Have you ever been asked, “What is your passion?” or “What motivates you to get out of bed every day?” or as my husband always asks, “How do you make a difference in the world every day?” I particularly like the third question because it causes people to pause and reflect. Some answer quickly, but many fumble.
I know the fumbling all too well; I struggled to answer that question for years. Most days I went to my corporate-type job knowing, feeling, that intrinsic value was missing.What I did never felt important – the people were definitely important so I put my focus on them – but the work in many ways felt meaningless.
After years of frustration and sincerely seeking God for my personal passion and drive, He placed Discovering Me on my heart as my expression of making a difference in the world every day.
I have always cared deeply for people. I want to soothe their pain, dry their tears, be a listening ear, be a shoulder to lean on, give an encouraging word, or my personal favorite, cause an eruption of laughter. To be able to do so as an occupation seems impossible, right? Not with God.
Now when I am asked what I do, I can say with confidence that I am passionate about Discovering Me and the doors of opportunity God will open along the way to help women discover the truth about who they are!
At the launch of Discovering Me I wrote a blog, Time to Discover Me, that shared my “why”. That “why” continues to grow and evolve, and the fire God lit within my heart to reach women with truth burns stronger every day.
So let me ask, “How do you make a difference in the world every day?” I would love to hear your story. Please comment below. And if you don’t know how you make a difference, I hope through my writing and speaking engagements I can help you answer this question. I promise you are making a difference every day – you just aren’t able to see it.
