For years, I lived on autopilot. I ate, breathed, shopped, studied—and generally went through life—without knowing why. I made decisions based on how I felt at the time.

Still, the deeper questions of life haunted me. “Why am I here?” I wondered. “Who am I? Where do I want to go? And how can I get there?”

For thousands of years, the most brilliant minds—and also the simplest—have stumbled over this question.

Having a purpose in life makes living in the world today much easier. And finding your purpose in life might feel as though it's impossible to do, but in reality it really isn't.  

Making a list of your talents can in some situations help. I also used different things I have done in my life as another form of figuring out what my purpose in life is.  

Having Christianity is a bonus really, because we know we have been put here for a reason. Finding out what that reason could be is what we live our lives searching answers for.  

Our physical and mental body might be affected in the world. However, the spiritual side of us, if we search and are willing to look at that part of ourselves, wants to know what the purpose in life is for us. Some people find their purpose in life early on, while for others it takes some time.  

Finding the purpose of life can take time and it is something that I have learned can't be rushed. Not if you are really looking for the answer.  

Some experts have written books about the subject and there are some authors that have tried to actually tell others what their purpose in life truly is. But I don't feel as though this is an accurate answer. Simply put, no one else can tell you what your purpose in life is, and part of the learning and living experience in life is finding your purpose in life.  

Without that drive leading you in life, there would be no point to your life. There would be no reason to excel at what you are doing or to improve on what you are good at. By applying life experiences to what we learn by everyday living I believe everyone eventually has the ability of finding out what their purpose is in life, and doing what they are good at when they do find out.

Whether Christianity is a part of the answer or not, being able to know what your purpose in life is will ultimately make you appreciate life all the more.

    • We all have a purpose.  Some greater or smaller than others.  I believe that we touch lives and change things, we can choose to do this with our free will in a positive way or a negative way.

      But no matter what path we choose we do make a difference.
