For many people, there comes a time in life when you realize that you aren’t happy with just your typical day-to-day life. You start to think that there must be more to life than just trying to make ends meet and that 2-week vacation every year. You start to wonder what your true calling is and what your purpose may be – this may come after some soul searching and even therapy. So how can you begin to find your “calling,” what you were meant to do with your life? These are deep questions, but here are a couple of places to start.
Take the time to think and observe
What did you love to do when you were a kid? And what do you enjoy doing now in your spare time? These questions may not provide the ultimate answers, but at least they may point you in the right direction.
If you feel like the answer isn’t in the past, maybe it’s time to try something different. This can be as simple as going out on a Tuesday night for coffee with friends when you usually sit at home or taking a different route to work. After all, you never know when inspiration may strike. It can come from doing new things and also from unexpected places – pay attention to dreams, take a trip to the library and see what books catch your eye, and read through the paper to see if anything sparks an idea. Once you start actively looking you never know what you might find.
It will take some time for you to find your calling, but that’s OK. Try to be patient, don’t put too much pressure on yourself, and enjoy the journey.
