Have you ever been lost in life? Maybe you’ve watched a friend or family member stumble from job to job, endeavor to endeavor with no clear purpose or sense of direction. It even happens to leaders or celebrities who seem to have it all.
For example, a recent news story delves into Jessica Simpson’s return from heartbreak and renewed embrace of her country roots.
Excerpt from the Tennessean:
Simpson talks of the move to country as a full-circle moment for her, and father/manager Joe Simpson says this is the happiest and most confident he’s ever seen his daughter. But the new music also marks the end of a phase of Simpson’s career in which singing made her feel frightened and unsure.
“I had so much fear,” she said of the year-and-a-half that followed her late 2005 split from Nick Lachey, her husband, fellow pop singer and MTV reality co-star in Newlyweds …
“It’s a spiritual thing for me, like ‘I know God has a plan and a purpose,’ ” Simpson said. “For the first time in my life, I take a lot of pride in my talent and in the record I was able to put together. With the writers, I felt comfortable opening up, because the only way this opportunity was going to be a great one was to be honest with myself and with them. If I want to be singing it for the rest of my life onstage, I want it to be honest.”
Is there an area of your life where you are on track, but need a course correction like Jessica? What are you doing to find your new path?
