Finding our Seed of Purpose within Service
This pandemic has bred a lot of both uncertainty and depression. For those who are isolated, the feeling of loneliness is amplified. One of the ways I have stayed positive is through my focus on service.
Service to others can cultivate gratitude, empathy, perspective, and compassion. This bouquet of emotions can allow us to feel as if we have a purpose, a meaning to our lives. Services forces us to look beyond ourselves, which can shift our focus. My service is rooted in helping people achieve their holistic health and wellness goals through various avenues. In these endeavors, I'm not focusing on myself and instead, I attach a true meaning to the people's lives I positively affect.
We are truly our worst critic, and it can be easy to cycle through a pattern of negative thought patterns. However, when we devote a piece of our wellbeing to helping others, that negative voice becomes quieter. Over time, the more service and the more gratitude (a superfood!) you cultivate, the more you will silence those negative voices that question your existence.
