“The paths are many, the truth is one.”
I believe that we’re all trying to ultimately get to the same place: happiness. It’s why we work, it’s why we toil, it’s why we learn, it’s why we seek fulfilling and supportive relationships. But we all don’t take the same path. For one reason or another, our path toward happiness can look different than even our closest friend’s. And sometimes… quite often in our culture, we lose the plot entirely. We get caught up in the rat race of our lives and forget the very reason we are living. When we reach this state (which all of us do at some point), it can be disorienting.
In my own life, I’ve felt like I didn’t know where I was. Everything was dark and I could not find my path forward. I’d try something over here. I’d try something over there. Nope, not that either. I think this is normal for someone in their twenties, but as I proceeded into my 30s, I really needed a clearer vision. I stopped thinking about how I was going to get to happiness and got really clear on what happiness even means to me. It wasn’t about what job I was going to go to next, but instead getting really clear on my sense of fulfillment and reverse-engineering my happiness from there. I did this with the help of a counselor who compassionately held space for my frustrations and entertained my fantasies. I was able, in that moment, to see my path clearly.
As a Coach, I help people of all ages, roles, identities, creeds, and backgrounds to identify these blocks and compassionately move through them. Sometimes this involves lifestyle changes, aided by mindfulness and meditation, and other times it involves going to the block itself and understanding where it came from.
