Have you ever wondered what your purpose in life is? Some people feel they have no purpose, others know exactly what their purpose is, and many of us are still trying to figure it out. What do you think?

I am still trying to figure it out. LOL I know that one is to raise my kids to participating members of society.  However, lately, I've been suffering from the "down in the dumps" feelings due to stress from work, the kids, and the economy.

I'm still trying to figure out who and what I want to be when I grow up.  LOL

I'm still trying to figure out how i fit into things in the long term but for the short term I know what my day to day is and right now that's all I can do.   Live for today, I guess and as a door opens or a path becomes more certain or clear then I guess I figure it out when I get there.

Still trying to figure it out! Not sure I HAVE one as I am not a parent and my role as god-parent and/or aunt seems to have disappeared as the kids grew up...

I used to think my purpose was making people happy and I still do that but as I age my purpose right now is to just live and let be.. As the other poster said one day at a time and let God steer my path I guess.

Oh; One other purpose I had for the last few years was to make sure I stayed away from being abused and I have been doing that sucessfully.. Other than that I am clueless.
