I believe that knowing your purpose in life can bridge the gap between depression and ultimate happiness. Unfortunately, our purpose isn’t written for us on our birth certificate; so it can take decades of being alive before we start to understand why we’re here.
Some people might not believe in all of this kind of stuff, but I’m quite a philosophical and deep thinker. I believe we were all placed on the planet for a reason, and through experiences, both good and bad, we begin to understand what that reason is.
It wasn’t until I recovered from anorexia that I began to understand my purpose, and now its something I live by.
My purpose is to help women change the way they think about themselves and to help people understand that they are never alone.
Since discovering my purpose, my life has kinda changed for the better. I’ve developed more self-belief and haven’t been afraid to show the world who I am. I’ve felt clear on the message I want to spread, and my vision for the future.
Now, I don’t want you to think that I live every day in a purposeful way because I don’t. Since transitioning from Personal training, there have been days I’ve woken up and been hit with a wave of sadness. I’ve not really known what the heck I’m doing, or if I’m doing enough to really make a change in the world. In those moments, I take deep breathes and reflect on the difference I’ve made thus far, and usually, I set myself a little challenge or project to help me feel like I’m progressing.
Do you ever feel stuck? or a little bit lost? Or maybe you’re suffering from depression right now. I urge you to have a think about what you value most, What you’re most passionate about and what sets your soul on fire. In thinking about those three things, you might just find your purpose.
