Are you where you belong? Many of us wonder. We float around in the half-empty glass, gaze out into the world of possibilities, and wonder if we should get off 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?
In Where We Belong, Hoda Kotb explores the challenging journeys of people who found their true calling in life by following their passions, their gut, and their heart. The compelling stories include an investment banker who became a minister after years of working on Wall Street, a young woman from a blue-collar background whose passion took her to Harvard Medical School, a high-powered PR executive who was drawn to a unique close-knit community, and a once “no-kids” guy who now helps children all over the world. Hoda also interviews celebrities, such as producer Mark Burnett and actress/producer Roma Downey, comedienne Margaret Cho, and former boxer Laila Ali, all who’ve pursued their passions to fulfill their dreams. The stories told provide examples of perseverance, self-reflection, and new attitudes on life making Where We Belong a motivating guide to finding the right path for your personal journey.
