Have you ever met someone that you were smitten by? This person could have been a lover, a friend, a long distance relative, etc. whoever they were you made an instant connection and knew that life wouldn’t be the same if you did not have them there. The more you got to know them, the more you realized your commonalities. The more you got to know them, the more you wanted to get to know them. The more you hung around them, the better your perspective of life grew. Life just made sense when they were around.
The same applies to our purpose and vision in life. When you find your life’s purpose and begin to cultivate a vision for it, the excitement can be overwhelming. You think to yourself, “How did I ever get through life without this.” You think, “Oh the POSSIBILITIES!” You remark, “I must make it my life’s work to see this through.” That’s passion! You wake up in the morning thinking about your purpose. You go to bed at night wondering how you can sharpen your vision. That’s passion! Your purpose becomes like that lover you had, or that best friend you linked with, or even that long distance relative that you reconnected with…life without it become unimaginable.
If you do know your life’s purpose or have a vision for your life, GREAT! Keep working at it. If you have no clue what your purpose is, that’s okay too there is still time. Try locating your passion and thinking of the things you like to do and would often do for free or without notoriety…this may be your purpose. Once you find your purpose or if you already possess knowledge of it, hold on tight, pursue it with passion, let it possess you, and life with it will never be the same.
Just a thought…
