Your 'Calling' vs. Your 'Purpose'

Updated: Feb 4, 2020

Do you feel like you’re here for a reason? Or just a random coincidence?

There is no right answer, it’s your opinion and you’re free to believe whatever you like.

Personally, I believe each one of us is here for a reason. I don’t believe in coincidences (anymore) and I think we are all connected by something we cannot see or touch, but rather feel and sense.

From a young age I felt I had a purpose; something I had to do in my time on Earth. For many years I was frustrated because I felt like I didn’t know what my purpose was. Now, looking back, I can see that my whole life has been centered around it, I was just looking in all the wrong places.

I think a lot of people get held up with the idea of having a purpose because it seems limiting.

“Like, I’m only here for one single thing? That’s it?”

And I can see how this would seem small, and that’s what led me to righting this post. I want to show you that your purpose doesn’t confine your life or make it small. It’s not a rule book or lines to contain your art. It’s more like the colors you choose to paint with. It’s liberating and it makes you who you are.

But, I’m getting ahead of myself. First things first:

Is my ‘Purpose’ and my ‘Calling’ the same thing?
