I have a confession, I am missing my purpose. Yep, I have no clue what it is and have been searching for it for the past 2 years. I think after I got married I have been wrestling with the importance of my existence in this world beyond being a wife. Don’t get me wrong I love my husband but as I have talked about in previous blog entries, I don’t feel like “wife” is the only purpose I have to fulfill in this lifetime.
Now all I feel is wanting, a desire to do something greater. I just don’t know what that greater is. In my last couple of podcast episodes, I was joined by two wonderful life coaches, Dr. Sadi and Tanya J. Miller, but made me think about what I could be doing differently. These are the steps that I am going to take to get back to finding my purpose.
Pray and seek God:
To be honest I am perfectly okay with what is happening right now with the world. Now we all have a chance to see how much wasted time we have during a normal day. I plan to spend my extra time in devotional. I think the best way to find purpose is to immerse yourself in God’s word and conversation with Him. Proverbs 3:5-6 is what I plan to meditate on day and night. I have let the cares of this world direct my path rather than seeking the plans God has for me.
Take my advice:
If you don’t know, last summer I wrote an ebook called The Journey Back to Loving Yourself, published it and then hid it under a rock. Why? I felt like a fraud. I wrote the book describing a process I thought I had mastered, not knowing I would keep returning to that lesson again and again as the circumstances of my life change. So I plan to read and follow the exercises that are in the book to help me see where I am and focus on where I want to be.
Be comfortable with being uncomfortable:
This one is very hard for me. I HATE being uncomfortable. I will problem solve and strategize ways to move away from the discomfort and back into homeostasis. It’s human nature to stay with the status quo, this also causes you to be content with being mediocre, less than who you should be. I need to be okay with this discomfort because I feel like this is more of a push I need to move forward. I am tired of waking up every day dreading the humdrum pace of life. It’s time to let this discomfort push me into my purpose.
Promoting and motivating on my own behalf hard. If you have some of my past blog posts I have a very hard time promoting myself. I am used to being to motivation to others, I am EVERYBODY’S cheerleader.
The podcast has afforded me the opportunity to be a motivation and push for myself more than usual. I have also partnered with people who have also been my cheerleader. Thank you to my podcast fam and all of my faithful supporters/ listeners. I love you guys for all that you do.
This episode was an eye-opener for me as my wonderful guest and I discussed dealing with grief. My lovely guest Cynthia Wright who I a podcaster, writer.

You can find her on all streaming podcast services and on Instagram at @gettingyourishtogether. New episodes drop every Thursday at 8amET! Check it out.
On this episode of Confessions From a Red Couch Podcast, we discussed the grieving experienced we both endured due to the loss of close loved ones. We talked about how no one can dictate how long or how you deal with grief and how it manifests. We also discussed the positive and negative ways that we coped during the process.
The next show is all about setting healthy boundaries. Y’all already know that I a big on creating positive boundaries so people won’t take advantage of you and your well being.
Not much to say about this bonus confession time I’m giving you. Just know my uterus has hated me for a very long time, and now that I want to have a baby, this b***h is acting all the way up. Yes, I cried. Yes, I am in a really dark place. No, I don’t want to smile and think positively. I need to feel this moment for what it is and then I can move forward.
