It's all part of the ride.

This season is a time for renewal; when I was young and growing up, I found myself asking these questions over and over again, 
  • Who am I? 
  • What do I want out of live? 
  • How am I going to get it and what am I prepared to sacrifice to get it?
But I just want to be clear those questions don't have a magical answer that unlocks the secret to living happily ever after.  If they did we would all be rich, happy and living life to the fullest, wouldn't we?  

I realized that these questions were only tools that we could use to help us find a purpose, a mission or meaning in what we do. They help us explain why we think we need to do what we are doing. These questions are not ones that you answer only once. They are questions you ask over and over again and each time they are asked, you may find you answer them differently, and that is all right.  

As we go through different phases of our lives and because we are constantly shifting, growing and evolving we need to ask ourselves these questions again and again. By the way, when I thought I had all three answers, life threw me a curve ball, one of which I have shared with you for the few months. 

As a result, I am in the process of having to to rethink my answers.

So don't worry if you sometimes feel like you don't have it all figured out. None of us really do, so enjoy searching for the answers and remember  it is all part of the ride.
