A question that I get asked repeatedly is “How did you figure out your purpose?”
I don’t really know the real answer to that. I’ve always just kind of done what feels good to me. To others, it looked like I am the kind of person that goes with the flow. I’ve been called a hippie, flower child, flighty. I may be all of those things or none of them. I don’t really know.
What I do know is that I’ve learned that following my intuition helps. And to top it off, I’m a bit of a busy body. So I have to have my hands in something. Taking a class, learning, doing. So I guess in a way, I stumble upon what I’m good at by doing.
Approaching 40, many of my friends are questioning. Questioning life, love, and pretty much everything in general. And one question that comes up over and over is in reference to finding one’s purpose.
Some of my friends feel like they have no purpose because they don’t have a creative talent. As if the only people with a purpose are those who are artists. The truth is, we all have something that we are good at.
It could be organizing, coordinating. Maybe you are great with numbers. Maybe you are wonderful with children. Whatever it is, it is specific to your design and who you are meant to be. And that is not by coincidence. It is divine and part of your purpose.
The thing is, you don’t have to do something huge to have a purpose to fulfill. Your purpose could be to help kids in your neighborhood to learn how to swim. Your purpose can be to organize college road trips for teens. Your purpose could be to testify and heal others.
