What a sweet card to pull this morning, LIFE PURPOSE.
You don't need to struggle to find your life purpose. Don't worry about how to make good money in a meaningful career.
Don't concern yourself with quitting or starting jobs. Instead follow the path of your natural desires, talents and passion with the intention of bringing joy to yourself and others.
Your life purpose is a process, not a category.
Focus on one step at a time with respect to your life purpose and release your fears about the future.
What you are doing is part of your life's purpose.
When I read "Your life purpose is a process, not a category." I had a huge moment of connection to that thought. I don't like creating a resume. While I really enjoy writing, I don't know how to best describe what I have done and what I have to offer, succinctly. (Yes I giggled when I wrote that.)
I have been putting my resume into the nice orderly little boxes that so many systems require now and searching for work by selecting drop down boxes that my skills might match with. It would be way easier if I could just select the hard worker, problem solver, absolutely awesome, creative, giggler, brilliant, experienced, customer service option, but I am not finding it on the list. I would also like to add photos of who I am and what I do. I am way awesome in my Facebook photos.
I wish places still had you drop off resumes at their place of business, because I am very shiny & bright when I walk into a room.
Anyway, it was a good reminder today that my gifts and purpose are in connecting with others. There is not a clear option in the drop down boxes provided for work that is done from the heart. That isn't really a job, it is more a way of life.
Sharing knowledge and creating connection will be my life's work, or purpose. I am already living that blessing.
I will keep clicking through the programs and try to find the right fit, while reminding myself that while I need a job and company to be a part of, my heart work is already mine to do, every day.
