Rediscover Your Life’s Purpose

“We are all visitors to this time, this place. We are just passing through. Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love… and then we return home.” ~ Australian Aboriginal Proverb

What is the purpose of my life?
What is the meaning of true fulfillment?
What do I really want?
Why am I really here on this planet?

With the new reality we are all in, where everyday is a blessing and every thing around us is crumbling, thinking about purpose is so imperative. This is a time when all our plans have gone up in the air. Nothing planned makes sense in the wake of the pandemic. Our lives have completely changed and most people are now realising that the way they had been living before this pandemic, was so far away from their true purpose. Its funny how this down time forced by the pandemic has given us all time to rethink our whole life.

So with that in mind, lets dive into rediscovering our true purpose. And yes, our life’s purpose can change and evolve over time too.

As we try and adapt to a new normal in this world which is completely different from what we expected it to be, emotional & mental health is drastically affected. And not in the most positive way.

6 Positively Simple Ways to Heal From Emotional Trauma

“If you are to free your heart, you must embrace your painful feelings, have faith that your thoughts will arise and cease of their accord. They will pass if you can face them head on, with kind eyes. Your thoughts and feelings will dissolve if you don’t try to hold on to them or push them away. Thinking will dissipate. Trust in this universal law of change.” ~ Valerie Mason-John from her book “Detox Your Heart: Meditations for Healing Emotional Trauma”

We are each products of our life experiences. We grow and evolve with every experience we have. Be it a happy experience or a traumatic one.

How to Believe in Yourself & Positively Change Your life

“Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.” ~ Norman Vincent Peale 

Most people will spend their entire life being told that their dreams are something that they can’t do. I was told many such things -> “You can’t play football with the boys!”(I was the only girl in an all boys team for so long), or “How can you become a psychologist?” etc. We all face this at some point in our lives. No one is immune to the negativity of the world. But you can still believe in yourself and change your life.

Do You find it hard to hear everyone around you tell you “You can’t”?
Can’t is such an ugly, often demotivating word. The more times you hear it, the easier it is to believe the lies that are being told. You have to search for a healing way to respond to it. Don’t believe any negative thoughts that people say about what you can’t do, because only you truly KNOW what you can or cannot do! And understand, that people who are negative towards you are often hiding a certain level of their own insecurity behind that “all put together” mask.
