“Legacy is Greater than Currency”

One of the questions I often get is “what is a Woman’s purpose?” “What are we supposed to DO with our lives?” “What are we here for?” “What is a feminine woman’s life purpose?” “How do I find my life purpose?”

Although every woman’s personal life purpose will be different, a woman’s true life purpose in general, really is to create and not destroy. It’s to live your passion so that you can be an example to others. It’s to find fulfillment, and to seek growth and contribution. And it’s also to deliver yourself, in your feminine true core to all the world. (Click here to take the quiz on “How Naturally Feminine Am I Actually?”)

And as you would already know, women in many cultures today have been brainwashed in to thinking that if they’re not making any money, if they don’t have the typical college degree or ‘career’, then they are really not worthy. Even if you’re in touch with your femininity, it is easy to fall in to this trap.

Well, firstly, even though I spent 6 years at University studying, my feeling is that it is not necessary to go to university or college. In fact, I think it’s time for everyone to re-consider university or college and think FIRSTLY about their passion. Not that you shouldn’t go to college per se. It’s just that, from personal experience, I prefer I got an education than went to university.

I would like to just say one thing that I’d like you to keep in mind whilst reading this article: our culture is changing (more on this below). You no longer have to get a 9-5 job to make money (you didn’t have to to start with). Since my second year of university, I’ve been educating myself financially (something they don’t teach you in school which I think is just plain cruel), and I have found that a woman can live out her life purpose; her number one passion and feed herself through it if she so desires.

The kind of platforms we have available to us today through the internet makes this entirely possible. Now, ANYONE can be heard if they want to be. ANY woman can pursue and express herr passion and transfer it to others; if she uses what is available to her.

So here’s my very first question to you: do you LOVE what you do? Are you passionate about it? If you were given 1 hour on a stopwatch to talk about something, what would it be? Do you love waking up on a Monday morning, or do you constantly wish it was Friday evening?

Now, I am aware that not all of my readers have a full time (or even part-time or casual job). Many are amazing housewives/stay-at-home moms. I think this is superb. But, even stay-at-home moms often get to a point where they want to do something for themselves, or to engage in a passion, or to contribute/develop a vision. We all want fulfillment, and my feeling is that most of us really are lacking deep fulfillment. (read my article about a desperate housewife – how can she save her marriage?)

Should a feminine woman let her man make the money?

Today, it’s very difficult for families to survive on just one income. Everything just keeps getting more expensive, doesn’t it? But, that still doesn’t mean that a woman has to go out and work. My feeling is that a woman should feel entirely ok with it if her man is the sole ‘breadwinner’. But ONLY if she is being the WOMAN in the relationship. And that in itself (being the woman), is hard enough for most women these days. (read my article about why men do not want to marry)

It’s entirely possible (very possible) for a woman to use her femininity to propel her man to greater heights. The corporate world is a very, very masculine environment. And it’s not that I think women are incapable. Hell, no! Women are extremely talented and capable. We can do anything we want to do and commit to doing.

But. The question is: will you working truly benefit you and your relationship? And, will it truly fulfill you as a woman? Do you feel that your radiance is drained out of you through your work; or does it light you up like a christmas tree? Does it excite you and get your juices flowing? It doesn’t matter what we achive, no matter how much recognition, significance, love, acceptance and success we achieve – nothing is ever going to give us more happiness and fulfillment than intimate relationship. Funny, relationships are arguably the hardest thing to master in life. 🙂

If you feel or know that your job decreases your radiance as a woman – and you know it’s not your passion, it’s time to find an alternative. You must be true to yourself. There’s plenty of space for EVERY woman to live her passion.

Does getting a job or working decrease a woman’s Femininity?

Working does not HAVE to decrease a woman’s femininity. It depends on the job and whether she’s passionate about it or not. In all honesty though, many jobs out there require well-developed masculine energy. And, it’s fine for a woman to pursue these jobs. When in this kind of environment, a woman will mostly be in her masculine. She’ll be in problem solving mode, conquering mode, and trying to get the next thing done and the next thing done. Most jobs and industries are also very competitive. Your femininity will not come to life in competition. 

(Click here to take the quiz on “How High Value High Status Am I on Facebook?”)

The most important thing is that a woman allows herself to be in her feminine in relationship. Regardless of your occupation (whether 9-5 or not), as long as you’re the woman in the relationship; it doesn’t matter. But this is hard enough in itself. If your job is stressful, you may find it difficult to even have the energy to be the woman, to go back to your true core, and to even bother showing up in your feminine core in relationship at the end of the day. (read my article about how to be feminine)

For many women, work decreases their radiance to a point of no return. They don’t know how else to be. But it doesn’t mean you have to be this kind of woman. Every woman needs the ability to tap in to the masculine if she so wishes or when it is required.

“If you don’t contribute beyond yourself, you get eliminated.”

All this job talk aisde; true fulfillment will come from what you give to others, as well as how much you are willing to grow. For most, it’s hard to choose the path that gives you the most growth. Many people settle instead. This is a big no-no. Don’t settle! Settling gets you pain.

As per the written statement above; if you don’t contribute beyond yourself, you get eliminated. THIS is the law of the universe. You cannot be all about you. This is what babies are. Needless to say, many people are still very egocentric. This is what society has taught us to do. The very psychology of focusing on something other than ourselves is hard to understand and master.

Elimination doesn’t have to be in the form of death. Elimination can be in the form of alienation, becoming degenerate, remaining mediocre, and being a hermit/lonely. I have to say though, that I’ve never met a person who hasn’t felt lonely, even periodically. But it’s the kind of loneliness that entails not being remembered at all. Almost invisible. Having no influence whatsoever. (read my article about the secret to eliminating female competition)

And, in my view, if you are in a job/position/place in your life where you are doing something that you’re not TRULY passionate about (which is true for almost everybody); you need to change this. You will not be presenting your true self, as a gift to all the world and as a woman, if you are doing something that makes you feel crappy!!!

Where does true fulfillment come from?

I apologize if simplicity bothers you, but true fulfillement comes from growth and contribution.  What this means is that you have to be asking yourself questions like this:

“How can I reach inside myself to find better ways to contribute to others to help them take their lives to the next level?”

“How can I live my true passion; and thus deliver my full and real authentic self as a gift to all the world?”

“How can I deliver my REAL passion to the masses?”

“How can I be an example of love, courage, acceptance, passion, [insert your own adjectives here] in my life?”

“How can I give to others in a way that will be received?”

“How can I love and contribute even more in this very moment?”

“How can I be even more resourceful in my life?”

“what would it take to contribute even more to the lives of others?”

If (like the majority of people), your current job or position limits your ability to express your true voice and passion, gives you less time to make memories with your kids and family than your heart desires, puts a ceiling on your income, controls your time, money, whereabouts, who you spend your time with as well as when and how – then my feeling is that there is more for you.

You can contribute in many, many ways. I’m not just talking about doing voluntary work. So, right now, please answer these questions (preferably write down the answers somewhere, now):

What do I LOVE?

What do I HATE?

What am I passionate about?

What do I really want?

WHY do I really  want these things?

List down as many things as possible. The more you list down, the clearer the picture you see. Most people do not think consciously about these things, and that’s why you need to do it. 🙂

More importantly, please answer this question honestly:

“If I had ALL the money in the world (money is no object), what would I do?”

And you may say, well, “I’d pay off all my bills, debts and my mortgage”. Then what? I’d travel. Then what? Then I’d like, shop ‘n stuff. Then what? “Buy my parents a new house”. Then what? “Buy a new house for myself and my family.Then what? “I’d buy a new house overseas”. “I’d get that designer gear I always wanted. I’d start a new website, I’d pursue dancing.” Then what? “I’d have kids.”

OK…….Then what?! You know what I’m getting at here. Pretty much anything you ‘get’, ‘have’, ‘posess’, ‘own’ or achieve in life is ephemeral. This is why, the people who first landed on the moon were over the moon. Going to the moon is pretty amazing, right?? But, the problem was, when they returned, they fell deep in to depression! They didn’t have a clue what to do NEXT!!!?

So it’s like, I’ve been to the moon, and what now? What tops going to the MOON?!

This is why every woman needs to have a passion, and live it. Fulfillment will come from what you know you have left behind when you pass. From the memories you create. From who you became.

What I want for you is to find true fulfillment. Many women think their children are their mission, and whilst children are a major part of a woman’s real legacy, and I don’t doubt that any woman has an unconditional love for her child; children will grow up and have their own lives.

So here is what I suggest:

Find a mission that is bigger than you. It has to be outside of yourself.

Answer the above questions that I have asked you. And then begin living your passion (if you aren’t already). You may start a blog on it (the internet is an incredibly powerful platform through which to transfer your passion to others; and blogging is one of the best mediums), you may start a video tutorial series on youtube or an online tv show, you could start your own group, or do anything that entails you living your passion.

And remember it’s not what you GET in life (whether that be recognition, acknowledgement, money, status, wealth, opportunity) it’s who you become.

Over to you now. Do you think working decreases a woman’s femininity? What is your passion?  Do you have any advice for other women who may feel lost in their life or don’t know what to do? if you had all the money in the world, what would you be doing?

    why is it wrong a make your life about your husband and children renee?

    yeah kids have their own lives eventually, but then they get married and have kids and now you’re a grandma and still have that purpose! just bc a child grows up doesnt mean a mother isnt still a mother! children will always need their parent even when their adults for advice, guidance, love. you seem to have a feminist point of view in this article on just wanting to be a mother and wife and just being happy doing that.

    • Frances V

      I think what she meant was that yes be a mother to your children but do not forget that you are a still woman. They are mothers that give up everything for their children for over 18 years and then when their children grow up and get a life of their own, they go through an empty nest syndrome. If they have a partner they will continue on with their life but if they don’t they will go back to loneliness and find no purpose in their life again before kids. It’s important to have balance. At the end, you give birth to other human beings and as a mother of nature your purpose in their life is to prepare them for life.

  • Tanya Rachel Wieczorek

    What if you just honestly don’t have the money to start living your passion (let alone “ALL the money in the world”?) What if you also have health issues that affect your energy levels and simply can’t do exactly what you want every day?

    For me my answer is something I’ve known for years I’d love to do if I had unlimited money: I’d love to start one of those therapeutic riding centres for autistic and handicapped children (I’m on the Spectrum myself). I love horses and I’d be helping autistic and disabled kids learn to ride, best of both worlds!

    I don’t have a vehicle even, so I can’t even find a centre near me to volunteer with, plus I have other medical issues that leave me unable to work at this time. At times I am housebound by these.

    How does one start to live their passion with these limitations?

    I LOVE this article!!!!!
    I was laid off last year and have had the opportunity to indulge in self discovery & self employment. I love the flexibility and pace however It has not been easy financially and it’s been devastating for everyone around me.

    They are so used to seeing me working and supporting myself. In this time I’ve had to rely on my man & others much more whereas before we used to help each other and buy each other nice gifts. He recently expressed that he wants to go further in relationship (move in & marriage) however he is concerned about having to pull all the weight (we live in a super expensive city).

    He wants me to go back and work until we save and are able to pay for home, wedding etc. While I’m happy with my path, I am now realizing that I need to go back as well (for financial reasons) however I will still continue to build my business until it can replace the steady work income.

    At first I thought I was crazy for wanting to work for myself and shun corporate world but by reading this it makes sense. The real reason I wasn’t happy at work was because it dulled my feminine energy and I was not contributing in a positive way to the life of others…I felt dead inside & to be truthful I still had troubles financially.

    I was devastated when he told me he wants me to go back to work before we go further. It’s the logical masculine in him speaking but at the time I felt like he was looking down on or judging me.

    I know I’m writing a novel but I needed to share. I long for the day when i can focus on marriage family home and my own passion-fuled business making my own hours.

    My question is- How can I help my man understand that my longing for self employment & not being in corporate world is not a threat or me wanting to take from him and that I generally want to support him?

    Omg Renee

    I totally love this one! You totally knocked me dead with this one; it’s blew the socks off my feeties kind of effect, lol 🙂

    Actually I’m in part.state of arousal because I can feel my internal working at a faster rate as if I’m all ready to go out and have some sort of erratic moment.

    Yes, I feel all excited now like I have a million and one things.just dieing to come out.

    Tbh, whatever my sexual essence, I’m a really big thinker, such as I feel from such an expansive world veiw, laced with intricacie, emotion, paradox, abstraction, philosophy, psychology, you name it I practically a walking human alien and a bit of a Freak, but that’s ok by my own standards because it takes all sorts to make the world spin round.

    The trouble is I’m a bit unstable and I cause myself sadness often because my thoughts just exactly that, unstable.

    Well I don’t know what I want!

    So I figured the best idea yet…

    DON’T label myself

    DON’T figure out a career path

    DON’T wake up in the morning with the same ideas as yesterday

    DON’T try to stick to routines and work things out

    DON’T make plans of any sort because it just doesn’t work out and only leads to more confusion and.pressure which is what I definitely don’t need and can live without.

    Honestly, I’ve just spent the last 2 weeks asking the farther of my child, “what do you think I should do, what job could you see me doing, do you think it will all work out, do you think it will happen or do you think things will go wrong, what about about such and such, do you think that will be ok?”

    I know my do you think OCD questions must be so annoying and boring to listen to, but I just like certainty and certainty isn’t going to happen because I just don’t know any more what to think.

    So I’ve decided…

    My new passion is LIVE BY THE DAY…

    taking each day as it comes

    striving to be the best version of myself, and I’m choosing to fight the childhood messages.

    Weather I’m masculine, feminine, neural or alien, I choose now to do whatever.

    So what if I do or don’t have a career, so what if I do or don’t have a family, so what if I do or don’t meet someone special, so what if I drink 6 cups of coffee in a day after resigning to quite, so what if I’m inconsistent with my fitness training, so what if I go out the house with no makeup on and anything clothes, so what if I don’t wake up in the morning or anything else for that matter because life is pressure trying to figure it all out.

    I gave up!

    However, I came up with a new plan…

    start again

    That’s right

    start again


    it’s great because that means I get to start again 🙂

    Instead of figuring anything out I’m going to do something called life mapping for as long as my attention span allows for that to happen.

    And who knows in the morning I might say something completely different.

    But that’s ok because I’m not a robot and neither should I be treated as one!

    Before I can think about contributing to the world I need to.concentrate on positive contribution to myself.

    So for now (until I think of a different plan) my plan is to work on my self worth and confidence, oh and assertiveness.

    Then to think about others 🙂 That includes men also because I can’t open up with anxiety and mental health issues.

    So for 2014 my plan is to break the old habbits, undergo cognitive behavior therapy, work on building self worth.

    Next year I plan to.buid on the foundations and create new healthy relationships in my life and by 2016 I’m going to.teach myself everything I need to know on love, attraction and healthy relationships.

    I guess my.passion is learning new information 🙂

    And that’s all I can do for now.

    If all else fails then get a job in horticulture, taking care of mother earth, because it’s a job improving the quality of something else, it might not be a 9-5 job, it might mean using some level of creativity.

    I guess take each day as it comes with a rough idea in my, or.something to work towards.

    My now job is taking care or my daughter and teaching myself maths and English. It was going to be Psychology in addition but now it has to be personal development, because I need to fit in as many activities, aswell as Psychology if I’m going to be the best version of myself.

    I noticed though that since I’ve dropped the ‘I must get a career idea’, I’m feeling calmer.

    The truth is I’ve already proved to myself that the childhood messages I received were wrong, because I’m learning now, in the very present, with little to no help.

    I can do both maths and English, and some times it isn’t easy and disheartening to see half wrong answers for maths calculations, but its getting better with more practice.

    One day I shall wake up and say, “gee, I’m actually quite intelligent and brave for fighting all my childhood pain and trying to improve the quality of my life”.

    I will be able to say that I learnt enough maths to function healthy in life and enough English grammar to known what I want to say, enough self worth I shall have through trying hard…

    One day I shall wake up and realize I’m enough as I am.

    One day I shall have learnt so much knowledge and that no one will ever be able to hurt me again or take advantage of my lack of basic education and functioning needs, because I would have advanced and simply will give up caring 🙂

    Only then will I know what my purpose in a feminine women’s body will be, because I will have the knowledge and self understanding to know the purpose of life.

    In 2012 I didn’t know what a noun, verb or anything else English grammar was, and just by teaching myself repeatedly I know more of what to say and not to say.

    It’s crazy, you wouldn’t think not understanding English grammar properly would make such a difference in a persons life, but it really does like you can’t even imagine.

    You only have to look at small children just learning to talk, at first they may not make the world of sense, and get.frustrated through lack of understanding, but I guess now things make more sense.

    The only unfortunate thing I can think of about this is that most men want their wives/girlfriends to work. Everyone I talk to tells me this. Even if she can’t make much money, even if he makes tons of money. Even if the daycare charges almost her entire wage.

    I think its because feminism in the 70’s. There was this huge push for equal rights and freedom for women. Those boys raised by their mothers were taught that that was the way. These boys are now men and think they are doing right when pushing their wives to go out and work.

    Now women are wanting to stay home but the men say no way. That’s what I’ve heard anyway.

    My husband has been asking me repeatedly for my 5 and 10 year goals. He is driven strongly by “callings”, destinies, measurable success, etc. I thought about it at length, even thought there was something really wrong with me because I didn’t have a checklist of life goals. Then I found this blog and Melina’s blog— thank you ladies!!! I realized that my man is like a river- rushing towards a destination, wending his way through valleys, over waterfalls. And I am right there with him. Only, I have no destination in mind: I am like the way the water bubbles and gurgles with delight, the way the sunlight reflects on the water, the way it swirls for no apparent reason. The things I reach for are a perfection of those I already have: a life of love and happiness. He will revel in his goals and grand plans and I will be there to beautify and enrich the journey.

    • Eka

      you write such a beautiful comment here, Ellie. so much love it!

  • Passion for something was exactly what my life had lacked;) I thought it to be art but i don’t feel as happy with it as I used to… So, tomorrow I am going to start a distance learning course in Social Sciences, which I look really really forward to as I am interested in psychology but did not want the formality of uni – this way I am feeling I am learning for myself and not for a degree.

  • I love this blog! You express everything I want in a woman. Perfectly! You are doing a great job!
