When I read blogs and look at pictures on Instagram, I feel as if everyone knows exactly who they are and what they love. Some women are crafty and make the coolest things to sell on Etsy. Other women are confident mothers who homeschool and do fun activities with their kids. And then there are the trendy girls who know their style and have fun being who they are.
I am not one of those women.
Lately, I have found myself wondering “Who am I? What do I like? What am I good at? What is my passion?”
I get so frustrated with not knowing the answers to these questions. Am I just feeling this way because others seem to have it so put together? I am simply having a hard time figuring out what my passion is.
Now don’t get me wrong. I know that I have a lot of purpose in life. I believe my number one purpose is to glorify God. I want to live a life that pleases Him and brings all glory to God alone. Underneath that, my purpose has to do with my family. I want to love my husband and care for my family. I have two beautiful daughters that I have the privilege of loving, caring for, and guiding. I am their mommy and that is my purpose.
But I feel like I am missing something. I’m not sure if I just want to be busy with other things or if I really feel a need to express myself in a creative form that I am passionate about. Whatever it may be, I am writing this blog in hopes of finding who I am, what I love, and what my passion is in life.
Have you ever felt like you don’t know what your purpose is? Have you ever felt less adequate because you didn’t seem to have a creative skill or passion?
