Did you ever wake up thinking nah I don’t want to get up, I just want to stay, right here in this comfy bed because x y z?
You didn’t have a strong or compelling enough reason to be excited to get up for the day ahead? Or was what you were facing just more of the same of a life you thought would or could be some other way?
When you were little didn’t you just wake up at the crack of dawn, excited to be the first one our of bed? In the cover of darkness you soon learnt you had to be quiet til 7am cos that’s what your parents and grand mother told you to do.
You’d sit quietly watching tv thinking ha! I’ve got the tv all to myself I don’t need to share it with my sister or my brother. Ha! Peace and quiet. This is bliss.
Didn’t you have a purpose for living? Weren’t you living for the sake of living. There were no barriers in your way. No stories. Not too many patterns and programs. YET.
Well I’m here to say living a life of purpose is what will give you the access to everything you’ve been searching for. You might have an inkling, an understanding of what I mean here.
Your purpose right now is to feed and support your family. Keep the roof over our head. Pay our bills. Hopefully sometimes, on time. Hopefully, without getting anything switched off.
But what if deep down, within you, there is much more than meets the eye? What if you have an inner ding, as Louise Hay puts it. What is your inner ding?
It’s a source of inspiration. It’s actually the thing that does get you up. It’s the thing that will light you up, fire you up about getting the things you want in your life. It will have you get out of your comfort zone doing things you never thought you could do.
How do you find this inner ding? How do you uncover your life’s purpose?
First of all you need to listen from within. You need to switch off all the external voices and influences. Turn off the tv and radio. Equally you have to watch and observe that inner voice that doesn’t always serve or work for you. Start meditating the Waking up guided meditations are a good start point. If you’re someone with limited funds to invest in the app you can ask the founder for a free year of membership. Start getting out and being physical out in nature. Walking is a good start point but find something you can do consistently.
Once you drown out the noises and the voices, you need to ask yourself what is my purpose in life? Start with that I’m here alive and living, that is the first purpose in life. I am fulfilling on a purpose to live.
Now you want to take it to a place where you are motivated by who you are, inspired by who are are, driven by who YOU are in the world.
You have to find a way to carve out a space for you. To enable yourself to find who you really are. Under all the masks. All the barriers you put in your way over the years can just be put aside as you let go one by one of any stories you have been holding about yourself.
Then you want to begin to build a new story about who you are.
I am worthy
I believe you are capable of more than you know
I believe every one has a story to tell
I believe everyone’s story is unique
I believe there is enough in the world for everyone’s uniqueness (abundance)
I believe everyone deserves to find their inner ding, their life’s passion and purpose
I believe you just need a committed listener, someone who like for me, was my mum, who believed in me even when I didn’t believe in myself

Hi my name is Angela. I have loved writing since I was able to hold a pencil in my hand. I soon learnt I had a gift of connecting with my ancestors through writing before my 30th birthday.
