The Truth About Purpose

The Truth About Purpose

Hi my dear Friends,

In regular times, the concept of purpose is something we think about and wonder how we can fulfill it. This year, it’s even more charged, and more complex. We all want to live a meaningful, purposeful life. We all want to feel like we are contributing to something bigger than ourselves, that our skills are being utilized, and that we are being seen, honored, and heard.

For a long, long time, I thought purpose was a tangible, set in stone, secret to unearth in my life. I thought that if I kept chipping away, and asking myself the right questions, I ultimately would discover that one “purpose” that I was meant to be fulfilling.

Now, I believe that purpose is an ever evolving, overarching intention from which we live our lives. It doesn’t have to fit into a box or meet anyone else’s standards, it simply has to align with who you are, and what you desire.

Purpose isn’t solely what you do and how you spend your time. Purpose is the energy that you bring to your life and to the people you interact with every single day. Purpose is an honoring of who you are in each moment. It is knowing that you, your life circumstances, and desires will change over time. Purpose isn’t an external title, but rather it is an inner desire to show up every single day as the best version of yourself.

It is in these definitions that my purpose becomes clear,  because I know without a shred of doubt, the kind of person I want to be. And that person can show up in any external title that presents itself in my life. It isn’t my talents, my skills, or even my influence that gives me purpose, but rather, it is the feeling I have inside when I know I’m doing things that are aligned with my soul.

When we start to look at purpose from this place, it no longer feels scary when life changes around us because we are solid from the inside out. Purpose no longer becomes something of privilege because it lives in all of us, no matter our backgrounds. It is in this lens that purpose becomes inclusive and easily attainable, so long as we go within ourselves to find the answers that we seek.

If any of you are feeling or have ever felt,  how I was feeling about navigating purpose, I hope this helps you and brings you a sense of peace and relief. It certainly has for me.

If you feel called to share your experiences with your purpose, I’d love to read about it in the comments.

xo,

Michelle
