Discovering Your Life Purpose Pt.1

By: Angela Mayah Solstice

For many years I felt as if my life was meaningless. Feeling pressured to “make it” in life, I rushed into many vocations. At one point I was a teacher, next a real estate agent, and then a small business owner. I was the type of person who could do anything I put my mind to, but what some saw as ambition and talent, often ended in frustration and disappointment to me. I wanted to be great at one thing, not good at many. I wanted to find that one thing I was so great at it was undeniable that it was my gift and strongest talent, because of this belief I was unfulfilled, and none of these ventures brought me happiness or peace. The school I taught for closed down, I abruptly left real estate, and my small business failed miserably. For years I viewed each experience as reminders of times of disappointment and inadequacy on my part. This was not a pretty sight as I projected this feeling of inadequacy onto every relationship and situation I found myself in. 

As of late, I had the grace of walking into my life purpose. Finally knowing without a doubt what I was put here on Earth to do. Even more, it was a healing within itself as I realized that my previous so-called failures professionally and personally directly linked to my purpose. Every person, relationship, job, and situation was meaningful after all! I know many people wonder, how do I discover my life purpose? I am by far not an expert, but I will share with you the steps I personally experienced in getting there. Until then, try and venture off into your imagination as you explore what it could be God has planned for you life. Until then, it's all one day at a time!
