Have you ever wondered what your purpose is in life? Do you believe you are here for a reason? For many people, these questions are far too abstract and difficult, yet others love to ponder the answers.
What I have noticed is that as women age they become more inquisitive, more curious as to why they are here and what they are REALLY here to do.
I am one who loves to continually ask myself this question and am extremely interested in what other people believe. Some are very clear on what their purpose is and many go through this life never knowing or even asking.
Personally, I believe our main purpose is to experience joy on a daily basis. What gives us joy and how we bring it into our lives however is all very individual. The difficulty often lies in the fact that as busy women we may not take the time to really ask, “what truly brings me joy?”
If your life purpose or mission is something you want to discover, start asking yourself some powerful questions. What drives or inspires you? When do you feel truly happy and connected? What brings you joy? Where do you feel you contribute the most? What do you value? What energizes you? When you leave this world, what do you want people to remember you for? The answers to these questions can often help you develop your life purpose.
Knowing and believing you are put here on this earth for a particular reason can bring much joy, happiness and contentment into your life. We tend to struggle less and enjoy life more. Often you hear people say, “I feel stuck,” or “I don’t know what I am supposed to do with my life.” In my coaching sessions with women, these are common statements. Discovering your purpose gives focus to your life, therefore more meaning and clarity.
The first step to determining your life purpose is to become clearer on your priorities and to begin practicing better self-care. Chaos creates confusion so look at ways to bring more balance and peace to your life. Start a habit of always asking yourself questions.
Self questioning is one of the best ways to learn more about who we are and why we are here. Reflect on and journal the answers to the questions I asked earlier. Be inquisitive about life in general. There is so much to be discovered. Be patient and enjoy the process.
Determining your purpose can be an ongoing journey, but once you discover it, you will attract everything you need in this life. When you know why you are here, the journey becomes a whole lot more fun. So hang on and enJOY the ride!!!
