Week # 2 – The Many Layers of Self
The journey towards living a life on purpose begins by uncovering the many layers of your own life. One of these layers is your vocation – the work you do. Other layers include your relationships, your well-being and your spiritual self. And since life is lived multi-dimensionally, there is an interdependency that connects all of these rich layers together. These layers call on you to express all that you can become. This week, take a few moments to answer the following questions.
- How well does my work contribute to my sense of well-being and sustain what’s important in other areas of my life? How does it contribute to my personal growth?
- The relationships in your life include your life partner, immediate and extended family, friends, business associates and co-workers. What’s working really well in your relationships today? What areas need attention?
- What are you doing to maintain your well-being, physically and psychologically? What needs attention? What leisure activities bring you the greatest joy and how do they contribute to your sense of well-being?
- How would you define your spirituality? How does it manifest in your life and in the life of those you love? How does it support you in your everyday life?
Understanding what’s working well in different aspects of your life will give you a good sense of what you need to keep doing and begin to highlight what needs attention.
