If you’re unsure of your purpose, Gaines says it’s helpful
to look at what you’re passionate about. It’s also important to learn the
lessons contained within your passions. This serves as a great guide when it
comes to identifying your path in life. Here’s what Gaines said in her column:

Is there a deep-seated passion waiting to be brought to the surface? Whatever it may be, lean into it. Discover what lessons it has to teach you. Let it matter right now even if it’s not meant to last forever. Being a good steward of our purpose means trusting that how we cultivate our lives today will matter for who we become tomorrow.
