Saturday’s 30th high school reunion was a small gathering but most of my old girlfriends were there so it was definitely worth the trip.
I noticed as we each caught up on family and work that the ones who seemed most content and joyful were those who were living on purpose. One fine example is my dearest high school friend, Jeannette (pictured). I remember her fondly during our high school years as being the “go to” girl for hair and makeup advice. She was the one to work her magic on you before any special event.
For the last 17 years, this former executive secretary has focused on raising her son and daughter in Phoenix. At the loving encouragement of her husband, she headed back to school 15 months ago and is a few weeks shy of her cosmetology license. She plans to eventually open an upscale salon out West or somewhere back East. She’s on purpose and looking forward to this new entrepreneurial career as the kids head off to college.
I hope you’ve discovered your purpose and are living it every day.
