Finding purpose can be difficult sometimes when you're in survival mode.
When you're focusing on processing your day at work, working to pay your bills, and intentionally trying to maintain balance in your life. Between the mental and emotional energy used for all those daily processes, when do you get time to sit, reflect, envision, and connect to your purpose?
Well, you make time. Because you were meant to do something special that no one else can do like you. There's billions of individuals who sing, dance, professionally cook, speak empowerment into others, lead faith communities, garden, play a sport, etc. but no 2 people are exactly the same therefore what they do cannot be duplicated.
Walking your purpose and sharing your light is a gift to the world and one life dynamic remains spoken across faiths, religions, centuries and philosophies: the more you give, the more you receive. Living your purpose is your gift to the world and food for your own spirit.
Life continues to go on with or without you, but the life you do live while you're here, makes a difference. Never let someone make you believe anything different.
I had a conversation with someone who looks at the world from a big picture perspective. In a conversation about people who've impacted the world, they said, " I don't believe just 1 person can make a difference; its about what they do and the scale of their impact that makes a difference." I absolutely understand that and many people would agree, but one thing I know is that its ok to be an outlier. It's ok to believe you can make a difference. Every person we affect in our lives is in itself affecting the world. The person we uplift or tear down; the one's we empower or discourage from living their dream; we all make a difference.
This is why in the midst of life, you must MAKE time for yourself, your clarity, and your purpose. If you don't you are breaking the 1st Commandment of Self Love: Honor Thyself! Believe me, as I speak to you, I sure enough speak to myself!
There's vision, passion, dreams, goals, and a purpose in you somewhere. If you're disconnected from it, it's ok. Take the time to reconnect to yourself. Take the time to reconnect to you.
