If you’re really willing to look deeply into your authentic self, listen to your soul’s whispers and find out who you really are meant to be, it will lead you to a fulfilling and joyous life.
DUVALL, Wash. (PRWEB) May 23, 2016
If you’ve ever felt “stuck,” author Vicki Todd says it’s likely due to an unclear understanding of one’s life purpose. Through self-reflection readers will be able to find and fulfill this purpose in order to get more out of life.
“Unstuck: One Heroine’s Journey of Art and the Courage to Live on Purpose” helps readers do just that through a series of reflective activities that also encourage creativity through art journaling. The book is a visual memoir in which Todd tells her story of “flipping” her life twice from nonworking wife in a failing marriage who lost a baby she wasn’t meant to conceive to university professor to resigning from her tenured position to follow her bliss of art. Todd illustrates her journey of self-discovery through a series of expressive self-portraits she painted while pursuing her unique calling.
“If you’re really willing to look deeply into your authentic self, listen to your soul’s whispers and find out who you really are meant to be, it will lead you to a fulfilling and joyous life,” Todd said. “You need to honor this purpose rather than push it away.”
Todd uses her personal and professional experiences to lead others to find their purposes and “unstick” themselves from life. Through her art workshops, Todd helps women identify and cultivate their true selves and create a plan for pursuing their paths.
“You may be able to easily weave your purpose into your current life, making it more vibrant and textured, without causing cosmic shifts that rock your world,” Todd said. “Or maybe you, like myself, feel the need in the depths of your soul to take a more pronounced leap of faith into the unknown to fully spread the wings of your true self.”
