“As long as we are not ourselves, we will try to be what other people are.” -Malidoma Patrice Somé

I have learned how truly important it is to be who we are purposed to be and the best version of it. Below are a few tips/questions I have learned and reflected upon along my self-discovery journey in figuring out my purpose and passion in life….


  • Now, first and foremost, for me, being who God has destined me to be is where I began—this included constant prayer, listening,  being patient, and being consistent, and these are also part of a  journey, not a destination. Not always easy, but I have realized it is much harder in the long run when I don’t allow this to be first!

  • Self discovery of passions and desires-1. Look at who and what inspires you 2. Who do you inspire? What do you enjoy most about your life right now? Does it yield positive, healthy results?

  • Who or what are you allowing to hold you back? Past hearts? Fear? Lack of motivation?

  • Feedback- Listening to constructive feedback from wise people who have a genuine interest(not their own agenda) in helping you move forward with your passions can be a valuable tool

  • Challenge your comfort zones! Sometimes, being pushed beyond what makes a person at ease can be daunting and scary, but it is also in those times when a person can realize just how strong they truly are and what they are capable of doing and being. 

  • Remember, not everyone will be happy for your success, so don’t look for them for validation as to who YOU are supposed to be!

  • Celebrate your big and small successes!
