Blossoming into Purpose


I'll be honest, I used to feel vastly intimidated by the thought of "finding purpose." It always led to serious questions like "What am I meant to do with my life?" or "Who am I supposed to be?" It made life heavy, and the fear of choosing a wrong path became a real, almost paralyzing, thing.

But after some confused wrong turns, what I eventually found was that purpose was never meant to be some Boss-level end goal, or a singular, all-encompassing life mission. Instead, purpose is ever changing, growing with us as we fall into who we are. It creates the stepping stones of life, or lights the fire under our butts to launch us further despite whatever holds us back.

For me, purpose is in the small things that drive me forward every day. Sometimes, it's as simple as checking off a daunting task on my daily To-Do list, or the thrill of marking a lunch date into my planner. Other days, it's the reward of learning something new, or feeling accomplished that I've helped someone meet their design goals!

It doesn't have to weigh heavily on our minds, or be the same motivation it was yesterday. It only needs to propel us to the next day, hour by hour, project by project so that we are able to embrace all that life has to offer. So today...what is your purpose?
