Are you feeling ‘out of sorts’ and don’t know why? Could it be that you’re not listening to the cries from your soul to do something different? is it possible that you’re not living your purpose?
What is your purpose? When we’re feeling this way, it is not unusual to awaken and begin to ponder “what is my purpose?” We look at where we are this week, month or year as compared to last and find that much of what we didn’t want is still here and much of what we said we wanted is still not present.
Dictionary.com defines purpose thusly,
- the reason for which something exists, or is done, made, used, etc.
- an intended or desired result; end; aim; or goal
- determination; resoluteness
- the subject in hand, the point at issue
- practical result, effect or advantage; to act of good purpose
One of my clients came to me after recently leaving the workforce. She was not of retirement age but felt she had worked enough and had the money on which to live. She found herself with nothing to do. In search of something to fill her days, she shopped and shopped until that became boring.
Then, she was invited to a casino and fell in love. She loved it so much she spent most of her money and was about to go into debt prior to coming to me. Working with me she answered her question “who am I really” and “why am I here.” My client stopped gambling and uncovered her purpose which is working with the elderly. She is now working with the elderly and no longer gambles.
It is important to first answer “who are you really” to discover/uncover/define/unveil your purpose. Why are you here, what have you done to add value for you and others and what will you do differently? Using the definitions above, or make your own, determine where you are on your journey.
If you find that you’re not on your purpose at this time take some quiet time and ask that your purpose is unveiled to you.
Do always as much as you can, in the way you can, in order to to be peaceful and leave your community more beautiful and beneficial than you inherited it.
