We all have faced this question at one pint of time or other. we all have tried to find out our purpose of life. but, how many of is do you think really realize? well, I just happened to find out.
Health, wealth and respect might be some of the tangible and intangible assets someone might include in his/ her purpose of life. Someone might even have a purpose of giving out love, helping millions of people, making world a better place in his / her list of purpose of life.
I have lived a better part of my life and as of yet, i have come across this question hundred of times. What is the purpose of my life? I have not found a true answer to this question.
Funny thing is, I don’t know how to find it. And even funnier things is, not even those people know it, who I thought, might know. So, somehow, its completely up to me.
Maybe I need to do some soul searching, maybe meditation and yoga might help, or maybe I should connect with enough people and gather their opinions of me. But I am not sure any of this will help. Why? Because I do not follow any such structure.
Sometimes, we find our answers in most peculiar ways possible. I found my answer couple of days back when I was smoking along with a smoker. He was talking to someone else and I overheard it.
“My purpose of life is to become the best version of myself. I do not care what anyone thinks about me. What’s most important for me is my opinion about myself.” Well, in that very moment I found that it went with my priorities. And so, thus I found my purpose of life. ‘To become the best version of myself.’
