What do I want from my Life gifted by God to me?

I think this is a question which must be there in everybody’s mind that what do I want to do in my life? Or What I want from my life? This life is the gift of God to you. You only live once and die once, in between you have got a life to live where you experience the joys and pains of living a life. It sometimes seems that we are living our lives in a straight line, it is only when you go through all the twists and turns that you understand that life is much more than you understand or can perceive beyond your imagination. All the unknown things which happen in your life keeps you on your toes and also takes away the peace of your mind. When you were born you had no tension regarding anything. You just woke up, ate, played and slept but now you had the “N” number of responsibilities on your head. You are very well aware that it is you who has to sort out all life’s problems on your own and also take care of all the responsibilities which are on your shoulders. You cannot shrug off your shoulders and say that I will not handle my responsibility and try to hand out them to someone else. You know that no other person is bound to handle your burden. It is your’s and you very well have to take care of them. When you are struggling with everything in your life be it your relationships, work, business or home environment the only question which strikes your mind is what do you want from your life? What is it that you actually want to do? Why you cannot figure out in which direction you should move to? Why you feel stuck?

It is only when you start asking questions that the answers appear at the right time in moments when you need them the most. If the answers did not appear at the right time the whole world would have crashed because I firmly believe God sends right people in your life at the right time and also help you find the right answers at the right moment. When everything is going fine in your life you just live your monotonous life. It is only when adversity strikes your life that you get aware of the uncertainties in life. It is only then you understand that nothing is permanent and certain in your life except you yourself. When you have reached rock bottom in life and cannot find a way out of it, you start thinking of what to do and you question yourself as to What do I want from my Life? What am I meant to do? What is my purpose in life? Why God gave me this life? When you have questions in your mind, the universe sends answers to you in the form of people or experiences where you get your answers. You then start searching for a meaning in life. Previously when everything was “ok” in your life you never bothered to think what you wanted from your life. It is only when your life gets topsy turvy that you ask yourself, What do I want from life?

Every person is different so is their thinking so when you ask yourself what do I want from my life, some may want to do good and meaningful work or those who have earned much more than necessary may ask themselves what do I do with my wealth or contribute to the society in your own way or live a good life with your family which you missed because of your demanding job. Every person cannot expect the same thing from life. Some may want a good paying job, some may want a big bungalow, luxury car, a good wife, a meaningful husband, an obedient child or some may just want peace in their life which they missed when they were employed. Every person’s needs are different and so is their purpose for which they are born on this earth. This life is a gift of God to you so do not live someone else’s life, do not live like a copy cat, try to be original. When you know what you want from your life, things get easy for you because then you know your destination. You just have to carve out your own path which will lead you to your destination. The path will not be simple but you will tread the trail easily because that is what you want in life.

You cannot sit idle and get what you want in life. You have to go out and do your Karma or act and then only you will receive the fruits of your labor. No one else is going to do it for you, you have to do it yourself. You will get support from the universe when you need help but till then you have to be on your own. Be clear about what you want to achieve in your life so that you can align your purpose with the right action. Thoughtful action will happen only when you are crystal clear in your mind as to what you want in your life. If you want a good car or a big bungalow, you have to go out and do good work then only you can own them. You cannot purchase them by sitting idle on your couch and daydreaming about them. If you do so then you will never get what you want. You have to go out and make your dreams come true. If you want a good wife or good husband then you have to go out and search for one. No one will come looking for you, you have to go out and make things happen. Remember your action towards achieving your goal is very important. If you love a man and he has not yet opened his heart to you. You can take an initiative and propose him so that things can move further and you can marry him. If you both keep quiet then how will your love blossom further? When you gain clarity of what you want in your life you start achieving your goals one after another. If you want to be a good housewife become one and don’t feel low that you are not working while the rest of your friends are doing good corporate jobs and bringing money home. Whatever you want to be you should be clear about it.

Do not live a hanging life where you are stuck in the decision-making process and indecisive of which way to go because you have not yet defined your purpose of where you want to see yourself. Remember the past is gone and the future is yet to come. What you have is today, you can decide today and the let the future unfold itself in front of you. If you realize things very late it is ok. Do not cry for the lost time just concentrate on the present which you still have and the future which you can build when you start now. The now which you live is much more powerful than the future which is yet to come. You do not know what will happen tomorrow or what amendments you will have to make in the future so that things work fine. You can do your best today after you have made the decision of what you want from your life gifted by God to you. Just live your best life and do what you want to do. Try to achieve all your goals and never mourn over what is lost. Always concentrate on what remains when everything is gone. You can always build a new life from the remains you possess. You should be ready to take the risk and daring to move ahead in full faith even if you cannot see the end of the road. You walk in faith that the path which you have chosen will lead you to a good destination where you will be happy. Take responsibility for all your decisions because some of them will turn out to be a big disaster, accept them because you own them and move on in your life. Do not try to blame someone else or cry if you took a wrong decision, accept it and move ahead. You cannot undo anything so just move on and learn all your lessons.

Have a great day.
