A SIMPLE GUIDE TO FINDING YOUR PURPOSE
Hey beautiful people, apologies for being MIA for a little while. I know you've missed me, I've missed you too. Hope you all are well and thriving. Life has been happening in all sorts of ways...so many new and exciting things coming soon and I promise to share with you guys as time goes on.
So I'd love to continue on the topic of purpose - I'm so fired up by this one. If you haven't had the opportunity of reading my post on What's your purpose, please check it out here - I promise you'll be glad you did.
I really believe with all my heart that, the purpose of life is to be happy. Finding that thing(s) which makes you happy should be an absolute priority. While I can't actually give you an exact road map on how to find your thing(s), here is a guideline :
1. Look within you : Here are a few questions which really helped me on finding my thing(s) :
What moves you?
What gets you so excited, you stay up at night thinking of ways to implement?
What sets your soul on fire?
What do you do with much ease and grace, you want to do all day long?
If you had a choice to choose what you wanted to do to earn a living, what 'work' will you do?
What compels/drives you?
2. Look behind you : A little while ago, I carried out an exercise where I just took some time to look back at my life. I was completely blown away! I concluded the exercise with the realisation that everything I've been through, was preparing me for where I am / where I'm headed. I highly recommend this exercise. Look back and see all the lessons life was trying to teach you. Look at how the universe has been conspiring to get you to where you are today.
One thing of note though, looking back at the past should not come with regret. Rather, it should come with thanks to God for how far he has brought you. Our past experiences not only help us grow, but also help us be there for others who are going through the same.
3. Look around you : Fulfilling our purpose/destiny requires having the right people in our lives. God always ensures that we have the right people guiding and encouraging us. If you still haven't figured out who they are, ask for wisdom. Sometimes, they are there to stay and other times, they are there for a season. What ever the case, ask for wisdom so you can recognise and benefit from their presence.
4. Look ahead of you : When you have a vision for your life, to keep it alive, you must continually look to the future with eager anticipation. See yourself being/doing that thing which your soul longs for. Keep it alive, re-live it everyday, stay excited about it and never, ever give up until you enter into divine rest.
I love you, I want you to succeed! I'm praying and routing for you.
Wishing you all the love and happiness you deserve xxx
