The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away. -Anonymous
This quote is so meaningful and it’s not just fancy words. I’ve spent so many years stressing over my ‘purpose’ in life. I think its because I didn’t have any special god given talents. I wasn’t really great at anything. But nobody starts out great.
When I learned that the whole reason for being on this earth is to find your joy, and started to focus my attention on what makes me joyful, things started to fall into place.
See, when you start to focus on joy, you naturally will become attracted to the things that you will dedicate your time and your heart to. You’ll cultivate your ‘gift’. I swear to you it will be such work of love that getting good at it will be effortless. And what comes naturally after that is to share it with other people.
When you love something, there’s no doubt that you’ll find other people that love it to. People that will thank you for doing it. And that naturally will become your purpose.
So, there’s no fancy, step by step way to find your purpose or create meaning in life. Just follow your joy. Take it slow. Allow it to come. Focus on what you love. Loosen your grasp to make meaning in your life and I promise, meaning and purpose will come to you.
