I have spent a lot of time struggling with my life’s purpose. This is something that has puzzled me for a long time. It has so much been a point of interest for me that I’ve even spent some time meditating on it. While I’ve come out of it not feeling any more knowledgeable than before that doesn’t mean it won’t come to me later on.
The one thing that keeps floating around in my head is that I’m not getting any younger. Which is absolutely true, but the thing about finding a life’s purpose is that it isn’t something you can just make appear before you. You’ve got to follow things that you’re passionate about. The things that you love doing so much that you lose time doing them.
That is a point that I’ve struggled with for a long time. For a long time, I used to find that type of joy in writing. I could lose hours upon hours to sitting at my computer and just disappearing into a different world. For a while now it hasn’t been so easy. I still enjoy writing but only in shorter gaps.
Sitting at my desk makes me crazy. I can sit for an hour or so, but then I’ve got to get up and do things. While that isn’t such a bad thing, it definitely will slow down the book writing by a bit. Still doesn’t mean I’ll quit writing just means I’ll use more of my time to explore other things I enjoy as well.
I think with everything I’ve learned lately that a life’s purpose isn’t something you can simply puzzle over. It is one of those things that you have to chase actively. Go out, do the things you’re passionate about and when you find something you can lose hours upon hours doing for long periods of time, do that over and over again.
That may be the only way to find your own life’s purpose. Even if not, that is the technique that I’m going to try next because sitting around and puzzling over it hasn’t gotten me any closer. It has only muddled everything in my head.
Thank you again for joining me and I hope you all have a blessed weekend. Remember to L.O.L. (Live it, Own it, Love it) or it isn’t worth doing.
