The work of the heart

What's your purpose in life, why are you here? Do you have a destiny, is there even such a thing?

You have a unique character and personality (you're a special snowflake, just like everyone else...). These qualities are what you will excel at, your gifts and abilities.

Your mission in life, should you choose to accept it (and most don't), is to pursue the work of the heart. The human heart is strong, capable of love. Of changing people's lives, of building something real and lasting. What you can build, what you can do, who you can love. That's the work of the heart for you. It's not a career, it's not a lifestyle. It's a life. And it's the only thing that will satisfy you.

Of course the catch here is that loving, building, requires the involvement of other people. So you need to find your people too. People are tricky. You included. Learning to work with them, to be set free in the work of your heart, will refine you and strengthen you. This is a painful process, but it's the only way. You'll discover more about yourself, and find your place in your world. Not only is it incredibly rewarding, it's the only thing worth living for.
