“I don’t know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who have sought and found how to serve.”                                                                           ~Dr. Albert Schweitzer

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if there were a signpost that clearly defines what direction to take in order to find our purpose? Of all the philosophical questions about life, “what’s my purpose?” is one that is continually relevant, and often revisited throughout a lifetime.

For younger adults, their purpose seems very clear. It often involves becoming educated, choosing a career, working and raising children. But for older adults who have retired from work and whose kids are grown, finding their purpose for this next stage of life can be both daunting as well as liberating! Daunting because of being faced with “what now?” and liberating because now the world is open to them. No longer faced with what “should” be done (according to culture and society), they now have the opportunity to explore what “could” be done – and the sky is the limit.
