Claiming the Life You Were Meant To Live

BY: SusanD

I'm a former super-pleaser. I used to make decisions by asking other people "what do you think?" Then a friend gave me the book by Martha Beck. It taught me the difference between being my essential self; the true 'me' and my social self; the 'me' that lives to please others.

I am thinking of a career transition, it's a habit of mine. This book is helping me find my life's true calling. Better still, it demands that I lead the life I am meant to live. Beck writes with a wry sense of humor that had me laughing out loud one minute, and crying the next. It's an emotional read. I found I was not alone when reading this book.

I traveled on this journey of personal and professional discovery with my inner child. She encouraged me to change the way I make decisions and patted me on the back saying, "Yes, I recognize the true you." I recommend this book as a way to start on your own journey. You too, will welcome your true self, home again.

Road Map

Today I feel lost,
so I turn to You for direction.
My heart is a compass.
Set me to true north.
Lead me where I need to go.

Be my guide.
Take me with you,
for you know the roads.
I know the climb will be arduous.
But when I get there,
oh, the view will be worth it!

"Are you living the life you were meant for?"

Sometimes we see clearly how they work, but most of the time, we don't understand the obvious ways we are supported. We forget that the angels are always there, always available, always willing, and always working for us. end quote
