Thank you for the welcome, Angela. I find it interesting that you were the first to reply, as I have already been deeply touched by a response you gave someone on an entirely different thread. I am delighted to meet you!
This question... What would a breakthrough look like for me... really struck me. I've been floundering, trying to figure out what my purpose in life is, as there are incongruities between what I think I believe and what I do from day to day. My heart cries to give love, but the rest of me cringes in fear... everyday.
I see myself outside. Spending time in nature - for that has always brought me joy - and also helping others. Acting in compassion, and affecting others' lives in a very real and positive way. Loving myself as well.
I see myself reaching out to enjoy the presence of others, where I normally retreat within myself... eating healthy, losing weight, and feeling vibrant. I see myself overcoming my inertia, and actually having a purpose in life. Feeling my purpose, and living it.
Ah, I would shine!
Envisioning this made me smile... maybe knowing what I want is a step toward making it happen.
