As mentioned in a previous post, I recently came across a great blog by Misty Sansom that aims to help you find your life purpose…something I have been searching for; pretty much forever. She suggests 25 Questions To Uncover Who You Are. I will take a stab at answering these here.
Question 1: “What does your ideal day look like?”
Seems easy enough. Years ago I would not have hesitated with this question. Kind of like when you are asked what would you do if you won the lottery. I always had an answer that I didn’t hesitate to spill out. However…the person I am now seems to get pretty blocked when asked this question. I kind of need a set of questions just to help me answer this first question…
I think I have a conflict with this because there is the ideal day I would like to want to have vs. the type of person I think I am and the ideal day this person I am is capable of having. And it’s not that I don’t believe in myself or believe in change. It’s that I never like anything for too long. So in a perfect world I would like what I think I like. But in real life, even if I have that day, I would probably end up hating it because it is the same as the day before or the same day I imagined. And as much as that bothers me, I also don’t know if something different every day would make me want to crave stability and then I would want to have the original ideal day back.
IDEAL DAY OPTION 1: I would love to wake up before sunrise, without an alarm clock and see the sunrise while meditating looking out my window. Then leisurely have breakfast and read something interesting. Then sit down somewhere beautiful and write until I don’t want to write any more. Then go to lunch with a friend. Then go meet with someone super interesting and talk all afternoon about the universe and amazing things. Then come home and watch the sunset.
IDEAL DAY OPTION 2: Hmmm. Don’t know. Maybe spending the day listening to people that are aligned with spirit, with source, and are living their true life purpose. Just listening to these people’s stories all day would be a dream come true.
IDEAL DAY OPTION 3: Waking up with a purpose and doing whatever that purpose is. That would honestly be my perfect and ideal day. Hence, why I would love to know what my life purpose is.
IDEAL DAY OPTION 4: Being an artist of some type. I am not talented. So this is a problem. But the life of a bohemian seems intriguing.
Question 2: “What did you want to be when you were younger?”
Hmmm. My earliest memory is of me wanting to be a singer from the age of about 5 until I was in about 5th grade. Then I wanted to be a model. Then I wanted to be an actress. When I started college I wanted to be a psychologist. When I was a young adult up until maybe 5-7 years ago, I think I wanted to be a top executive and a boss and make lots of money and run many companies and work on wall street and have expensive cars and be a no-nonsense kind of badass executive chick with no heart.
Question 3: “Who are you most inspired by? Why?”
In general I am inspired by people that are aligned with spirit and are living their life purpose. Those people are just everything to me. I view them with such awe. The fact that they have found their true life purpose is just fascinating to me.
Question 4: “Who would you love to meet? What would you ask them?
My spirit guides and guardian angels. I would ask them what is my life purpose. What am I supposed to be doing here. I am ready to do it, as soon as I find out what my purpose is.
Question 5: “What habit would you most like to break? What habit would you most like to start?”
I would love to stop being inconsistent. I have a terrible habit of starting things and then losing interest fast.
I would love to be consistent about meditating on a daily basis before sunrise.
Question 6: “Think of a person you truly admire. What qualities do you like about that person?”
My sister. She gets up every single day and goes to work. She smiles every day. She never complains about going to work. Her days are hard. But she pushes on. She has lived a hard life, but she pushes on and does not complain and does what she is supposed to do. She is the strongest person I know.
Question 7: “How do you like to relax?”
Laying on my couch binge watching pretty much anything. It can be something I have already seen. Doesn’t matter what is on the screen, as long as it is the same series all day with the same characters. Pretty much any marathon will do. I don’t really watch it. I just like the continuity.
Question 8: “When was the last time you did something you were afraid of?”
Two months ago I went to a foreign country without an itinerary and without knowing much about the country, on purpose, just so I would have a new experience.
Question 9: “What are you most proud of?”
My deep faith in God, in the laws of the universe, in spirit.
Question 10: “What are you most afraid of?”
Never finding out what my life purpose is, and ending up without a way to take care of myself or my family.
Question 11: “If life stopped today, what would you regret not doing?”
Not fulfilling my purpose for being here on earth.
Question 12: “Who would you like to connect (or reconnect) with? Why?”
I would love to connect with Spirit. Because in the past, when I have felt aligned with Spirit, the world was incredible.
Question 13: “What qualities do you admire in others?”
Consistency. When people can force themselves to do repetitive things, like go to the same office, or the same job every day, day in and day out, even when they don’t want to be there.
Question 14: “What practical skills do you wish you had?”
I wish I had consistency. I can do anything. For short periods of time. Long term consistency is not a skill I possess.
Question 15: “Imagine you are in your 90s. What memories would you like to have? What stories do you want to tell?”
Memories of amazing synchronicities. Amazing coincidences that I can retell.
To be Continued…(See Question 5 above….I already lost interest…didn’t even make it to Question 25. Oh boy…)
