You’re an Effin’ Miracle!

I never realized what it took to create human beings. Then I had two! The fact that our bodies can make these humans is a flipping gift — a true miracle! I will never take that for granted knowing how challenging it has been for some friends and women these days. Let me first expand on the swearing; I don’t swear often yet people need to know (awaken!) to the fact that YOU ARE A MIRACLE. That is not a story I’m making up. It is a fact. Please hear this on full volume: “You are a miracle”.

Did you know that the chances of you being born when you were 1:400,000. — Mel Robbins

Know the odds and how special it is that you are right here, right now — we must dive into how the heck you will spend your one, wild and precious life. Finding your life’s purpose begins with embracing who you are: your unique qualities, the talents you bring with you everywhere and anywhere and your voice that speaks out when you feel called. To find these unique qualities that are innate in you, you must first listen, get attuned with yourself and then let your intuition take over. Simon Sinek shares: “Discovering your WHY is like panning for gold in the river of the past: the gold is there, lost in the debris of the river, hidden by rushing water. Only when you take the time to pan for the significant moments of the past, retrieving them nugget by nugget, will they turn into treasure.”

What stops us are words like should, could, would or try, and any of those self-sabotaging voices that limit us. We may wake up feeling inspired, clear and ready to take on our purpose in a big way: enter the shoulds and the voices that tell us we can’t or say who are you to do that or to be that? — and it’s game over. We hear that and shut down.

This process is a daunting one and for those that choose to embark on this journey, it is a beautiful road ahead. We all believe we don’t need purpose everyday until we wake up and realise it’s the only thing that matters. Aligning our days with purpose and our core values is what fulfilment is made of; it is these days that make up our best life.

May I be so bold to say that we all have purpose. We all can live with purpose. Fulfilment is around the corner, only when you’re ready to see it.

My top three ways to find it are below. Join me on this journey — take 30 minutes with your journal and play. Explore different ways to access your Miraculous Life’s Purpose —

  1. Resources | What books can you get your hands on to read about purpose? To study this topic means to get curious, be studious, write about it, research it and talk about it with everyone who will listen. We think we don’t have time for this and it’s a “nice to do” except this is the focus; this is the main topic if you choose it to be.
  2. Journal time | Answer these questions: a) What would you do if you had all the money, time and resources? b) What lights you up? Another way to put this is if you could make a difference in the world, what would it be or what would you create? c) If you were getting an award, what would the plaque say?
  3. Think BIG!!! | Believe it’s possible, let nothing stop you. Write down 10 ideas you have that feel like they use all of your talents, beliefs, ethics and skills without judgment and then pick your top 3. You get to have one of them — what idea do you keep?
  4. Don’t do it alone. | I would be remiss if I didn’t let you know that finding a coach to support you in this work would be extremely helpful.

You know where to find me if you want to jam on these ideas. And if you feel inspired, please share this too.

With Love + Miracles,
