Your Life's Purpose
What does it mean, to live your life-purpose? When you are expressing who you are and doing what you love to do from your authentic self, you are living in purpose. You share with others your gifts, your talents, and what you feel passionate about. When you're in purpose, you feel good about yourself because you know you're making a contribution to enhance or help others in some way.
If you enjoy pumping gas and greeting your customers with a smile on your face, you are in purpose. If you are a nurse and you feel compassionate and helpful assisting others along their journey of wellness, you are in purpose. If you spend your day on the front porch waving to all those that pass by, you are in purpose. If you love staying home with your children and you love being a mom, you are in your purpose.
Take a moment and reflect back to your childhood. What did you always say you wanted to be when you grew up? What did you love to do and what brought you great joy? As you reflect upon this, you might discover some clues leading you to your purpose.
Purpose is what brings you joy, happiness, peace, and fulfillment. It's not living the expectations of others or doing what you have to do or are supposed to do. When this happens, you feel stuck and trapped in something that's not who you are. This creates unhappiness, resentment, depression, and stress.
You decided a long time ago, before you birthed into this world, what your purpose would be. You, God, and the angels all sat down and designed a plan, deciding what that special purpose would be that would fulfill you and help others. It really doesn't matter if you believe this or not. What matters is, you have the opportunity to be fulfilled, happy, and abundant in all that you do.
