When the Going Gets Tough

I had breakfast with a dear friend yesterday. We talked about a lot of stuff. We talked about our relationships and our jobs (mine is the unpaid kind). We talked about getting older and the changes that brings. And we talked about how at some point in our lives, we are faced with something we … Continue reading When the Going Gets Tough

The Myth of Finding Your Purpose by Kris Carr

I've written about life purpose on this blog before (here, here and here). As time has passed, I've come to believe that our individual life purpose is more about really getting to know ourselves, uncovering our gifts and sharing them with others.
