Mindful Purpose

Day 154 of 365:

{One Word Writing Prompt: Purpose}

Purpose quote

In my 40 years on this planet, I’ve set down many a path in life, only to realize, usually with frustration, that I was not going in the direction that suited me best.  That the ground beneath my feet was felt uneven and not made for me to walk upon.

For all those times when I’ve thought “Okay – I guess this is where I am supposed to be”, but couldn’t convince myself that this was true.  All those times I arrived at one juncture or another but couldn’t be happy.  All those times I thought I was in the right place, but felt lost at the same time.

Coming through these moments (or months and years), and then finally landing and knowing, with absolute certainty, YES.  I have arrived.  I am doing exactly what I am meant to.  

If you are struggling to find that space in the world that makes you feel whole, you’ll get there.  You will end up exactly where you should be.  You will know you are there because you will not feel lost, you will not struggle to navigate the terrain.  You won’t need a map – you will just know your way around and it will feel like the brightest, most comfortable place in the universe.

It took me along to realize that my purpose in life is to be writer.  There was a lot of doubt and struggle to see what was there all along.

But I did.  And I do.

And you will too.




-Janice 🙂
