FINDING YOUR PURPOSE
What are you passionate about. What do you love doing even without being paid for it? What gives you that rush of adrenaline? What is that thing you think you should be doing. That thing you think about that makes you feel like you are missing out on something or that you could have made a bigger difference in the world with? In twenty or thirty years from now when you are old and grey, what would you regret not doing? What makes you smile and feel good about yourself? That may just be the purpose for being here. Are you happy around kids, do you love talking to teenagers? That may just be your purpose, to mentor kids. A life of purpose is such that impacts on the lives of others.
We all find our life's purpose at stages of lives. Everyone has their own journey, while others find theirs earlier on in life, others are late bloomers. The important thing is that you are living it out. Here are ways I think can help us find our purpose:
1.Step out of your comfort zone: Take risks, try to do things in different way from what you are used to and you may begin to see things from a different perspective and explore a whole new world of possibilities.
2.Connect with people you share the same passion with as they'll help to strengthen your resolve. As they say, "iron sharpeneth iron". You may just need to be inspired by someone.
3.Channel your energy towards your passion and what makes you happy. Explore your talents and skills, they were given you for a reason. Stop wasting time on jobs or activities that you have have to struggle with.
These are just few ways of finding our purpose, do you have any other ideas on how to find your purpose? Please do not hesitate to hit the comment button.

Welcome to my blog, I hope we all have fun as I share the crazy and not so crazy things that go on in my head. My name is Nsa, but for the purposes of blogging you could call me kobnomi, KNB for short, if you like. I am an efik chic as you may have guessed, a lover of God (don't know what I would do without Him), a wife and a mother. I absolutely love life and I'm on a journey to living it to the fullest!
