How do you find your purpose?
When we go through the loss of our loved one, not only did we lose them but we lost a piece of ourselves, and a lot of the time, it feels like our purpose has been taken away from us.
Today I’m going to be sharing with you 5 tips to find your purpose after a loss.
Tip #1 is to allow yourself to grieve
Allow yourself to feel all emotions and feelings that are showing up for you. As you’ve heard me in other videos, we need to feel to heal, and every single one of us has a different time period to go through the grieving process, so it’s up to you how long it takes for you to get through the beginning stages of your grief.
My next tip is to define, destroy or drive
Will this loss define you, destroy you or drive you?
The choice is entirely up to you, up to us. How do you want to feel after going through this loss? Is it going to destroy your life? Is it going to define you of who you are or is it going to drive you to a greater purpose and to live your life fully? What would your loved one want for you right now that has a transition?
Believe it or not, they are here right beside you; every single step of the way, they’re there guiding your path, they’re there watching you. What would they want for you right now? How would they want to see you live?
My next tip is what will you choose?
What will you choose for yourself?
Are you going to decide that this loss is going to define you, it is going to destroy you or is going to drive you? You know, we go through the loss of a loved one, there are so many different feelings that come up, and for myself, I could’ve let my mother’s loss destroy me or define me, but I let it drive me to be doing what I’m doing now today.
So the choice is completely up to you. We are all the creators of our lives. We create our reality; our thoughts create things. You are the commander of your life, so the choice is up to you and nobody else. We can’t look outside of ourselves to be happy, we need to look within ourselves, and we need to make a choice internally, within us.
My next tip is to ask yourself what do you need to be happy?
What would that look and feel like for you to be happy? Would you be living in alignment, would you feel at ease, would things flow, would you feel connected to your loved ones spiritually? What do you need to be happy? Do you need to reach out and help somebody else? What is it exactly that you need to be happy and feel that happiness internally?
My next tip is to create a sense of purpose
Every single one of us here on this planet is here for a reason; we are all here on purpose.
We need to look within ourselves and to follow our hearts. What is your passion in life? When we discover what our true passion is in life, it helps us create a sense of purpose and meaning and fulfillment, helps us feel whole again.
When we go through the loss of a loved one, we have like this missing piece in our hearts, and it’s discovering what we need to fill that missing piece so we can feel true purpose and happiness again, and if you don’t know what your purpose is, that is totally okay; you’re on a journey, everyone is different, and it takes some time to find that purpose.
When we go through loss in our lives, it gives us an opportunity to open up a door of self-discovery where we can live fully on purpose.
