Insights: Stepping into what's next.
If you’ve ever been through an experience that re-defines who you are, you will recognise some of the questions posed in this episode. Whether it’s illness, relationship change, loss, redundancy, or another life-changing event, we eventually reach a point where we need to make sense of what has happened and work out what’s next and how we get there. We find ourselves at a point where we have to work out what’s important to us now, how to define ourselves in our new circumstances and what’s the ultimate purpose that will keep us getting out of bed in the morning in our new reality.
In this mini episode, we look back at my conversation with Dr Liz O’Riordan and consider whether it’s the destination or the journey that’s important in re-defining who we are and the future we want to create.
