Many times we were caught up in our daily challenges but until we take time to be still and listen to our inner voices, we will never know what brings true joy to us.
I am grateful to my extremely gifted friends, Maryanne Mooney and Janet Goldblatt, for organising a purpose quest retreat in Louisiana in Dec 2018. During that retreat, together with 11 other purpose questers, I realised that I had this deep love for writing poems. I felt so much indescribable joy and self-empowerment from writing for myself and for others. And on that purpose-quest retreat, I wrote this poem.
