Do we all have just one purpose in life? Or is it more of finding your purpose as it relates to the season you are in? Or maybe to the things that you put forth your energy?
This is such a mythical question. What’s your purpose in life? Or, for those that are lost asking themselves; How do I find my life’s purpose?
If we’ve truly found a purpose, how do we know that it’s the actual purpose that’s been laid out for us? How do we know that this thing, the purpose I am living each and every day, is the exact purpose of my life?
The answer is, we don’t.
Therefore, it comes back to the original question, do we all have just one purpose in life? I’m beginning to think that the purpose for each and every one of us is the same and it is just one thing.
Your life’s purpose is to be your true self and to always feel the way you desire to feel.
The thing is, when we wake up each day putting forth our most authentic and truest form of ourselves out into the world, this is our purpose. This is what we were meant to be. In fact, this is the foundation that leads us to what we all think is our purpose.
Our purpose in life is living as close to our truest self each and every day. That, in and of itself, is a hefty purpose. But, it’s only the foundation. When you live from this foundation the choices you make change, the lens in which you see your world and the world around you change.
You begin to say no to the things that don’t matter and yes to the things that do. You put your energy into the things that make you feel the way you want to feel.
You see, maybe you thought writing a book was your life’s purpose or starting that nonprofit to feed the hungry. In actuality, those are the by-products of your life’s purpose.
Your life’s purpose is to be you. To always be you. The truest version of you. Tweet this
A you that makes every choice with your happiness and joy and fulfillment in mind. A you, that no matter what, isn’t shy to be you, or afraid.
Living your life’s purpose leads you to do things like, write a book or start a nonprofit. How we historically thought of life’s purpose was by the things we do, there are many things that feed from our life’s purpose.
Those things are the by-product of our life’s purpose. Those things define our mission or vocation, the actual work and service we give to others.
Your life’s purpose is to be your truest self, always.
