Can your troubles help you find purpose in life?
Last week, we talked about focusing on your soul’s purpose in order to stay balanced during life’s ups and downs. But what if you don’t know what your purpose is? Likely, you’ll find it in your troubles.
Let’s transcend your troubles by leveraging them to find purpose. Times of turmoil are fertile grounds for discovering purpose because by experiencing what you don’t want, you can clarify what you do want and are more motivated to get it.
Unfortunately, this opportunity is often missed because the ego fixates on our suffering, ruminates on what we don’t want, and becomes wistful about the past.
Rather than engaging our soul to springboard from our troubles into a meaningful life by envisioning a positive future, our ego wants to spiral us deeper into despair. Instead, engage your soul to focus on what you want. Recall a time that you or someone you know transcended an obstacle by turning it into an opportunity. Use that memory to inspire you to do the same.
So what does all this have to do with Soul’s Home®? The foundation of Soul’s Home® is knowing your short term or long–term purpose so you can set up your home to help you live that purpose.
I hope you’ll be able to leverage your troubles to find meaning and create a home that supports you in living a meaningful life. If you want help finding meaning in your life and in your home, check out the link to the Soul’s Home® Alignment DIY.
Next time we’ll ask, “Is your home an investment?”. Until next week, I wish you well on your journey.
