Finding Purpose

I remember my big eyes staring back at me from the bathroom mirror.  My pudgy face inquisitive wondering for what seemed like hours,’ What am I doing here?’  Was it weird for an elementary school aged child to think about this?  Oddly, even as a small child, I struggled with the question that most people don’t ponder until they reach adulthood.

We all have a purpose, but it’s not so easy to understand what it is or how to use it.  Discovering your purpose is such an exciting life event and when used to it’s fullest, can benefit others.  It’s well worth the journey to uncover yours.

Here are a few questions to help you begin to discover your purpose:

  • What are your unique gifts or talents?
  • What do you value?
  • Who inspires You?

Step outside of yourself and help others.  By taking action, through giving your time to others by listening, volunteering or other selfless acts, you may ‘accidentally’ discover what it is you are meant to do in life.

This process may take time but don’t give up, the world could be completely different because you share your purpose with it.
