Deciding on My Purpose


Hi Coaches! This is my second August in Scholars and, much like last year, I am indulging in a bit of indecision when it comes to choosing my purpose. Publishing my book, taking over the newspaper I freelance for when my editor retires, building my own business,….my head hurts! HOWEVER, this year I am onto myself, so in the interest of simplifying (and following Brooke’s advice), I asked myself, what do I want to do? What I want to do is create something that is uniquely me through my writing. I’ve lived so long in that dreaded “Comparison World,” where everybody else’s writing, blog posts, Instagram pictures, etc. are better than mine, making me not want to put anything out into the world. The thing is, I do want to put myself out there, I’m just scared and uncomfortable but holding back expressing myself hasn’t felt good either. I can’t create what other people create but they can’t create what I can. So my purpose is to focus on what I can create and have fun doing just that, trusting that it will lead me where I’m meant to go. Any helpful bridge thoughts/suggestions to guide me through this?
Thanks!
