True North. In scientific terms, it’s the direction along the earth’s surface towards the geographic North Pole. In personal terms, I’d define it as clear, non-negotiable values. That magnetic pull that points to your authentic self.
My 2017 was a year of reflection, self discovery, vulnerability and personal growth. Hard work, but so rewarding.
(And, quite frankly, a relative relief following a 2016 full of losses and grief. At least healing was underway.)
A year that began with restlessness and doubt — and far more questions than answers — became a path toward clarity. Uncovering my core values and beginning to intentionally lead my life in that direction. My True North.
Sometimes I learned I was asking the wrong questions. (No wonder I wasn’t finding answers.) Other times I realized I was working far too hard. After all, True North isn’t about hustle — it’s about heart. It’s about listening, and being still. And so 2017 shifted my perspective, deepened my faith and reminded me that worth and value exist not outside, but inside.
One of the friends who encouraged, supported and influenced me all year long urged me to share this path with others who seek the deep, pure peace that comes when you know your purpose on earth. And when the path for an authentic life is revealed.
Enter: True North Challenge.
It’s a free, five-day online challenge (in a closed Facebook group). Jan. 15-19, maybe a bonus day on the 20th. And you’re invited if you’re ready to sort out your path and find clarity — whether it be in a relationship, career decision or other life change.
Or maybe you just like self discovery — you are welcome, too!
There are no strings attached … simply reflection and encouragement in a safe space. There’s no better way to start to a new year.
If you are ready to trade restless for purpose, and orient to your own True North … join me!
