With the new year, many of us would have put regular exercise as one of the top resolutions. But if we think back to previous years, how many times has that happened? Perhaps you wrote at the top of your list: Run a 5K. Lose 20lb. You were all fired up, joined a gym, did some workouts, posted them on Facebook… then what happened? Things just fizzled out as other things crowded exercise out of your Life and on Facebook.

2017 was a very difficult year for me. Indeed, it was the first year since I started this personal blog that I didn’t do many articles.
I could go through a long list of things, but suffice it tay it was the loss of a long time friendship with a person who was very dear to me for 10 years, and then having that replaced by enmity, that shook me up, and had a pretty devastating effect in my Life for most of the year.
But I recovered from that, and it was an experience that showed me a few things I want to share with you.
One of the most important aspects of a Full Life is relationships. For all the good we associate with them, there’s a concept that’s often overlooked in our pursuit of relationship happiness.

Recently, I went to Malaysia to learn horseriding. I’ve loved horses since I was a boy, and to learn to ride and eventually flow with one, has been a dream item on my bucket list. So I’m elated to have started.
I also scored two firsts: tasting mantis shrimp and… undergoing a root canal! A marvelous combo that was! Finally, I made great strides in my meditating, so it was a really great holiday for me.
On the way home, I started reflecting. It’s been a long hard road: from divorce, near-bankruptcy, moving from rent to rent, to where I’m now doing things I want to do, have great relationships, and amazing experiences. And what’s kept everything together for me is what I want to share with you about:
Life Purpose, and how to find it.
