Today was the day I realised my truth. The reason I was put on this earth. I have transitioned and grown from one year ago to now. So much has happened, so much soul exploration and all causing me to challenge my true identity.
Identity is a funny thing, what we think we are is not really what we feel we are. You see the ‘thinking’ and the ‘feeling’ are two very different entities. We are drawn to what we feel, not what we think we are, and here’s what I mean…
Have you ever loved doing something and then one day it’s not what you are truly drawn to do? The task becomes so boring and you keep putting it off! I will give you an example, I was trained as a dietitian and loved food and talking about food with people, I loved people, food, and science in that order. Until one day I didn’t. Reading anything on food, shopping for food and even preparing meals became boring as hell, I realised my passion and purpose had evolved as I had grown. The meaning of what fulfilled me had shifted as I invested more and more time in personal development and growth. My new-found love was coaching people to transition back home to their best self! Also, to come home and be aligned to themselves, their true authentic beings.
My purpose has shifted from supporting people to feed their bellies to supporting them to feed their souls. I have always done this in such a beautiful way, but I am only now realising it! My work has always been more about the people than the food.
I love food don’t get me wrong, but it is my love, my passion to serve people that has truly served me and others. That fills my heart with such joy, such love for the human species.
I write this to say it is ok to change your path, your direction, it’s ok to admit that what you think and what you feel are two different entities and when they are miss matched you often feel uncomfortable at best or in real pain at worst. It can manifest itself as addiction or abuse. i.e. over or under eating, alcoholism, drug abuse and sabotaging behaviours. Because you are fighting with yourself. Something is amiss, and you don’t know what. You end up fighting with yourself and your loved ones just through shear frustration. Resulting in relationship issues, work not going right or health taking its toll! All these things are the universe’s way of saying, of screaming out to you… listen!!! What you are doing and spending your time doing is not YOU. The true YOU and your PURPOSE for being on this earth is not what you are doing now. That this way doesn’t fulfil you. It doesn’t float your boat.
Stop and think what is it that you absolutely love to do? That is effortless and completely takes you to a place of ecstasy when you are there and time just flies by. When you are doing it your heart feels like it is singing and the work just flows. Life is so good that people just come to you for your help in this area.
This is called working your passion, serving your purpose. Filling the world with your contribution to mankind. It is actually your duty to mankind to find a way. To release yourself from this pain, free yourself and do what you were put on this earth to do. Be YOU.
