How to discover your life purpose

February 13, 2018

How true this is. There’s nothing better than knowing why we’re here. Our life purpose.

Why? Because it gives meaning to our lives. Perspective for the bad times and the good, both.

The day I realized mine changed my life.

I didn’t set out to find my life purpose, the reason for this incarnation. Instead, it was a growing recognition based on years of living. I was learning the lessons of this life without even realizing it.

I think it’s harder to find your purpose when you’re young–you haven’t got enough years behind you to be able to look back at patterns. That’s what it took for me to see it. Once I did, some spiritual connection helped me solidify my understanding of why I’m here: my purpose.

As a younger woman, I wasn’t evolved enough to see that regressions and other spiritual work could help me figure it out. I had to do it the harder way.

If you’ve discovered your own life purpose, would love to know what and how in the Comments.

    This is so true! Finding your purpose is challenging, but also so rewarding. I work to reduce the stigma of hearing loss and to help people live their best lives despite the challenges of hearing loss.

  3. I’m a teacher – and I know it’s my life’s purpose, both inside the classroom and out.

    From a very early age, I was a caregiver. Not by choice, mind you, and I didn’t realize it at the time. But, the first forty years of my life were to take care of my family members.In my forties, I realized it was time to take care of me.I look at the early years and can see why I was always more mature than my age.Now I intend to take the best care of me that I possibly can. It’s time.

    Figuring out our purpose feels so hard sometimes. At times you’re sure you know what it is but then things change. I’m not sure what my purpose is but as far as I know all that we can do is live our days to their fullest.

    It took me awhile to find my purpose and I sure did not find it while I was young. Now that I’m growing in age I have made improvements and still a work-in-progress.
