Purpose. That burning feeling that we’re meant to be doing something meaningful while in this body and on this planet.
There’s a universal drive to find our purpose, leave our mark, create a legacy, but from the bottom of my heart I think we need to stop stressing about getting there or making it perfect. The thing about purpose is that it’s not necessarily a job, but it can be any job which you find to be most meaningful for you. Your purpose reveals itself to you throughout your life, it’s a gift that you continuously open. The more you understand, the more you can give.
Your purpose is your journey.
Living on purpose is about the little things you do every day that create a lifetime of meaning.
When you find yourself living in a way that feels aligned with your soul, you’re living on purpose. But when you’re doing what you’re meant to be doing, living and expressing your truth, following the yearnings from deep inside your soul, loving and listening to yourself, life can get a bit uncomfortable.
Why? Because you’re conscious. And it takes guts to climb that conscious mountain every single day. But the view, oh the view, is so worth it.
Here’s the trick: get comfortable with discomfort. Life flows so much more. When you stay open and accepting to your dark and light, you heal and integrate yourself.
You learn to dance in the rain.
There’s no more pushing away negative feelings so that you can be happy all the time – that’s not how it works. No more wanting everything to be perfect – because life is messy. No more spiritual bypassing – because you have to do the work to grow. No more waiting for everything to be lined up alphabetically and colour coordinated before you begin.
You just start where you’re at and trust that the Divine will take you where you need to go.
When you follow your heart and have faith in tomorrow, you get the chance to live on purpose. Because it’s not about chasing a purpose, some distant ideal of what you think your life should look like. It’s taking time today to tune inside your soul so you can know yourself intimately and allow yourself and your life’s purpose to unfold.
Living on purpose isn’t about hustling harder. It’s not about pushing more. The way to your truth isn’t found in spending more, or talking louder, or eating more, or waiting for the perfect moment, or getting better hair or stronger arms…
It’s about going deeper.
Deeper into meditation
Deeper into human connection
Deeper into creative outlets
Deeper into your curiosities
Deeper into nature
Deeper into love
Deeper into convictions
Deeper into the moment
Deeper into every single emotion that arises
Deeper into wherever your intuition guides you
Deeper into anything that feels aligned, no matter how unexpected or unconventional… because that’s purpose right there.
Go deeper. Feel more.
Believe in yourself. Believe your life is meaningful and purposeful right now, just the way it is. When you’re grateful for your purpose today, you’ll see it unfolding tomorrow, and every day after that. Stay grateful.
Stand up for all that you are.
Try something new every day.
What does purpose mean to you? Is it something to strive for, or something that you can simply, wholly surrender into?
