Finding Purpose 😊

After an incredibly long day, there are moments when you just stare at your shoes, chase your breath, and contemplate EVERYTHING that just happened.

Sometimes, you are just so tired from everything that you need to contemplate and realign your thoughts on knowing why you live, what all this hard work is for, and so many questions that no one really has the answer to but you.

So, take a deep breath, meditate if you need to, and review these quick steps on how to find your purpose:

Step 1: Reflect on What Fires You Up

Take a moment to sit back and think about the things that excite you. What makes your heart beat a little faster? Include the activities or causes that make you sit up a bit straighter, your eyes light up, and you can't help but feel a surge of enthusiasm.

Identify those things – they're your compass, pointing you toward a path that's not just about going through the motions but finding real purpose and joy.

Step 2: Explore New Paths

Think about trying out activities you've never considered, check how to start the hobbies you've only dreamt about, or even contemplate career paths that seemed off your usual track.

Sometimes, the unexplored paths are where you may stumble on hidden gems – and in this case, those gems could be the clues to your true passions and purpose.

"Your purpose in life is to find your purpose and give your whole heart and soul to it." - Gautama Buddha

Step 3: Identify Your Strengths

Next, list down what you're naturally good at – your talents, skills, and the things that make you stand out. Sometimes, asking someone when they think you are most dependable also counts.

Your purpose often aligns with these distinctive qualities. Think of them as tools that are tailor-made for your life's mission. Celebrate these strengths and understand how they can be the driving force behind your sense of purpose.

Step 4: Connect with Your Values

In this step, you need to get down to what makes you tick on a deeper level. Think of your values as the anchor of your ship – they keep you grounded, help you navigate, and give your journey a sense of purpose.

Take a moment to identify those core principles and causes that hit you in the feels. It's not about what society expects; it's about finding your own rhythm and dancing to the beat of your values.

Step 5: Consider the Impact You Want to Make

Now, let's zoom out a bit. Think about the positive changes you want to bring, whether it's in your daily interactions, your community, or even beyond. Consider how the things you're good at and the stuff you love doing can be like sparks that light up a better, more meaningful way forward.

It's not just about earning a paycheck; it's about building a life that spreads goodness and purpose wherever you go. You're not just watching things happen in your life; you're the one crafting a story that truly counts.

Final Thoughts

Remember, finding your purpose is a personal journey with no rush. It's the same as accessing higher stages in a video game once your character levels up. Take your time, enjoy the process, and savor the meaningful journey you're crafting step by step.
