Do you know your purpose? Do you live it?

Some people know their purpose in this world right out of the gate. Others stumble into it eventually. Some consciously seek it; and of those some find it and some don’t. But everyone has this feeling, deep down in their soul, that they are here for a purpose. If you are one of those people who just knows they have one, but haven’t been able to figure out what it is, take a look at the following questions that folks living on purpose can answer easily and without doubt.

Does what you spend most of your time doing:

  • Sing to your soul?
  • Capture your spirit?
  • Fill your heart with joy?
  • Erase all sense of time when you are engaged in it?
  • Help someone in some way?
  • Make the world a better place?
  • Feel like so much more than a job?
  • Give you an overwhelming sense of well-being?
  • Sit right in your gut?

If the answers to the questions above are a resounding YES you are living on purpose. What you do isn’t about what you do; it’s about your spirit. It’s about who you are. It’s about your own, unique purpose in this earthly life. It’s about taking whatever gifts you were given and giving them back through sharing.

It doesn’t have to be a grand purpose; although it very well might be. We are all given different gifts to serve with. It may be your intelligence, your creativity, your ability to love compassionately. It may be your ability to raise children or work with animals or bring good cheer wherever you go. It may be your generosity, your intuitiveness, your willingness.

The point is that we all have a purpose. We all have the gifts to live that purpose. Do you know yours? Are you living it? If the answer to either question is no or I don’t know and you would like it to be yes, take a good look at the questions above and see how they apply to what you spend most of your time doing. Your life has a purpose. You just have to believe it, find it, and start living it.
