What if you could easily find out what you’re really meant to be doing with your life? I’ve long been fascinated by how the echoes of what we could be in our lives are around us every step of the way. Most times we don’t even know they are there.
If you look at the collective of your hopes and dreams, even delve into the things you choose not to share, you will always find a thread. It’s through that thread that you can find where you most belong and then make a conscious decision to walk the correct path for your life.
Look to the work you have chosen to do. Think about what you have centred on or the causes or the passions you have followed. Remember and rejoice in the people who have inspired you. Consider the main moments that have carved your motivations, your moments of joy, and you will see that within the supposedly smaller and less momentous ebbs of your life there is, just as nature intended, a pattern and a scheme.
Part of bringing yourself out of the shadows is accepting how easily the jigsaw can come together if you just let it. Where you’ve supported someone because you admire the job they’re doing is the place you could start looking. It may be that you want to do the same work but don’t yet have the confidence to step into those shoes. The volunteer work that drives you to do more, do better, provides a clear message about where your passions lie. Even the dreams that fill your nights provide the roadmap to a more meaningful explanation of who you are and what you should be doing with your life.
We can all spend time hoping for the easy answer to one day present itself but in truth if you can see your own ‘wood from the trees’ by taking the time to step back and look at your life simply, it is all there before you.
Find the heartbeat of your bliss and you are halfway there.
