No one has figured it out, yet
No one has figured it out yet.
Over the last few days, I caught up with some dear friends from my hometown whom I hadn't seen in years - some for almost 15 years. To my great surprise, time had little impact on the way we talked to each other. We continued to communicate from a place of heart, open to listening to each other's wisdom, learning from each other's experiences, and sharing our life stories and secrets in a lightweight and joyful manner, no matter the subject.
One thing that became obvious in all of these exchanges is that none of us has figured it out yet. Despite our completely different life choices, situations, experiences, daily lives, problems, and circles of new friends and people we now all have, none of us has found all the answers.
And that's very comforting! Yes, it really is!
Despite the constant work, particularly over the last couple of years, I am nowhere close to having any answers to the life questions that are most important to me, such as "Why am I here?" In other terms, this means, "What is my purpose, and what are my values in life? Am I honoring them?"
It's obvious that no one has figured out their life's purpose yet, nor is anyone even close to fully realizing it. And that's okay.
The fact that, 15 years on, I can still bring this simple question to the table with my friends, right off the bat, is amazing.
The hunt for the answers to life's questions and the unravelling of the many little knots for a serene and fulfilling life is still on.
And I'm not alone in it; I'm with a group of close friends, all of us a lot wiser, striving together.
We can talk about these topics with new perspectives and learn from each other once again.
It's a testament to the strong trust relationships that flourished during the fun but hard years of our youth, and it fills my heart with many layers of hope.
