Purpose

“Ultimately, man should not ask what the meaning of his life is, but rather recognise that it is he who is asked. In a word, each man is questioned by life; and he can only answer to life by answering for his own life; to life he can only respond by being responsible.” ~ Frankl.

There is a lot of buzz and hype at present around finding meaning and purpose in life.

Perhaps too much?

What do you think?

Perhaps purpose is changeable.

Purpose today may be different to purpose yesterday, last week, last year or five years ago?

A sense of purpose is one of the things we know increases satisfaction and happiness in life.

We know that we need to feel needed, useful; that we have a reason for being. Purpose.

Perhaps purpose is really simple?

Perhaps we are so focused on searching for purpose that we overlook our purpose? Do we contribute to confusion and dissatisfaction by focussing on the search for true purpose when it is much simpler?

Perhaps my purpose today is to love and care for family who need me. Perhaps tomorrow it is work with clients and develop budgets? Perhaps tomorrow it is to support a friend who needs me?

Perhaps in seeking purpose and one true calling we overlook what we have set out to find?
