Weekend Mix: Defining your life’s purpose

 

‎”This is the true joy in life, being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one. Being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances, complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy…” -

 

George Bernard Shaw

 

 

I was looking through our archive of photos from the Road and found this gem from the inside walls of “old man” Green RV, Norm. An unknown traveler left a George Bernard Shaw quote that really struck a chord with me.

 

 

What really hit close to home was the line, “‎This is the true joy in life, being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one.” On my Roadtrip, I was seeking this out vigorously. I had allowed everyone around me to sway me, but I was never truly satisfied. And in many ways, I was hoping that on my Roadtrip a Leader would tell me exactly what I needed to do with my life.

 

 

It was only at the end of my Roadtrip, when I went home and had time to reflect, that I realized I was the only one who could provide the right answer. And after taking time to reflect on my journey, and all the advice I heard, I was able to define the things that I felt passionately about to be my life’s purpose.

 

 

So this Weekend Mix is geared around redefining your life’s purpose as something that no one—except yourself —can find. I strongly believe that it is in all of us. Deep down we all have a purpose,  but it’s in our ability to trust our own intuition that we can find it.
