I have a feeling this title is going to turn into a mini series because the more I write on it, the more I realise this is an ongoing and ever changing process. This is why I strongly believe it is so important to continually think about and write down your thoughts, worries, dreams, feelings in order to continually progress and process life.
In today’s post, I am going to talk through just three questions that I’ve asked myself, and believe have really helped me channel my thoughts into finding my purpose. In society, we can get so caught up with what is right or wrong and is deemed as ‘good enough’. It’s easy to believe that ‘good enough’ is too hard to find. Particularly in my generation of ‘the millennial’, there is so much pressure to be a certain something, from ourselves. our families and friends, and probably most of all, social media. Among all of this, it becomes so confusing to seek simplicity, and find our true purpose in life.
I hope these questions bring you clarity and spark an inner conversation with yourself. It really can be simple when we seek true meaning.

Once you have asked yourself these questions, and let your answers come from within, uninfluenced by anyone other than yourself. Notice any patterns that come through with each question. Only you know your purpose, you just need to dig deep enough, and seek simplicity to find it.
