Purpose (45)

This week we’re talking about our life’s purpose. Recently we have been seeing this differently in our own lives. Why do we frequently, in our culture anyway, chase our “purpose” as some big identity-defining career goal? Part of why it’s been so interesting for us to untie this is that the whole concept of our lives and who we are get woven into the idea of purpose. There is this way that we can create small boxes for ourselves to live in versus letting things have their own lives. Ultimately it leads us to figuring out how we let life come through us instead of grabbing at it and trying to mold it. Which can be surprisingly foreign!
