How often have you found yourself in the situation where you’ve finally achieved something you’ve been working towards for a long time – but then felt a nagging sense of dissatisfaction? It is a feeling that can creep into in all walks of life if we’re not careful. It could be new job, or a…

Purpose

Finding purpose in life

Losing your sense of purpose can be devastating – and it can happen to any of us, at any time. But what does it really mean to lose it? What does it mean to have it? And why is this sense of purpose so important to making your life a meaningful and a happy one?…
