Of course with the letter P today, I wanted to drift towards writing about the podcast. That was too easy.
The purpose of this journey is what I will write about because purpose has been topic on my mind for a few months. If I am honest, for my entire adult life I have thought about purpose. What is my purpose? For today's post, I will restrain from diving deep into my struggles with purpose.
The purpose of the podcast that is something that is fitting for the blog.
The podcast was entirely selfish. I wished to meet published authors and inquire from them about their journeys to publication. In return, I wanted to provide for them a place to share their work with new readers. I often have said in the podcast, "It’s all about me learning."
The purpose has defined the podcast interviews. I have started to develop a fantastic support group of authors. Each author’s journey has astonished me. I have learned and hopefully, passed along many tips.
My hope has always been that readers connect with these authors, and the authors inspire individual like myself—who may be starting their attempts into the publishing industry.
What I did not expect was to find that my purpose is defined. I no longer struggle with knowing what my place in this world is right this very moment.
I have seen one little bit of the world to claim as my corner. I am in love. The kind of love with a project that lasts. Not the type that burns out when it is no longer fun, and it’s all work. The development and creation of the podcast from the start has been work, but I have not felt like it was working at all.
There is fulfillment in this purpose; my only hope is that the purpose aids others in their journey as well.
What about you, do you struggle with your purpose?
