Are you still searching for your purpose in life? Feeling like you are just going through the motions of day to day life and really want to find your purpose so you can wake up feeling energised to be?
Please read on. What I am about to share with you is pretty simple and it was a total hallelujah moment for me.
Seriously, imagine goosebumps, angels singing, butterflies everywhere, got the picture?
This is how it started, I had been on my mission to find my passion and purpose in life because I felt like there was so much more to life than what I was currently experiencing. I did the usual that anyone in my stage of their journey would and brought a stack of self help books, enrolled in a couple of online courses, surfed a lot, went to inspirational workshops and seminars, and then read some more.
In one of the courses I did i had to do a vision board. It was huge because I like to dream big. It’s what I always taught my students to do.
I was doing well shredding bad habits and replacing them with healthy ones and getting some good routine and consistency going. I was starting to feel excited again.
And then four days out from my big paddle event I had been training for, while at the gym I completely ruptured (tore) my achilles tendon.
You would think I would be beside myself (especially when my trainer said to me “you got a good change of gold at this event huh”) but I wasn’t. I was surprisingly cool, calm and collected. I had been working on being more present you see so when this happened I immediately surrendered to what was going on and it gave me the head space to do what I needed to do with clarity. Without panicking I managed to organise the proper care I needed and a good team around of professionals to sort my rehab.
In the couple of days following my injury I had my race I had been preparing for. Many thought I would not do it but something deep inside me was telling me I could. I felt strong and invincible. I was lying on my couch and looked up at my vision board that I had brought out to the living room to remind me of my dreams. Right in the centre of my board I had glued a pair of eyes and surrounding them I had the words time, shine, evidence and courage.
That was when it hit me. All this time I had been searching elsewhere, externally for my purpose when what I needed to do was look within, at me. I knew right away I was the key, who I am and choose to show up as daily. I knew it was time to step forward into the light and shine. The evidence was right there staring back at me, and seeing this gave me the courage to do so.
Since then I have made it my priority to show up as me first and only me. Yes there have been challenges, but its all learning. And its helped me to be more aware of where I spend my energy and what supports my growth as a human being across my whole wellbeing. I now know what my purpose is and its most likely the same as yours, to show up daily as your true-self and speak your truth because when we do this it creates space for others to do the same and that is how we lift the wellness and healing of our world. And I do this through living my passions of family, business, surfing, paddling, martial arts, rongoa maori, weaving, because that is where my creativity shines and my energy grows and it helps me to be the best version of me so that I can help others to be their best.
When we do what we love we shine.
When we shine, time does not matter.
The evidence is all around you,
Have the courage to acknowledge it.
