I've been noticing a shift in the creatives I love and look to as mentors - many of them seem to be navigating into the territory of spirituality. Have you noticed this too? These entrepreneurs have been in the online space for a while and really seem to have made it big before turning inward in a search for meaning.
As I follow along (mostly by podcast), I've wondered to myself on more than one occasion: have I got it all wrong? Did I do it backward? I feel like I've been on the spiritual journey for many years. Being born to parents of differing faiths gave me a jump start. Confronting huge life events will too. My child was born seven years ago with a serious heart defect. He survived. Other children with the same condition, born at the same time, and treated by the same medical team, did not. "Everything happens for a reason" has simply not cut it for me for a long time.
I did things the opposite way. My inner work led me to start my business. Other people started a business which led them to search for meaning. All the paths leading to self-discovery are good.
It's easy to forget that sometimes. Remind yourself today that your path is the right one for you.
