From the beginning I have always known that part of my purpose has been in the service of others. To that end I strive to learn as much as I can and then I share and teach. My main focus is on my spirituality, I am a fiber artist & I write. It keeps me sane, it gives me drive. I have purpose and most days I feel like I'm heading in the right direction. But I meet so many people who are lost and empty inside. My faith gives me hope even in my darkest moments. What fulfills you?

Love of my family fulfills me too. I never found the career path. I travelled one road for a bit and when it branched off I followed that one for 10 years and so on and so on. So don't be too hard on yourself. It will come with time. Thanks. Dee
Beautiful. I feel like I am in a similar space. I am working towards being a better person. I think maturity helps us start to dismiss the need for the approval of others. Thank you. Dee
Working on myself took a priority in my life and my soul mate walked in. If had never happened I would have been ok too. An awesome answer. I have learned so much through these answers. Thank you for sharing. XO Dee
I will. You should have put a link so everyone would. And the title (-;
It's individual. At one time in my life I lived to make money, buy things for my child and move up the ladder. I wasn't happy or satisfied. I felt unfulfilled and like something was missing. If you are content then perhaps you are. Dee
Ah, so you mean a fulfilled life, why not say that instead of using a word relatting to reality.
The same thing threw me off Mick S. It was the word choice because in your definition with the question it sounds like you are asking do you think you are working in your purpose.
I was asking both. Living an authentic life encompasses more than one thing and means more than one thing. The point of these questions are to learn from and about one another.
A life that is fulfilling to you. Do you feel empty? Do you feel lost? Are you trying to find out what makes you happy and feel fulfilled. Are you pretending to be someone that you aren't and not living for anything or anyone else but yourself. Dee
I looked up the word authentic in the dictionary: carries a connotation of authoritative certification that an object is what it is claimed to be - is my life what it is - yes -what i am doing now truly makes me happy - i am writing all of the time
AMEN TO THAT!!! I'm telling you...the PEACE and JOY God giiiiives... AMAZING!! Blessings to you SEXY LADY DEE!
Wow that was beautifully said thank you. I hope those kind and truthful words will be said of me also. Dee
