dear life purpose – I’m looking for you!

today [J] & I took the train into the city.
[after making an iced coffee pit stop, obviously].


we didn’t go for the “biking & beaching” this time. even though that would have been enjoyed. this time was for business. or rather the [sincere] hope for business.

what I thought would be just another interview …turned into a conversation resulting in a lot of excitement & a sense of direction.

what I’ve learned most about myself during this job scavenger search is: I am scatterbrained. I feel as though I’m good at many things and enjoy many things. but where does my passion, and my drive stem from? basically I want to locate my “life purpose” and quick. thankfully has been an eye opener/great place to kick off my search.


the next two days [while I’m dog-sitting for a friend] my goal is to work on pinpointing me. from my favorite color to what makes me tick.

I’m praying for a bright, over-sized light bulb to go off.

how do you discover your passion? your life purpose? what makes you get out of bed each day? [any tips, advice, or wise words are welcome with open arms!]

oh happy wednesday hump day all.

    Erin, thank you for your comment! I agree, you can learn a lot about yourself when you’re standing at a fork in the road. I think the hardest part of this whole process for me is wanting to be settled into my new life in Chicago. Being fresh off a move from New York, I wanted to begin the adjustment process right then & there. [J] & I getting an apartment was put on pause until I found a job, which added a lot more pressure + stress. I could not be more thankful for [J]’s family who is letting us ‘crash’ with them until we get on our feet, but we’re ready to REALLY BEGIN chapter chicago. Thank you again for the comment. I appreciate it :)

    I was unemployed for 6 months and learned a whole lot about myself. I think time by yourself, doing things you love leads you to your passions. At least it did for me. I took advantage of the time and tried to do what made me happy.
