It’s up to every one of us to find our life’s purpose. This usually doesn’t happen overnight. Although for some, it takes a relatively short time. However, one thing’s for sure. It’s a journey that everyone must take. The way each of us gets there will vary. The pathways will be different and as unique as our fingerprint. However, the journey is important. The journey will be filled with many things that give clues as to who you are and what your life’s purpose. The journey will be your fulfillment along the way.
Nothing is more important than getting in touch with ourselves. Without a close personal relationship with ourselves, we can’t learn much and we don’t grow, at least not as much as we should. We don’t accomplish as much as we can either.
However, when we do accomplish things, much of what we accomplish is based on what others think we should achieve. The challenge is to dig deep. Dare to explore who you are and start the journey towards finding yourself.
Your journey may place things in your life that you don’t understand initially. It may even be something as random as learning the process for preserving wood poles. However, each encounter will leave you with valuable clues or lessons to aid in your journey.
Developing your soul
Once you truly understand the importance of exploring yourself, the journey becomes a seamless passage that may have many twists and turns. However, the process will be fulfilling. You will find ways to use the information you glean to uncover your life’s purpose if you haven’t already. You will also look at everything in life as something that will move you closer to your goals.
Putting it into action
We must practice the meaningful things that we learn on our journey. This is true for anything and anyone. If we want to develop a certain skill we must practice it consistently. When we don’t practice the skills, we shrink. We atrophy. We cease to develop.
Just like a muscle, our lives require conditioning. Unless we’re lifting life’s weights, muscle atrophy will set in. When we fail to give our soul the attention it needs, our lives don’t flourish. In fact, you may spend your life doing things. that you think will bring you closer to your purpose only to realize that it’s someone else’s idea.
Take your time. Dig deep. Finding the meaning in life is no easy task for anyone. It requires time and attention and honesty. These can be difficult things. It can be difficult to devote time to our journey when we aren’t sure where our journey is taking us. However, the journey of 1,000 miles begins with the first step. Life is not a race. The speed at which you travel is intensely personal. However, once you are on the journey you will most assuredly find the meaning in your life.
