My girlfriend forwarded me an email recently about Oprah's 'Who am I?' journal. The important question here was: 'When I was born, what was the plan for my life?'. Wow. That is WAY too big a question for me.
Then, today, someone posed this question to me: 'What is the purpose of your life as you see it?' Same sort of question, re-phrased. And put in the context of today - if I examine what I want from my life as of today, what is the purpose of my life from here on? This seemed to be a much more manageable question, and it is not phrased in such a way that leads me to believe that when I was born, there was already a plan for my life. Because that leads to way more questions than answers.
So, I tasked myself with thinking about what is the purpose of my life as I see it. Wow again. At first, it seemed like a manageable question. But now, I'm not so sure. And I wonder how many people ask themselves this question and continue to ask the question as they evolve?
