Your Life Purpose
As we get closer to the end of the year, it’s a great time to reflect back on what has been working for you in your life and what hasn’t.
Are you looking for more connection, more purpose, more passion, more abundance in your life? Have you been trying different things, different approaches, but aren’t making the progress you’d like to see?
A couple of years ago, I thought I had a handle on my inner life. I had escaped a bad marriage, overcome some pretty significant personal challenges and was living a great life, but I didn’t realize how far I still needed to go to work past issues from my childhood.
Here I was, living a life of optimism, overcoming setbacks, and progressing successfully. Why did I still feel like something was missing?
Because what was missing was discovering all of what lights me up and missing the connection to my intuition. It didn’t matter how successful I was, how big my house was, or how many hobbies I had. I had changed, but I hadn’t realigned my values or revisited what gives my life purpose.
When a major part of you is unresolved, it’s like walking with a stone in the tread of your shoe. You’re constantly aware of it. What I had forgotten was that as we evolve as people, bits and pieces of us need to be replaced by newer, shinier parts. Once I figured that out and took the steps to find those new, shiny pieces, it was like the world became that much lighter and brighter and I saw all new colors for the first time!
If what you are doing now has left you unfulfilled, there are multiple pieces to this puzzle. Lasting transformation is all about finding the pieces missing for you and learning to find the hidden gold in every obstacle, in every roadblock, in every moment, and most importantly, in yourself.
