‘Purpose’ is one of those scary words. It’s one of those words we’re conditioned to chase, to try to understand, and to live out in our lives. Yet the idea of being ‘purposeless’ is something so many of us encounter, no matter how hard we search for meaning in our lives. In Episode 20 of the VulnerABILITY Podcast, host Marisa Donnelly centers on the search, and speaks to anyone who’s struggling to find their meaning, or redefine who they are.
In this episode, Marisa talks about how, from a young age, she was obsessed with knowing her reason for being alive. She was always trying new things, trying to find her role, and trying desperately to learn her true ‘identity.’ Yet she failed to realize it was in front of her the whole time!
Marisa speaks from the heart in this short podcast, and her words comfort and encourage. She reminds listeners that we all feel purposeless at times, but that our purpose isn’t supposed to be this lofty thing. In fact, life is about creating purpose in the day-to-day.
Truthfully, your ‘purpose’ is about being who you are, and about finding what you love and inserting that thing into your life as much as you can.
