From New York Times bestselling author and beloved Today show co-anchor 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 a critical point in their lives to suddenly find they’re being pulled in a completely new direction. By following their passions, their gut, and their heart, these people learned their life purpose was 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 They 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 They Belong is a motivating and inspirational book at finding the right path for your personal journey.
