7 Powerful Questions To Help You Rediscover Your True Self and Find Your Life Purpose

Hi, my name is *Emily.  I am a wife, mother of 3, and I work part time at a supermarket.

Thanks Emily, but may we do it again please, this time telling us who you really are?  Who is Emily deep down inside?

Well, I don’t know.  I have no idea who I really am…

Emily isn’t alone, by any means.  So many women define themselves, or get lost in, the labels they place upon themselves.  The labels WE, as a society, place upon each other – Mom, wife, employee, etc.  Sure, they are big, beautiful, important parts of our lives, but they are not who we are.  They are not who you are.  What happens if those labels are peeled away?  Then who would you be?  Well you can be whoever you want to be of course!

I am Krystal.  I am here to serve and empower women while spreading love, light and kindness in all I do.  I am passionate, unapologetic and wild.  I am also soft and unsure and vulnerable.  I am witty, sarcastic and deep.  And I am the creator of my own life.  Yes, I am a Mama and wife and friend and employee, but I am so much more than that.

Women often speak to me about feeling lost, unsure of who they are, and it is an all too familiar feeling.  Yes, I have been there, hell I am still there some days I am sure of it!  But I am leaps and bounds from where I was 12, or even 6 months ago.  But I didn’t ‘find myself’ overnight, or uncover who the ‘real me’ was in an instant.  It has taken, and will continue to take, time, courage and patience.  It has taken surrendering, jumping and trusting over and over and over again.  It has taken a hell of a lot of journaling and silence – listening.  Because I have of course known the answers all along, just like you do, it is just a matter of asking the right questions and really truly listening.

1.  Who were you before you were a wife and/or Mom?

2.  Who are you behind closed doors when no one is watching?

3.  Who are you deep inside your heart?  What does it desire?

4.  Who are you in our wildest dreams?

5.  Who were you before the world told you who you should be?

6.  What lights you up?

7.  What makes you feel most like you?

Peel back the labels, dive deep into your heart and soul and listen to what comes up. The more we remember and live in alignment with who we really are, the more happiness you will create and invite into your life.  Who are you gorgeous – really?
