Hey, friend. My name is Jordan, and I’m a recovering perfectionist with a chronic need to achieve. I figure it’s always best to start with honesty.
Now, I know you’re probably trying to decide if this book is worth your time. So I’m going to tell you right out of the gate why I wrote it and why I believe it’s important for you to read.
The number one question I get asked by blog readers, podcast listeners, social media followers, and even clients is something along the lines of “How do I find my purpose?” or “How do I figure out what I’m supposed to do with my life?” All of these women are different—some are making the transition into or out of college, navigating marriage or motherhood, or finding their place in the workforce. These women are taking steps to establish themselves in this big world but are feeling pressure to figure out exactly where they ought to land as soon as humanly possible.
Sometimes when I get these questions, I want to reach through the screen, hug a stranger’s neck, and say, “Girl, chill. You don’t have to have it all mapped out today, okay? And even if you did, you’d probably find that something would shake up those plans tomorrow anyway. Take a breath!”
Unfortunately, the reach-through-the-screen feature hasn’t been created yet, so this book is my best attempt. We all want to make our mark, find meaning in the mayhem, and discover what makes our lives special, unique, and even notable. At least I do . . . and the girls who reach out to me with these questions do. I’d be willing to bet that you do too.
Now I want to take it a step further and ask you a question: Do you ever feel pressure to find your purpose—to find the reason you’re on this earth and what it is that makes your life count?
Of course you do.
