Do you have a sense of purpose in your life?
Many of us get so caught up with the hustle and bustle of everyday life that we lose sight of the big picture. Taking time to think about what is your life about is important.
When we have a sense of purpose, our lives are richer and more satisfying.
Not surprisingly, studies show that having a sense of purpose has a positive impact on longevity. Life transitions are excellent opportunities to re-examine and re-establish our sense of purpose. Mid-life events such as, divorce, empty nest, retirement, or the death of a spouse are times when many people feel a void in their lives, perhaps even a sense of loss of purpose.
Questions to Find Your Purpose
- Take some time to ask, who am you now?
- What do you want?
- How do you want to be of service?
- What might your purpose be?
- What helps you get out of bed in the morning?
- What gives your life meaning?
- How are you serving some purpose greater than yourself?
It’s okay if the answers don’t come right away.
You might need to sit with these questions for a while. Go outside, take a walk, and give yourself some time to really think, then write your thoughts in a journal. There is no “right” or “wrong” answer here. This is just the first and most important step towards living consciously and living a life of purpose and joy.
