Thoughts about life’s purpose…
“Each of us has a unique purpose…
Your life purpose consists of the central motivating aims of your life—the reasons you get up in the morning.
Purpose can guide life decisions, influence behavior, shape goals, offer a sense of direction, and create meaning. For some people, purpose is connected to vocation—meaningful, satisfying work. For others, their purpose lies in their responsibilities to their family or friends. Others seek meaning through spirituality or religious beliefs. Some people may find their purpose clearly expressed in all these aspects of life.”
And these quotes simply motivate me…
“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” — Gandhi
“A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.” — George Bernhard Shaw.
“We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty.” — Mother Theresa
“In seeking happiness for others, you will find it in yourself.” — Unknown
“God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.” — Reinhold Niebuhr
My concluding thoughts….
Today is your opportunity to live well. Decide what you are going to do with it, and then do it.
Today is your opportunity to make a difference, in your own life, in the lives of others. Seize that opportunity and follow all the way through on it.
Today is more than just time to be passed, situations to be endured. Today is when life is real, when possibilities are present, when fulfillment gets done.
What a waste it would be to let all that slip by without something distinctive to show for it. Embrace your potential and then do something with it.
Today will have challenges, to be sure. So be sure to make those challenges count for something good and worthwhile.
Feel the purpose that lives within you. Today that purpose has all sorts of great things to do.
