No life purpose? You're not alone.

Are you one of those people who always knew what they wanted to do in life?

Ever since you were a kid, when you were asked: "What do you want to be when you grow up?", and you had the answer on the tip of your tongue?

Well, it wasn't my case!

Even today I don't know what I want to be... and it always bothered me a lot, causing me a lot of anxiety and overthinking, because time was passing by and I didn't have a particular occupation, I didn't build anything, I didn't have a life purpose.

I always have worked, but I never found something I loved doing, waking up every day jumping of joy to go to work (I'm exaggerating, but you get my point), I envy who has succeeded to do it.

However, my constant struggle to feel fulfilled, both personally and professionally, is something I have already learned to accept.

Maybe my vocation is to be always in search of my vocation.

"What do you mean? It makes no sense".

I know it doesn't make much sense, but maybe the purpose of my life is to experience many different things in life, some I will like more than others, but the most important thing is not to settle for what doesn't fill me and move on, even if it is towards the unknown.

Everything happens for a reason, every interaction, every person we know, wherever we go, we will always learn something new that at one moment can change the course of everything.

I am a normal person, slowly discovering what makes me happy, and when it happens, I do more of it.

Writing is one of them, I always thought I didn't have the creativity to write an article and this led me to delay the idea of having a blog for years, but I came to the conclusion that I don't need to be a professional writer, a J.K Rowling, just believe in myself and start.

Fact: The most important is the initiative and not the talent itself.

The writing techniques, the inspiration, the grammar, vocabulary, all this can improve with time, but if we don't start, take the first steps, one thing is for sure, it will never go from dream to reality.

Our worst enemy is our thoughts, self-sabotage.

There's nothing we can't accomplish if we try, strive, and believe.

With this I just want to say to everybody who feels lost in life, that it's okay, you're not alone, but never settle for "whatever", get to know yourselves better, and find out what makes you happy.
