Yes but that alone does not carry me.

No, I don't speak English and that is a secret of my happiness!

Sadly...and as I continue to learn this, only you can give your own life purpose.

However, if taken on the more butterfly effect premise, perhaps your life's purpose comes down to a single act that you won't ever be aware of that led to an outcome fulfilling someone else's fate.

It could be as basic as giving someone a hand with their groceries or paying someone a compliment. And poof...your life's purpose fulfilled in 5 seconds and it could have already happened.

Everything else is yours to define...and I'm still struggling with that myself.

I believe my purpose is to overcome the major challenges and hardships in my life. And right now, SA is at the top of that list.

You really do just have to try new things. I found mine by reading books about self development that gave some very good advice. One bit of advice from a book I read was to "learn more about something this week you're curious about". So I did. I dove into some youtube tutorials about something I was only slightly curious about at the time and it unlocked my passion and purpose.

"Put your heart, mind, and soul into even your smallest acts. This is the secret of success."
