Finding your Vision and your Voice starts with something that seems so simple:  your likes and dislikes.

Of course, you know what these are even if you have on occasion lied about them to fit in or make yourself “look better” to others.  (Don’t panic.  I’ve done it too!)

But this is not about anybody else knowing right now.  It’s about you taking a step into being real.  Real to yourself and real before God.

I want you to look at the following list and find 3-4 of these things that REALLY make you happy.  (Not things you are supposed to like to do.)

Note also a few things you really dislike.  These will help us find what the vision is for your life.

Ready?  Here we go…

Our likes and our dislikes are like a road map to how God hardwired us to be.  It has taken millions and millions of synapses firing and dying in the brain to determine what we like and dislike, and these are incredibly important.

For today, I want you to write down your top 3-4 things that make you feel alive when you do them (that you could do for hours and not realize any time had passed).

Now, write your top three priorities in life.

Next week we will begin talking about what these mean.
