I've found that in the last year or so, the big things have fallen into place when I let them. I got into the uni course I wanted, I got accomodation even when I applied far far FAR too late, and little things all year have just fit.
Of course, this doesn't mean that they're easy when they're actually happening: because I applied so late, I got a terrible room on ground floor near the door and the walkway. However, it's made me realise what I do want, so I've clearly defined what it is that I want for next years accomodation. And I've tried things in my course and I've decided to give myself a challenge next year subject-wise, and I've learnt what I don't want also.
I've found that if things seem to click into place, don't give up when following through seems difficult. Especially for me, when I've got a heap of growing and learning to do, sometimes even a life purpose won't make things easy! But it might steer me onto the path where I can discover myself more and make myself a better life. And I'm in no rush. Figuring it all out is half the fun!
EDIT TO ADD: Although, a question I do want to ask: that exercise both you and Steve recommend with the four areas... how do you approach it when you don't have much in the 'ability' area? I'm only just legally an adult, I'm still learning basic business skills, I don't have any clue of what I could do professionally... any advice? The other areas aren't easy either, but they're much more personal of course, and not as easy to get help with.
