What do you want from life?


I’m reading a book by Matthew Kelly titled, “Rhythm of Life.”  Though I’m not finished reading it, this book has changed my life in more ways than one.  I feel like it’s important to share this today because this book has a major impact on the current journey I’m traveling.  In the beginning of the book he ask something that immediately started turning the wheels in my head.  He asks the question, “What do you want from life?”

  At first glance you may not think very much of it; but really think about your answer.  “What do you want from life?”   Take some time out of your day to figure this out, whether it be 5 minutes or 5 hours.  In order to find your life’s passion and purpose you must first know what you expect to get out of life.  I have taken some time and journaled about what I want from my life.  I’m graduating in two months from college and still have no idea what I will be doing.  So in one sense, I don’t know what I want from life.  I do know that I’m interested in the well-being of human kind and that I want to make a difference in the lives of others.  I do not want to look back on my life and have any regrets.  I want to find and become the person God created me to be.  I want to find peace.  Once I find this peace I want to bestow it upon others.    

I have many more wants from life, but they are for me.  I challenge you to take some time out of your day and write as long and hard as you can.  You may not know the details of what you want from life, but dig deep into your soul. Discover what you want from life;  don’t be afraid to find out what will ignite the fire with-in and challenge you to live a life you have always dreamed!
