“How do I find my mission in life?” ~ Blanca, Denver
Your mission will find you, rather than you searching for your mission. In my case, my mission after graduating from college was to have and raise my children while working. It was my top priority during that time, and I was happy taking care of them. But as they got older, I knew there was something else for me. I took a family trip to Greece, which changed my life significantly and when I arrived home, I connected to a new desire—to be a writer. I’ve always love to read but I did not know that I wanted to write.
Life is full of twist and turns but through living life, you will connect to a passion that will grace your path. This passion is something that you love and fills you with joy. Once the desire crosses your path, you cannot imagine life without it. Look around you. Are you doing something that you love? If you are… then you are living your mission.
For me, mission equates to spreading joy for you are doing something that you love. And love is a gift that we will never get tired to receive daily.
