Finding one’s purpose is a topic that keeps coming up these days. It seems it’s on the mind of many people in my world.
Ironically, I just ran across these notes I jotted down from a book, podcast or show. Unfortunately, I didn’t note the source. However, they seem appropriate. My apologies to the originator for not giving you credit.
Three Steps to Finding Your Purpose
1. Remember where you came from.
2. Figure out what inspires you and brings you joy.
3. Determine how to share that.
I think most of us get stuck on step 2. For me that’s such a long list it’s hard to narrow it down to what I should focus on. People have far worse problems, of course.
I do know one thing. I am incredibly grateful for the daily comfort and joy I experience. I am truly blessed in so many ways, and so thankful for it. It’s easy to be jaded, but most Americans experience a daily comfort level most of the world will never know. (Typed on my high speed internet connection in my air conditioned house.)
The question is, what to do with that grace, that gift.
