From New York Times best-selling author and beloved Today show coanchor Hoda Kotb – inspiring stories of people who find their life’s purpose in unexpected ways, often surprising themselves and the ones they love most.
Most of us wonder what we’re doing. We float around in the glass half empty, gaze out into the world of possibilities, and wonder if we should get off of our raft and climb out. Maybe even today you asked yourself: Is it too late to do that thing that made me so happy when I was young? Could what matters most to me finally be the center of my life? Can I really trust this yearning voice in my head and longing in my heart? Do I feel like I’m where I belong?
In this incredible collection of stories, Hoda Kotb reveals individuals who reached critical points in their lives and suddenly found they were being pulled in completely new directions. By following their passions, their guts, and their hearts, these people learned their life purposes were utterly unlike what they’d planned. From the investment banker who became a minister after years of working in Manhattan to the young woman from a blue-collar background whose passion took her to Harvard Medical School or the high-powered PR exec who found herself drawn to a pioneering residential community, the stories in Where We Belong come from an array of ordinary individuals who have discovered the power of embracing change. Hoda also interviews celebrities, such as actress/producer Roma Downey, comedienne Margaret Cho, and boxer Laila Ali, who have all pursued their passions to find fulfillment.
With examples of perseverance, self-reflection, and new attitudes on life, Where We Belong is a motivating and inspirational look at finding the right path for your personal journey.
