You’ve just realized what you were meant to do with your life. That is called Purpose. It’s not something you can rationalize or argue away with logic. It’s a feeling. You just KNOW it deep down in yourself. Like faith. In God. In something. This is what you believe in.
And regardless of whether you believe in God, or the Universe or Karma, you know and feel that there is a reason for living. That there is a reason for this life. Your’s.
And it doesn’t have to be fancy or extravagant. You may not be meant to travel the world, become a servant to the poor, become a famous artist or be the president of the United States of America (or whatever country you live in It’s something that has been growing inside of you. That spark and drive that has developed over the years. Maybe it’s been a loud clanging cymbal all your life. You see it bright as day.
Sometimes you don’t have any clue where you’re going. You don’t feel like what you do is important or meaningful. You may believe that what you do for a living HAS to be so. Maybe it’s simply an act, a routine, a hobby or a friendship. There’s ALWAYS something that makes you uniquely important. And if you want to know what that is, and you’re just dragging through life without purpose, just wait.
You’ll have that “Aha!” moment.
I have been there time and again. Through childhood. My teenage years. My early adulthood. Some people will call that the mid-life crisis in your 40′s and 50′s. You’re simply coming to a point again where you have to reflect and ask yourself, “Is this it? Is this what my life i/was meant to be?” There are times when you can “lose the plot” too. You’ve known all your life what you were supposed to do, but then you veered off the beaten path onto some randon road. Our journey leads us to the same point. You just simply have to know where and how you will get back on the right path to it. The one that leads to happiness. The one that creates meaning for your life. You’ll have that “Aha!” moment.
