Do you feel a little lost on your journey toward purpose? If so, this may be a good time to pause. It may help to remind yourself that purpose doesn't need to find you. You can find it. And it might not be one big purpose but many small things that bring you joy.
Think of purpose as a blend of what you're good at and what you care about. It may help to think of purpose as something bigger than you. You also can think of it as something that matters to others as well as to yourself.
