Life’s Purpose


This has always been a big question on my mind. What is my life’s purpose? It’s big, daunting and scary. Why am I here? What am I supposed to do? There are so many possibilities. how do I choose?

I find it’s easier to take this question day by day. It’s a smaller scale answer to this big question. I look at my values on the small scale to give myself more directions.

I take a look at my habits. What am I doing daily to strengthen my spirituality and faith? This lent I have started reading a bible passage a day. My husband and I have started our dinners with saying grace. Some nights I have added back in self reiki.

I look at my mental and physical habits. Am I resting, journaling, eating well, drinking water, sleeping, practicing self care, being active?

The next level is- Relationships and career. How am I with others (at home and work and everywhere)? Do I like my job? what are my strengths and weaknesses? Do I like the people that surround me? It’s really looking at this part of your life and seeing how you show up each day.

I think ultimately this is about being true to our needs and wants and to be the best person we can be to ourself and others. I don’t have all the answers. I don’t have most of the answers. To me, life’s purpose is following by Gods example and continuing to be a good person and ask for answers and continue to take action towards what I think is best day by day, but what does living your life’s purpose mean to you?
