Many people are searching for “the thing” that is their purpose.
But the truth is, we bring our purpose to the things we do.
For example, how could we possibly pin down the purpose of Benjamin Franklin?
Was his purpose simply to be a writer?
Could we pin only one of those roles to his chest and call it “his purpose?”
His purpose did not exist in the things he did.
It came from within himself, applied to whatever he happened to be doing to serve others in that moment.
Our purpose is not in the things we do.
It is within ourselves, and fused to the things we do when we give ourselves fully to the task at hand right now.
Want to know what to do next?
Ask your gut what it is calling you to do.
Then, give yourself fully to that task.
Once you hear another call, follow it.
Allow your life to be fantastically full of variety, or soulfully stuck to one simple path.
Whichever the case, realize that purpose is not “the thing” you do, it is within you.
