"Adults are only kids grown up, anyway." Walt Disney
Back in 2003, I wrote a book called Rainbow Wishes and Colorful Dreams: A Self-Discovery Journal for Mothers and Daughters Celebrating Life. This book inspired mothers to guide their daughters towards self-love and goal achievement: the entire book was about finding oneself: one's life purpose.
I remember when I was younger, I wanted to become a Nun and work in a spiritual setting: as an adult I became a Reiki Master. I also wanted to help others: I became a Life Coach. I loved to be creative and write: I became an artist and writer.
Everyone is searching for their life purpose. People tend to ask themselves, what is my mission? What was I put on this earth to do? Who am I? Finding one's life purpose is rather easy: revisit your childhood dreams. Do you have a passion? What is it? Who were you as a child?
Grab yourself a pen and paper (or journal) and play around with these journal prompts. Draw and doodle if you must and enjoy your journey and travels in time:
- Revisit your childhood dreams.
- Embrace your inner child.
- What did you daydream about when you were young?
- What were you always absorbed in?
- What were your likes?
- What was your childhood fantasies?
- What made you smile?
- Who were your inspirations?
- What were your hobbies?
- What were your interests?
- Where did your mind always wonder off to?
- What did you do best?
- How did you spend time alone?
- What were you thinking?
- What did you hope for?
- What were your childhood dreams?
- What did you want to become when you grew up?
Make a list of all the things you enjoy doing. What interests you? What do you do best? Make another list on the possibilities, so as to expand your choices. The simplest pleasures can become a lifelong fulfillment. We have a specific purpose in life. We must try to figure out what it is, and be proud of who we are.
