I’m about to be fifty. I am done raising children. Now I’m left to figure out my new purpose. My purpose had always been to be the best mom and wife I could be.
I still want to be the best wife but I need more too.
So, I am trying to figure out my purpose in this next phase of life.
What excites me?
Making others happy
Shopping for others
Little funky towns
And I think traveling is about to be added to this list.
Now where is my purpose in that list?!
Do you agree with the quote?
I do, but I do not know what is in store for me using any those things listed.
Something I learned from my dad is that your purpose isn’t always a big public display. Most of the time it is that you were there for another person in their time of need. That your trials in life allow you the empathy to help someone else.
So, I am patiently wondering is my purpose to simply be helpful along my journey through life or is there an action plan for something else that I have yet to see.
I have many thoughts on possibilities of things I would like to do. But I truly believe as I work through ideas God will settle me on His purpose for my life.
I do believe when things are meant to be they will come together and fall into place. But I also believe we have to actively pursue different avenues until that time that it all comes together.
This was a nice exercise for me, writing down things that excite me. I may go back and add more as my mind has time to ponder on this.
What’s on your list? Do you see that they are part of your purpose?
