I feel like as humans we are pre-disposed to want a life of purpose. We want our lives to mean something, to leave a legacy, to make a mark. Last year I was able to quit a job that I hated and truly commit to what I love–travel planning and homeschooling my loves. My purpose began to surface as I made new friends, built an incredible village and connected on a deeper level with my children and my husband.
Something happens in your soul when you are released from the monotony of the 9-5 job and you have the ability to work for yourself and teach your children what you think they need to know to be purposeful and live a meaningful life. Last year, I found my strength, revalidated my purpose, prioritized my goals and created new ones.
Work is meaningful. What you do, and how you spend your days -is meaningful. Some people find their meaning outside of work through extra activities, fun family events and vacations and that is perfect too.
What are you going to do this year to find and execute your purpose? What have you done already?
Stay tuned for next weeks post in our Word a Week series for 2018.
