7 Strange Questions That Help You Find Your Life Purpose

When people say, “What should I do with my life?” or “What is my life purpose?” what they’re actually asking is: “What can I do with my time that is important?”

After some research, I have put together a series of questions to help you figure out for yourself what is important to you and what can add more meaning to your life. These questions are by no means exhaustive or definitive. In fact, they’re a little bit ridiculous. But I made them that way because discovering purpose in our lives should be something that’s fun and interesting, not a chore.

15 Best Texas Weekend Getaways

Leaving this here for potential weekend getaways. :)

Anonymous:
What's on your mind?
Me:

There have been a lot of things on my mind lately…

The friends I’ve made throughout the years and in recent months. Mentally and physically thumbing through sentimental notes, gifts, memories, experiences. Nostalgia of old times and acceptance of how the tide of time ebbs and flows at the edges of relationships, changing them gradually. Realizing that this is not necessarily a good or bad thing. It just is.

Realizing the people who are important to me, who have supported and influenced my life for the better, the people I can count on and confide in. Using this summer to reconnect and reach out, letting the ones I care about know that they are on my mind. I realized I’ve missed some of my friends so much. Distance makes things hard, but it’s worth it. I think I truly understand that now.

Becoming more comfortable and content with myself and not being too harsh with self-criticism (though always striving for improvement). Not comparing my life to those of others.

Though I naturally keep the opinions and thoughts of others in mind (which can be both a blessing and a curse), I’m learning (still) that there’s a boundary. I have a tendency to try to cater to everyone and sometimes forget about myself. Learning that, sometimes, what others think has little place in my own personal decisions.

The meaning of life, the beauty of nature. Maintaining health, exercise, sleep. Among other things. Sorry it’s such a hodgepodge of random thoughts. 

Rereading this reminded me of the top regrets of the dying post I mentioned a while back: I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.

Hopefully, I’m on the right track. :)

Hobbes: How so?
Calvin: Well, when you look into infinity, you realize that there are more important things than what people do all day.

llena de vida

Ever since my medical service trip, I’ve been unusually chipper, revitalized, social (good grief, beyond belief)… less self-conscious, less inhibited, less afraid— things I haven’t felt in such magnitude since my early college years. What in the world happened that week?

Was it appreciating the fragility of life, the value of health? Being humbled by the people I met, touched by stories of hardships endured? Amazing to drink in, difficult to swallow. A rollercoaster of cynicism and hope.

Was it the warm welcome of countless strangers’ smiles? The self-reflection and self-appraisal?

The petite old lady who serenaded us in Spanish with a wavering voice of gratitude? The woman who stripped off her earrings, necklace, and rings with wrinkled hands and insisted, insisted that we take it because “don’t worry, I can get more in Mexico.

The grandfather, uncontrolled diabetes and hypertension— without legs, without sight, without morale. Pero, llena de vida, llena de vida. 

Could something as relatively ephemeral as a spring break have affected me that much? Maybe. Time will tell, I guess.

Glad that I got to be a part of such an amazing team of talented and compassionate people. Truly a learning and a maturing experience. “Todo es possible.”
