I spent years agonizing over finding my soul’s purpose, with an unspoken (and maybe unconscious) belief that, once I found it, small cartoon woodland creatures would appear and sing to me as I began my happily ever after.
So, so not how it went.
I always thought finding your purpose was the holy grail, that all things would pale in comparison to this. It was the driving reason behind so much of my “healing journey” – the belief that I needed to be emotionally well in order to find my true calling. Which, as it happened, was true for me…but by that point I didn’t care quite as much! I had already found what I think of as the true happily every after – emotional well-being. Finding my purpose was icing on the cake.
I’d love for you to have a more relaxed version of your journey to finding your purpose, so when Caroline Van Kimmenade of thehappysensitive.com invited me to chat about purpose on her podcast, I jumped at the chance.
(I also jumped at it because talking with Caroline is pure fun. We can chat for hours without noticing time passing, and the podcast reflects that, clocking in at about an hour and forty minutes!)
Caroline helps people go from highly sensitive to happy sensitive, and also helps empaths stop suffering with other people’s energy and embrace their gifts. Talking with her is a pure delight – she’s funny, spiritual, and completely real. I studied her blog long before meeting her, as she has created an incredible collection of articles helping HSPs/empaths in real, tangible, actionable ways.
