Finding purpose in life is not always as easy as it sounds.
I’ve found that some people know their calling at an early age, while others are well into middle age and still don’t know.
I’ve often wondered why that is. Does the breath of the universe somehow whisper into some people’s ears, while ignoring others?
Are some people meant to do great works while others are merely meant for mediocre things?
We are told that each of us has a specific purpose that we are meant to accomplish in our lives, be it a career, becoming a parent, a hobby, a talent…We are, each one of us, supposed to possess some divine purpose.
But what if you have no idea what your purpose is? Where do you find out?
My thoughts are that all things are revealed to us at the right time, but we have to be open and listening.
On those days where you feel like you were meant for more when you feel that deep longing in your soul, pay attention to what you are longing for.
Maybe your purpose is to be a mom and raise children who will grow up to change the world. However, you think that there is more for you. Maybe there isn’t. Maybe your place right now is at home, taking care of your family.
Maybe your purpose is to work hard at a career or job. You might feel like you want more but maybe where you are right now, is truly where you’re supposed to be, and in time, when the universe knows you are ready, things will change.
Waking up every day and being alive gives us so much to experience and be grateful for. This new day is a new purpose. So don’t waste it away wishing or hoping for more. Use what you have and be where you are. Soak in the present moments and enjoy your life. Because the ultimate purpose of life is not just to be alive but to live.
