When I grow up
April 19, 2012
It has been said that most likely whatever you thought you wanted to be when you grew up at about age 5 was probably the closest to your life purpose. The premise is that it wasn’t so long since you were in Heaven in a spirit body and you still ‘remembered’ at that age, before we learned to filter out our thoughts and question what we ‘knew’.
So, I asked my mother what I said I wanted to be when I grew up. She told me I was always playing school and hospital and that I was a teacher and a nurse. She said my father would always pretend he was hurt or sick so that I could give him a bandaid or a cool rag or check his temperature, or make him lay down and rest while I covered him with a blanket. She also said I used to walk around with a clipboard and give out assignments and teach my ‘students’ everything I knew.
How funny that in my case, this rings so true. I feel best when I am writing, speaking, teaching and helping others feel better and heal. If you question what your life purpose is, think of that which makes your spirit soar, what feels right in your heart. I understand what it’s like to work the job that pays the bills, but is it also what you feel good about, look forward to getting up to do everyday? If it isn’t, you are most likely not following your true life’s purpose.
