My Purpose Brought Me Here

purpose path

Welcome!

Two years ago, when I was 23, I hired life coach, Christine Faucher-Kelley, founder of Luminance Coaching. It was just over a year since I had graduated from college, and I was feeling stuck. I had always felt that there were big things I wanted to do with my life, but I wasn’t sure what those things were. (I had given up on my lifelong dream to pursue a singing career a couple years prior to this, and I was NOT loving the corporate environment I had slipped into due to the sheer need to generate income and begin merging into adult life. *Vomits*)

Yes, in an overwhelming world full of endless options, not knowing what you want to do with the rest of your life at age 23 is not too shocking these days. I could accept that. But I wasn’t okay with not knowing how to articulate what I felt I was brought into this world to contribute. Having always been a self-help junkie, I knew that I had to determine the overall “what” and “why” before I could figure out the specific “how”. I knew I first had to understand my life’s purpose, what I felt the world needed me for, in order to create my most fulfilling life.

Through lots of listening, gentle nudging, and asking some pretty powerful questions, Christine did end up helping me come to realize my life’s purpose: I believe I am here to bring more love, peace, and positivity into the world in a fun, inspiring way. Hey, it might be cheesy, but it’s the truth!

I’ll get into explaining why I feel my purpose is what it is in another post, but for now, just know that it’s lead me to want to create this blog as one way of carrying it out.

So what’s the blog going to be about?

Setting aside my perfectionist qualities for once, I’m sort of just diving in here. I’m not 100% sold on the name which is why I do not have a .com for it. I haven’t designed the layout exactly how I want it. I’m not even entirely sure yet about the content structure, but I’m fairly certain it will contain the following:

  • My thoughts, observations, stories and questions regarding happiness, confidence, spirituality and other life topics
  • Tips from my own experience on how to celebrate and live one’s best life
  • Self-improvement book reviews
  • Powerful quotes
  • Poetry
  • Heck, might even throw in some video clips of me singing, simply because singing gives me joy!

The blog will be honest. It will be open. It will probably be kind of funny. It will not, however, be preachy. I’m a positive person, but I’m not someone who pretends to be happy every second and force-feeds New Age philosophies like some Stepford zombie.

I just believe in a cosmic consciousness. I believe that if more people radiated love, if more of us felt confident and happy within ourselves, treated others with kindness and respect more often, learned to view the world in an overall positive light, and realized that we can ALL shine at the same time, the world would change for the better. The more of us who do this, the more noticeable the change will be.

I would love the blog to be as interactive as possible, so your comments are completely encouraged! All I ask is that you do as Aretha would and keep it respectful. 😉

Talk soon!

Peace, love, and glamour,

Rika
