"The purpose of our lives is to be happy.”
— Dalai Lama
Are you fulfilling your purpose?
While some of us have already figured out our purpose and how to achieve it, many are still putting the pieces together as they try to determine their place in the world and their contribution to humankind. Irrespective of the stage at which you are, know that it is a process.
And, as part of that process, remember that "the purpose of our lives is to be happy". So, if you need to pause, take a step back, or even start over, know that it is okay and that period of refocusing might help to align with that purpose.
