FOLLOW YOUR JOY TO LIVE YOUR PURPOSE
~Gwilda Wiyaka ~
Lately, we are hearing a lot about life purpose and true calling. Exactly what that is seems to be up for debate.
Some schools of thought indicate that one must find the job that matches up with their “calling” in order to live their purpose. Others allude to living our purpose through whatever we happen to be doing at the time. Some believe they cannot live their purpose as they must make money to survive – that following one’s calling is diametrically opposed to earning a decent income.
What exactly is our true calling? How can we uncover what our calling is? Is purpose necessarily attached at the hip to occupation? How can we uncover what we came to do? Or is it all a grand illusion, fabricated to give our seemingly meaningless existence value?
