How to Make a Better You – Quest for Purpose and Meaning
By Nina Sabin - Healthy Tip
I have been on a quest to truly understand my purpose in life. We all ask the questions: What am I here? What is my purpose? in the past two years, we moved two times, unexpectedly had to leave our home, community, jobs, and friends for almost 17 years in Saudi, lived for a year in a half in a college apt. with our daughter, and now found our perfect home. But even with all those exciting and good changes doesn't keep us from having struggles. During the last four months I have struggled with episodes of depression. I thought I had beat my depression and that I would never spiral again. I went two years with total joy and no real struggles. As I turned 50 this year, my female cycle is now going out of whack, which has affected my hormones, which in turn affects the chemicals in my brain. But I don't want to allow that to stop me from experiencing true peace, joy, and fulfillment in my life. That is why I am on the quest to avoid spiraling again, and to understand who I really am and why I am here. This starts with understanding my personal relationship with God. Therefore, as many of you know I have become a healthy life coach and as I have been on that journey I have learned a lot about myself, what I need, and I realize it all starts with my personal relationship with God. He is showing me how important it is to start that my day with Him and to experience His presence throughout the day no matter what obstacles may come my way, I am not alone, and I can still experience peace and joy. My goal is to share my findings with you who are too seeking for your purpose and fulfillment. I am doing this through my healthy tips articles on our website - the first one is called New Year - Fresh Start - https://www.focusonfreedoms.com/post/how-to-make-a-better-you-new-year-fresh-start I have also started a Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/focusonfreedoms and a Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/131040544383560/ for Focus on Freedoms. I hope you will check it out and join. Each day in the Focus on Freedoms Facebook Group I will try to share the insights I receive as I spend time in God's presence (my quiet time). I hope you will check it out and also share anything thoughts or feelings you may be having. I believe this is God's plan for my life, He wants everyone to know Him and experience His love in their lives. Romans 14:11 states: It is written: "'As surely as I live,' says the Lord, 'every knee will bow before me; every tongue will acknowledge God.'"(NIV) Don't you want too to experience God, His love, and His Presence in your life. Today is the day to make a new and fresh start. I will be praying for you. Hugs and Blessings!
