Like most of us, I'm always searching for my purpose in life. I believe we're all born with a gift, or talent. Something that we are given that enables us to change the world for the better, if we realize this gift and actually use it. I've always wondered what my gift was. My mom has always told me that God has big plans for me. I believe God has big plans for all of us, but very few of us actually live out that plan. I've always been curious about this divine plan for my life. I've recently been feeling a bit lost. Lost in this world, lost in my relationships, and lost in my own head. It's extremely frustrating.
After driving myself crazy wondering what I'm supposed to do with my life, things are slowly starting to come into focus. I've always had a very curious mind. I've questioned everything for as long as I can remember. I'm sure I've driven my family and those around me absolutely nuts. I have a restless mind and spirit. I'm fascinated by the world around me. I want to go to as many places as possible, and meet as many people as I can. I believe we all have a story, a history, a message that needs to be heard.
I'm a very outspoken and honest person. Sometimes (a lot of the time) that gets me in trouble. I don't see it as a total weakness though, it's also a strength. I believe my voice can and someday will be used to help others be heard. Ultimately what I've been rambling about is my decision to pursue journalism with all that I have. I think it's a career that will leave me feeling the most fulfilled.
Every aspect of my personality seems to fall perfectly in line with the traits needed to be a successful journalist. I've often wondered if this was the path I was supposed to take, but now it just seems so clear. It's right for me. It's what I need to do. I feel like it will let my voice be heard and the voice of countless others who don't have the ability to speak for themselves.
I'm happy to say that I'm slowly starting to figure things out. This revelation is just one of many that I hope to have. If you're feeling lost, I hope you start to figure things out for yourself as well. It's a wonderful feeling.
My Question to you: What have you been wondering about lately? Have you recently had any revelations in your life?
