There is the age old question of ‘why am i here?’ which is ultimately a question of purpose. Why do i exist? What value do I bring to the world? Where are the answers? How do I figure it out!?
These questions have undoubtedly caused many sleepless nights. Up late, eyes wide open staring at the ceiling or tossing in bed, or pacing or trying to quiet the mind with social media or the TV.
But why is purpose important though? Why do we even need to figure this out? Cant we just live and go with the flow, ‘que sera sera’ our way through life?
If it could all be so simple, right? But we know its not. We feel a deep desire within us to engage in some worthy endeavor that gives us a feeling that we know (even if we have never felt it before). Fulfillment.
I believe we do know the answer. I believe its the answer that calls out to us and keeps us up at night, not the question.
I believe the answer is; sharing what you are good at, taking what comes naturally to you and sharing it with the world. Are you naturally funny. Share that. Are you naturally able to take complex concepts and break it down so others can understand it. Share that. Are you able to stare into someone’s face and recreate their spirit on canvas. Share that. Unapologetically and authentically.
Leaning into your purpose is an acknowledgement of who you are and what you are good at. Then taking that and sharing it wholeheartedly. Without fear or reservation.
