What is your life purpose? Is it clear as mud and painted in hot pink on the forefront of your mind with a plan, roadmap and goals to follow, to take you to that warm and happy place? Probably not.
If not, are you hoping and on your knees praying your life purpose will just appear, all on its own or are you actively out there seeking it? Probably not.
It is so easy for us to live in our comfort zones or, as I put it, living in our uncomfortable comfort zones. Like ground hog day, we get used to doing the same thing over and over and use chocolate or other forms of comfort foods or actions, to provide us with a reward or something fun or yummy to help us deal with our daily drags or hope they will numb us out.
We may dream of sitting on a desert island, or day dream about winning the lottery and living our dreams but we often use this as a pie in the sky dream, rather than a plan taking us on an amazing road trip to our actual life purpose and our new reality.
Eating an elephant
As the saying goes “Eat the elephant one bite at a time” and in seeking our life purpose, we couldn’t be closer to the truth and can follow the same philosophy right to our shiny purpose.
You cannot sit here one day and hope without any planning to be living your life purpose tomorrow.
It is a journey of self discovery and hard work, it is a process of elimination, and it is an exercise in getting to know you.
It is trying and failing or flailing, getting up with a burst of energy and trying all over again and again and again till you find it.
When you find it you will know. Life is different, it flows; you have a sense of purpose and feel strong and driven to succeed and start to deliver your life purpose to the world whether it be big or small.
You have more energy, you have a spring in your step and a groove that oozes charisma from the inside out. Others can sense your purpose and want some of what you’ve got.
Your purpose may be being the best mum in the world and bringing up beautiful well behaved and well balanced children, or, it could be being an advocate for animals, or it could be starting a business called Life in the Pink. It is whatever gives you the awesome feeling of being purposeful.
If you don’t know what it is. That’s ok. Don’t be hard on yourself just get busy and get started in finding out.
Get up off the couch, put away the chocolate and get busy getting started on seeking what your purpose is. Do what you need to do to find it, keep busy and keep believing that you will find it and continue to believe in you.
It took me twelve years of dabbling, studying, failing, flailing, getting excited, letting myself down and spending lots of money.
Then one day all my preparation and years of seeking presented to me my purpose on a platter. A hot pink platter.
It was just so easy once I was there and so obvious in hindsight. But, It took me twelve years of planning and journeying. It was a journey. At times it was hard and hopeless. Other times I thought I was there then I knew I wasn’t.
Now I am there, I know it. I feel it. I am grateful for it. I can’t wait to work on it, and grow it.
My road was paved with snippets of treasures and hints of where I should head and what I should do next.
One day many years ago I sat at my desk and created a book cover in hot pink called “Handbags, High Heels and Happiness” I printed it off and put it in my in tray. (Where it still resides)
Many years later, Two months ago I launched a book with a hot pink cover called “Heartbreak, Healing and Happiness”.
What I thought was a pie in the sky dream, I never thought I could really write a book, despite wanting it more than anything, is now my new reality and writing this blog today still gives me goosebumps knowing I have achieved this.
I have created my dream, my purpose. My contribution to the world is, sending out positive vibrations helping in any tiny way to restore faith and make the world a better place.
If I can change just one person’s day or life my contribution is all worth it.
