This is what finding your vocation in life is all about. When God created us, He put a desire within our soul for Him- for a purpose in this life. And when we discover that purpose and use it for His glory. our soul shines.
it's meaningless to say you're meant to be where you end up. It's arbitrarily renaming that 'where you're meant to be'. I don't believe anyone is meant to be anywhere. You are where you are, and end up where you end up.
