Life Purpose Oracle Card Spread
Once I let go of the need to live my life the way I thought I was expected to live it, things in my life automatically fell into place. And soon, without even realizing it I was embracing my life purpose.
What about you? Are you living in giving in a way that honors your passion and joy; or are you merely contributing to someone else’s joy because you believe that’s what you must do?
What do I mean? Let me give you an example. My parents wanted successful children so they emphasize the value of a college education in order to live a successful life. Success to both of my parents meant a prestigious career that provided a high paying salary. Long story short, although I had other career aspirations I chose to cater to my parents expectations and entered law school.
It wasn’t until several years later that I realized I chose my career path to please my parents. I didn’t dislike my chosen career, it was just that I knew that there was something more out there for me instead of being tied to my legal career twenty four hours, seven days per week. Something was obviously missing.
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” ~ Steve Jobs
