This is the time of year when high school graduation celebrations are being planned, seniors all over the country are preparing for their next step and parents are beginning to see their lives with one less child to take care of every day.
So what’s next?
For some it is about following a pre-prescribed path that was laid out for them by parents, mentors, culture or society.
Others will begin a quest to answer some of the bigger questions about life. Questions like: Who am I? What do I value? What is my purpose? My vision? My dream? How will I fulfill it? What’s next?
For others it will be about both.
For many of us, the bigger questions came later in life; after our formal education, career, marriage, family, major purchases. For many of us those questions are prompted after a life changing event, such as divorce, job loss, illness, financial difficulty, etc. It is often during those difficult times that we are challenged to go deep within, beyond the noise of our day to day lives, to the core of who we really are, to our connection with a greater source, to what we truly believe, why we’re really here and what we'd like to accomplish in this life.
For many of us, it is often about looking back over the course of our lives to see the patterns and cycles that hold us back, the beliefs that limit us and the environments that cause us to make choices that don’t serve our greatest good.
Life is about exploring.
But why do many of us wait so long to discover who we really are and to answer the bigger questions? Why not begin to explore those questions before we choose our careers, our partners, our life path? Why not make those choices based on our values and our purpose?
