As a life coach working with moms called to meaningful work beyond parenting – women who are building businesses and careers while raising kids – the subject of happiness comes up a lot. We want to be happier, we think we should be happier than we are and we pursue this happiness in our lives in many ways. It’s why this podcast is called Beyond Happy – because in a world that tells us the goal is to be happy, that we should do and chase after whatever we think will make us happiest in our lives – I don’t believe this is true. I don’t believe the purpose of our lives is to be happy, or that we should be happy all of the time. I believe that deep down, something within us knows that there’s something more. Something far beyond that. Deeper, richer and more meaningful.
It’s the difference between feeling happy and feeling fully ALIVE. And THAT is what I think we’re really missing. The feeling of truly being ALIVE and feeling like we’re really living our lives. Not just going through the motions each day.
In this episode we’re going to talk more about the pursuit of happiness, what that looks like in our lives and our culture and 3 ways that pursuing happiness might be making you miserable.
In this episode, we talk about:
