Week 20 - Find your purpose

How did I do with last week's change?

Week 18: Raise your heart rate
Doing okay with this one thanks to TaeKwon-Do

Week 19: Eat fruit
2 fruit every day?  No problem!

The Change: Find your purpose in life and live it everyday.

This week is a very deep, introspective challenge.  To help us delve into things, here are some suggested questions we can ask ourselves:

1)What do you want? When I look back on my life when I am 70 or 80, what do I want to see? What do I want that children to think of me? What do I want my grandchildren to think of me? If I did, what would my eulogy say, what would people say about me? What in my life would bring me the most pleasure, fulfillment and make me most content and satisfied?

2)What are your passions? Thing that bring me joy and happiness, things I do out of love and not guilt and with no need for recognition.

3)What are your strengths? What do I do best? What are my talents? What do I do really well?

4)What matters to you? If I had to attach myself to a cause, what would it be? Is there something that creates a fire in my belly?

Wow.... the good thing is that our host is away next week so we have 2 weeks to work on this change.  I've been reading the questions over and tossing some answers around in my head, but I'm going to need some more time before I can put anything together in real words.  Stay tuned.
