I remember when I first stumbled onto a blog all about “finding your purpose.”
At the time, I was no longer happy on the career path I was pursuing, which was being a comedian in New York City.
It was a really confusing feeling. Suddenly I just didn’t want to do shows, I didn’t care about auditions, and being onstage didn’t excite me in the same way it had before.
It felt like a breakup.
I missed the passion I felt for comedy. I wanted to feel it again, for something else!
So, the idea that there was this purpose out there that I just needed to “find” gave me hope.
But after several years, the search for my purpose left me feeling like I was constantly trying to chase a carrot.
It felt like this whole idea of “purpose” was a marketing ploy… Or maybe just something other people get to experience.
So, when Kristen Domingue reached out to me the other day, and told me about her upcoming webinar about purpose, I was a little on the fence about sharing it.
Because I wondered: Is purpose even something that is figure-out-able?
I kept hearing this little voice that said, “You should interview Kristen for BlueTV!” And, she was up for it.
Our conversation ended up answering a LOT of questions for me about purpose…
and even giving me more clarity about mine.
Which feels REALLY freakin good.
Here’s some of what we covered in the interview:
- why purpose isn’t something to “find”
- what it means when you lose passion for the work you’re doing
- what purpose has to do with relationships beginning and ending
- how to recognize the signs about life purpose
Kristen is helping people dive deeper into this for themselves in her One Life, One Purpose program.
