What is Your Life’s Purpose? And How to Find it.

Has this question ever crossed your mind?  Well you’re not alone.  This question has crossed my mind for years.  In and out of my thoughts.  Moments of contentment, or shall I say settling, until I couldn’t ignore this question any longer.  What was my purpose?  What was I supposed to be doing with this life?  What are my talents?  What can I do with my life that will fulfill me?  I was super lost.  I tried many things.  I went back to school.  Got a whole new career.  Got a whole new mound of debt.  Switched jobs.  And crickets.  It got to a point where this feeling that I NEEDED to do something more was too much to ignore.  I cut my hours at my full time job and decided I was going to find out what that was.  And let me tell you, I will never look back.  I tried looking everywhere for my purpose when the WHOLE time all I needed to do was look within.  Be still for a moment.  If I wouldn’t have listened to myself I wouldn’t be here writing to you today.  I would still be on that hamster wheel I was on for years.  Do I know if this path of running this blog and starting a business will work out and become the outcome I want?  No clue.  But what I do know is that sharing on this page with you is fulfilling me right now.  Right now this feels right.  This blog makes my heart beat.  I feel excited.  I feel joy when I work on this project.  So I don’t know what the outcome of this new venture will be, but I do know it will bring me closer to my purpose because it FEELS right. 

So how do you go about finding your purpose?  Here are some of the things I did and asked myself on my search, I hope they help you too. 

Start with what excites you.  What are your interests?  What do you dream about doing?  If something truly excites you, there’s something there.  Your dreams are there for a reason.  Your natural born talents are there for a reason.  What makes you FEEL excited?  Start doing these things in your free time.  Take time for yourself to do the things that excite you.  Start doing those things that feel good and bring you joy. 

What can you do for hours and get lost in?  You can’t wait to get home and get lost in this certain something.  What do you do that makes you feel like your true authentic self?  What makes YOUR heart beat?  Most importantly, what is it that you would do if you couldn’t fail?  What is it that you would do if money didn’t matter?  Those are the things you should be doing.  Those are the things you should be nourishing.  Don’t settle.  You deserve better than to settle. 

Seems pretty simple, huh?  Finding yourself can be a long, hard process, I know.  Trust yourself.  Do what feels right.  Most importantly, follow your heart.  If there’s one thing I’ve learned on my many years of soul searching and one thing I want you to take away from this post,  it’s that your heart never lies.  If you stop listening to what society tells you that you should be doing and go within and listen to your own intuition, amazing things will open up to you.  So how do you find your purpose?  You listen.  Not to anyone else, you listen to yourself.  Nobody knows you better than you.  What is your soul screaming at you that it’s time to do?
