Do you ever wonder why you’re here. 


Yes, that big existential question. Although it’s a really big question, it’s also an extremely important one.  It’s one that should cause you sleepless nights, lots of mental anguish and occupy many gigs of RAM in your mind. This is what you will dedicate your life to. What you will put all your energy, effort, enthusiasm and love into. It’s worth paying some attention. It’s what will make you happy.

I have spent the better part of my life trying to answer this question. I remember being really young, and sitting quietly desperate with the thought that this was all there is. I was determined to make my life mean something, so I turned into a bit of a butterfly, flitting from one exploration to the next, testing what works for me and what doesn’t.

What I’ve learned is that often what doesn’t work for me gives me more clarity; and clarity is vital for building the life I want. The universe can be a friendly ally in delivering it too, but unless you are focussed and clear don’t expect too much.  As a Libran, making decisions is difficult for me – I wonder why I have to choose, why I can’t just have it all – I’ve found being clear is a compass for evaluating every choice – it certainly makes my life easier.

So back to why I’m here; well I stumbled across my purpose rather than consciously defining it. That’s the beauty of exploring and being open to lots of new things. Try saying ‘yes’ to every opportunity that comes your way for a month, and see how it transforms your life. When you put yourself out there, everything seems to conspire to be in perfect synchronicity. Go on give it a chance, I promise you won’t be disappointed.
