The First Step to Finding Your Purpose
"When we find ourselves devoid of passion and purpose, the first thing we need to do is stop. But that's not easy. The rest of the world is zooming by at full speed. Left alone with ourselves, without a project to occupy us, we can become nervous and self-critical about what we should be doing and feeling. This can be so uncomfortable that we look for any distraction rather than allowing ourselves the space to be as we are." --Dawna MarkovaHave you ever traveled with someone who refused to stop and ask for directions, no matter how far off-course you were? If so, you know how frustrating and time-consuming it can be to keep driving in circles.
So why do we think it's a waste of time to stop and get our bearings as we travel through life?
It's okay, even essential, to stop when you feel lost. After all, you cannot get where you want to go if you don't know where you are.
"It is in vain that you rise up early and go late to rest, eating the bread of anxious toil; for he gives sleep to his beloved." --Psalm 127:2
