Why Am I Here?

Posted: 01/15/2010 in Positivity, Spiritual

I’ve been asking myself that question a lot lately: “Why am I here?” and “What the hell is my purpose in life?” I think about all that I have experienced over the years and sometimes get depressed that I haven’t contributed anything to the world, or to other people. I have focused too much on the negative experiences to remember the positive experiences. My intention is to be someone that helps others, and I’ve been racking my brain trying to figure it out. What skills do I have? What career could I start? What is my passion and how could I use this to help others?

So I figured out that the one thing that is part of my life when other interests (or things I felt I was passionate about) have come and gone: MUSIC

Since I can remember, music has been my passion and has been part of my life. My father was a drummer and singer, my mother plays piano and sings, so I started from an early age in music. I have realized that even though I wasn’t conscious of it at the time, my passion seems to be teaching kids to play music. I used to teach guitar to a boy with autism, as well as some other kids, I have coached the Stairway to Stardom program (a music program that puts bands together and they write songs and have a battle of the bands), with two of my bands winning, so I have recently realized that that may be where I’m supposed to head on my life path – my purpose. I think I’m supposed to somehow be involved with teaching children to play music.

So now that I have an idea of what I’m supposed to do, I would encourage you to do the same. Really examine what you have done in your life that you may not have realized what you could call your passion. Think of the coincidences of situations that have happened, or people you have met, that you may not have realized are really telling you what you should be doing with your life. It may not just be a coincidence, it may be a roadmap to finding out why you are here and what the hell is your purpose in life.
