It can feel like we’re always trying to search for something in life, and never really finding it. We become distracted by things like work and family and smaller goals, but never feel like we achieve our purpose. If you’re currently on a journey to finding your purpose, doing a life reset can be really helpful. Here are a few tips for finding your purpose through the reset process.
Do a Brain Dump
This is one of those strategies that is often overlooked, but can completely change your life. A brain dump is a great method for releasing anything you might have been bottling up.
Think of it as a way to transfer all your thoughts, ideas, and feelings from your mind, onto paper. Just start writing the very first thing that pops in your head, then keep writing. Don’t worry about how many different topics or ideas come to you – write them all down.
You know you’re done when you begin slowing down or are just repeating what you have already thought about.
What Makes You Feel Excited and Hopeful?
Once you have done your brain dump, you can keep writing in that journal about what makes you the most excited, or brings the sense of hope and fulfillment to your life. Not just mundane activities you are used to doing, but the ones that exhilarate you and put a huge smile on your face. The ones that light you up from the inside.
What Do You Spend Your Free Time Doing?
If you’re stuck on what you enjoy doing, think about what you tend to do when you have free time. This makes it a little easier to figure out what your interests and passions are, which is bound to lead to your purpose.
It can be anything from reading and doing craft projects, to volunteering or spending time with friends. Every detail about your life, especially your personal choices, can say a lot about you and what you’re here to do.
What Books Do You Love to Read?
It can also help to think about what genres of activities you enjoy the most. When you pick up a book, what genre do you prefer reading? When you choose a television show to watch, what type of show is your favorite? All of these little details matter when it comes to finding your purpose.
What is your purpose? Do you have any tips to help others find their purpose? I would love you to join the conversation and put your thoughts in the comments.
Love and Light!
