I just had a birthday and I am doing a little self reflection. I don’t want to wake up one day and go “Wow what the hell did I do with my life?” I want to have purpose. I want my life to be fulfilling. This is supposed to be the prime of my life.
So I sat down and thought about how would I find purpose in my life? I know that I want to finish school and be an ER nurse. I know that I want to start a non-profit dental program for single low-income parents, I know I want to sell my house and move my kids to the mountains. But where do I begin?
Then I imagined for a moment that I was building a house. The first step is You hire a building contractor, but he never consults the blueprints drawn up by your architect, your designer. He works without a plan. An unwise move–because the contractor needs to know where to lay the foundation, erect the walls and
place the windows. Only then will the home look the way it was intended.
The same can be said of life. How can we try to build our life without first consulting the great architect of life, the one who created us for a wonderful purpose?
So that is when I thought …finding religion would be the FIRST step.
I read many sites offered here:
But I can see this will take much time.
What do you do to find purpose in life? Would you agree finding religion is the FIRST step?
