Our theme this month is PURPOSE.

We are bringing back our scheduled April theme and speaker for this virtual livestream event.

You are here. Being here means you are alive, that you exist, and the mere fact that you exist means you have purpose.

“Purpose" does not have to be something grandiose. In fact, it can exist in all sizes and dimensions, separately, or even all at once.

Author and coach Martha Beck once wrote, “The ‘track’ of your life’s  purpose has a unique character. It often shows up as a sense of joy and lightness in the body […] It may also appear as fascination, a strong desire  to pay attention to certain topics or phenomena. More than anything, it’s a  sense that what we’re doing is meaningful.”

Your purpose is made up of both the literal and the abstract, and its power  is unmistakable. Those moments, memories, ideas, and conversations that  you find yourself circling back to, with great fondness, make up the fabric of your purpose.

What makes you light up inside? What brings you peace? What are the big ideas that bring meaning to your days? And what are the specific details about each of these feelings that you’re drawn to?

However big or however small, draw your strength and inspiration from  your purpose. Give yourself permission to approach your decisions with your purpose in mind. The more you do things in line with your purpose, the less you’ll default to what you’re conditioned to do.

When in doubt, take the steps you need to follow the path of your own joy. This path is your purpose.

The Indianapolis chapter chose the exploration of Purpose and Jason Ratliff illustrated the theme.
