I am turning a year older today | Life Series

… and more grateful for the blessed journey so far.

Everyone is born with a purpose. Often our purpose gets defined by our surroundings, whereas sometimes we define our surroundings. It is exceptionally rare for someone to latch on to a singular purpose all through their lives. And those who do have had a far-reaching impact.

It’s never too late to go back to the hard question – what is my purpose?

I have made some big and small impact in my meaningful ways, but I must confess that my life’s core purpose is still unclear. I feel it is on its way where we are going to meet each other. I have also realized that our purpose doesn’t show up knocking our doors, and even if it does, unless you are familiar with what you are anticipating and expecting, you may even recognize it. Like the Wi-Fi looking for the nearest and strongest signal, the quest is critical.

The questions I often ask myself –

What do I want to be remembered as?
What do I want to be remembered for?

The first question defines self-creation, and the second is the creation that defines you.

I consider this as an evolutionary process that keeps taking shape with time. Your birthday is an excellent reminder to meet with yourself to undertake the only important topic you came into this beautiful world – your purpose.

Thank you for sharing some of your precious time with me each week. Leave a comment if you liked it. 

With gratitude, until next week.
