Your Life’s Purpose: The Right Thing, Right Now

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

With all the talk of finding your life’s purpose these days, it seems heretical to propose that perhaps it would be better to  simply let our purpose find us.

But I’m holding this out to you,  because all the while we’re waiting to discover what we are meant to do, life isn’t waiting for us to discover it.

In fact, life’s moving along rather nicely without any help from us, thank you very much.

Perhaps, we should just move along too.

Instead of waiting for the perfect clarity to know where we are going, it might be a better idea to do the right thing, right now.

Sometimes when the path isn’t clear, perhaps we need to trust and move forward anyway.

It’s been over twenty years ago that I first discovered my true passion and calling. I’d like to say it was driven by an inspiration.

Truth is, it was more like a desperation.  Because in the beginning, I honestly had no idea where I was going. I just knew that I didn’t want to stay where I was.

So rather than following any plan,  I simply started to take a series of steps based on doing what seemed to be “the right thing, right now.”

It wasn’t long after that, that my path found me.  In simply moving forward doing the right thing, right now I somehow – somewhat miraculously – had created a path behind me.  For where I’d been and the choices I’d made along the way suddenly looked like the “Plan” I had been waiting to discover.

It had been nipping at my heels my entire lifetime, I just hadn’t noticed it before.
