Finding Your Purpose

what_on_earth_graphicRecently, I’ve been exploring the concept of “Finding Your Purpose.” There are many books written on this concept as well as many speeches and sermons that address this topic. A really good book by Rick Warren, “What on Earth am I Here For,” also touches on this point. However, I wanted to offer a few suggestions to those of you exploring finding your purpose:

1. Get Involved– Get involved in your communities by volunteering, becoming big a brother or big sister, or by just becoming active in your church or social organization group. Here are some helpful links:

Volunteers of America

Big Brother Big Sister

2. Find Your Gifts/Talents– Find things that make you happy and do them. Take a vacation, travel, or pick up a hobby. Take the time to figure out your gifts if you don’t already know them, and use them. Need help? Try the tips explained here:

3. Become Connected with your Spirituality– This suggestion lies in connection with the previous tips. Get to know God for yourself and not for anyone else. Build a personal relationship with him, talk out loud to him, read the Bible, and pray. Scared to do this alone? Find a church group or friend and ask them to help you through your journey.

To live life is to experience life. What are you living for?
