Once you have chosen to live on purpose, you don’t need to completely revamp your life all at once. Just lean into it, bit by bit. Start living your purpose more fully every day. C.S. Lewis said “We are always falling in love or quarreling, looking for jobs or fearing to lose them, getting ill and recovering, following public affairs. If we let ourselves, we shall always be waiting for some distraction or other to end before we can really get down to our work. The only people who achieve much are those who want knowledge so badly that they seek it while conditions are still unfavorable. Favorable conditions never come.” Begin small, for example implementing a new self-care item or hobby time.
When you are living on purpose, pay attention to how you feel and the feedback you receive from others in terms of the results you are producing. This feedback should only be used to compare you to your old self, not anyone else. One way to make sure you are never happy is to compare yourself to others. Celebrate the gifts and passions you have and use them to live purposefully.
Instead of just waiting to react to whatever life throws your way, you can lean into life and be proactive in choosing how to act. You can see that beauty in the small moments that fill most of our days. When you learn to live on purpose, a new sense of freedom comes. Freedom to enjoy those small moments. Freedom to stop and think about where we want to be headed in our lives. Freedom to choose joy and create the life we truly want.
