Living Your Purpose Can Be Hard

Have you ever felt like if you were doing what you are meant to be doing, things should flow easily?

Well, I believe that’s bull shit.

Sometimes when you are living your purpose and what you are meant to be doing, it’s not an easy thing.

This week I flew over to visit family in California. We make the trip out every other year and I love seeing all my cousins and their families… 40 people! Only this time I didn’t get to see them. My youngest got sick (like throw up, vomiting, high fever sick) and I stayed home.

I thought… I don’t want to be here! I want to be at Thanksgiving with my family, eating Turkey and Green Bean Casserole. Oh my gosh! We flew all this way in order for me to be here. Grrrrrrr.

Being a parent is rewarding and amazing. I can feel the power of what I am doing… YES, I am meant to be a mom. But at that moment, it didn’t feel like that at all. It felt crappy. I didn’t want to be there with my kid. I wanted to be out enjoying myself.

This made me think, how does this translate into life?

Sometimes I am doing things I am passionate about, things I love, but there are times I feel crummy, things I don’t want to do. This is the same thing.

Life isn’t always flow and beauty. There are times we are doing what we are meant to be doing and it feels hard. If you are in that moment, I want you to know it is totally natural.

It is a myth that living our purpose is supposed to be easy all the time.

So speak it. Write it. Share it. Even though you may LOVE what you are doing, where are the moments it feels difficult?
