LIST 50 | List some things that bring purpose to your life.
I wake every morning with a drive to show up, contribute and learn. Why?
My (now all adult) children.
My ridiculous sweet dogs.
My friends and family and friends who are family.
My writing – my words and his.
My home – packing up this one and moving to the big yellow house.
My memorial project for Bill.
My creative plans for the year ahead: projects that include jewellery making, trying new-to-me recipes and women’s circles.
My spiritual practice.
“Purpose” is a word I’ve often struggled to wrap my brain around. What is my purpose? For years I have had no idea. I continue to have no idea.
Instead of searching or pre-determining what my purpose is, I’ve decided that at some point my purpose will find me. I live a life for which I am grateful and humbled. I focus my energy on those people and projects listed above.
