Written while walking in the woods to identify my life's purpose. I wanted to know is there more to life than what I was doing.
I used to be one who packed my days to the brim with one activity after another. These can be work, spending time with the children, family, friends, or running errands, etc. I didn't really have time for reflection. After all, a busy day is a productive day. However, there were many times I didn’t feel fulfilled even though I had accomplished a ton of work. I asked myself, "how could that be possible?" After all, I had a very productive day. Then I realised that I didn’t take time to listen to what my heart wanted. I was driven by results and went with the flow of busy-ness. I wasn’t in tune with my own inner voice.
