What Should I Do With My Life?

Many of us struggle to figure out what we should do with our lives, what our purpose is. But actually, it’s really not as hard as you might think.  We live in a world where everything and everyone around us is always telling us to follow our dreams and do what we love.

But when we have no idea where to start, it can be seriously frustrating.  Many of us feel like we don’t know who we are, or what we even really want from life.  Finding our purpose in life is not about realizing that what we are destined to do or be. Our purpose is life will never be just one relationship or just one job. Our purpose in life is just to be here, as crazy as that may sound to you.

Your mere existence has changed the world in a way that you are not able to see. It’s too bad you can’t see it, but if you understand that, it can change everything.  With you here on this planet, nothing would exist in the exact way that it does right now.  So stop believing that your purpose is a career, or a role that you take on.

Perhaps that smile you offered to someone when they were feeling down was your purpose for that day. Perhaps your job was your purpose for a few years. But no matter what you are doing, you are always impacting the world.  Your purpose is to be the best version of yourself, to be the happiest and kindest you can possibly be.
