What's Going On!
So. For the past year I've been "recovering" from a long-term emotionally abusive relationship. During this time I have been slowly rediscovering who I am. I feel like I am in the final stages of this process, which is awesome, but one thing is going on that I can't shake.
It has to do with life purpose. For the longest time I thought that I was destined to be a storyteller. Many things in the past have pointed to this BUT during the past three months something has been happening.
It has one way or another put itself into my life everyday for the last three months. It shows up in the weirdest places. Sometimes the message is subtle and other times it is hitting me over the head.
I am pretty positive that the universe is trying to push me toward a career in yoga. The big problem I am having is one of letting go.
When I start to develop plans to follow this new path I have wonderful dreams that indicate a new, wonderful beginning but I also have this feeling of great mourning. I know that I'm mourning the loss of the person I could have been. I'm finding really difficult to let this go because as far back as I can remember I was doing things that was leading me towards a storytelling career.
I understand that it isn't your career that makes you who you are but a career represents something so much more than a paycheck to me. My life work will influence many, many people.
With that being said.
Has anyone here dealt with a complete change in your purpose/destiny?
How did you cope with it?
If you felt the same sense of loss I did I'm curious about how you let go.
I'm filled with many different emotions about this. Sorry, I'm not trying to sound all angsty about the situation.

Well maybe yoga can help you with your dreams of story telling? I no longer see lack or limitation - - but only endless possibilities. Yoga is obviously your passion, since it shows up at odd times as you say. Basically you're a powerful creator and the universe will give you anything you ask within due time.
I personally always just wanted to be of help to others. I took on the responsibility once of "changing the world." But soon realized that it's not my job, and people want freedom to choose whatever it is they like. I created a website detailing all the dangers, only to be rejected and laughed at. This did change my career direction - but never my passion! I still have a strong desire to help people, but now more so in a freedom of choice sense.
But I dearly believe Yoga could help you with story telling.
