"Everyone has his own specific vocation or mission in life... Therein he cannot be replaced, nor can his life be repeated. Thus, everyone's task is as unique as is his specific opportunity to implement it." ~ Viktor Frankl
from Man's Search for Meaning

Stuck? Write down the question: "What is my specific mission in life?"

The process of discovering who we are and what our greatest gifts are AND how we give those to the world is, at least in my experience, an arduous one.
We don't just snap our fingers and say, "Aha! That's it!"

distinctions, but they come in the midst of (pretty much constantly) living in the question of what my mission in life is. AND having the courage to start taking the baby (and/or BIG) steps I feel intuitively called to make.
"Your work is to discover your work and then, with all your heart, to give yourself to it." ~ Buddha

Let's live the question. And, the answer.
