Ep. 167 – Living the Life That You Were Created For – with Tiffany Bluhm
Tiffany Bluhm is a beautiful writer and speaker with an incredible story that just breathes life into everyone who encounters it – so I am humbled and excited to be able to share it with all of you today.
Tiffany was born in India, abandoned as a newborn in New Delhi. She was one of more than 25 million Indian children who were orphaned in the ‘80s. And for most of her life, this origin was a thorn in her side; she saw a world where everyone had baby pictures and memories passed down by family, but she had no evidence of her beginning except for a number and a name given to her by an orphanage.
So, at her core, she struggled with her sense of identity. Tiffany was lucky enough, however, to be adopted, and to be given the opportunity to talk about how difficult it was. “So many adoptees go underground with their feelings. It’s called invisible trauma, when you can’t make sense of the trauma that’s happened because you don’t have conscious memories of it, but you can feel it and you’re still dealing with the effects of it.”
But Tiffany knew that if she was here, there must be a reason – and she had to make the best of it.
Although we don’t always come from such humbling pasts, most of us feel like this at some point in our lives: lost, confused, and a little unsure why we’re here. And when we feel that way, we often end up letting the things that we do to define who we are.
However, that’s now how you live a fulfilling life that lights you up. Who you are should define what you do, how you work, what your goals are, and what your values are. When you can align all of that, you can really achieve the life that you were created for.
“I am not leftovers,” Tiffany says confidently. “This isn’t going to be the breaking of me, but could potentially be the making of me.”
