Life, Purpose, & Love
To be alive is a wonderful thing… It is a blessing to open your eyes each morning and view the beautiful world around you. So many things to do…… So many new people to meet…… Life is somewhat like a reoccurring dream that starts at the same time each night, yet ends different each time you are about to open your eyes……… Life is beautiful………But are you enjoying yours?
For quite some time I have always heard that Life is nothing without purpose. I always wondered what that meant, and in all honesty, I believe that still till this day I am somewhat confused on the meaning.
: the reason why something is done or used : the aim or intention of something
: the feeling of being determined to do or achieve something
: the aim or goal of a person : what a person is trying to do, become, etc.
Each night I go to bed.
Each morning I rise up again.
But what for?
What is the reason for my existence? What am I supposed to do?
What is your purpose in life?
I firmly believe that everyone was created for a reason… And yes, it may be true that some of us may never truly know that reason, but some of us will find out.
Maybe your purpose in life is to rejuvenate our youth and help them to excel beyond those in the past.
Maybe your purpose is to find the cure for diseases that have ravaged so many individuals’ lives.
Maybe your purpose is to be the inspiration that your little sister or brother needs…….
Or maybe…just maybe…. You are like me…. And you just don’t know yet………
At the end of the day, you must find your purpose in life, and once you do that I believe that ONLY THEN will you begin living. Living is when each breath is valued. When each new sight opens your eyes to things you never knew. Living is loving your life and every tinny tiny moment of it………I will be the first to admit that I am not yet to this point, but I am close. I love my life, yet not enough to appreciate it fully. Therefore, instead of truly living….. I exist……but I want to do more than that.
Today I vow to grab life by the ropes and go on a journey that I could only have dreamed of. I will find my true calling and realize why I am here and what I am meant to do. I will cherish each sight and each breath. I will live my life and I will finally feel the true love that can only arise once you fully love the person you see every day……… yourself.
Life is nothing without purpose…..if we had no purpose we would just walk around the earth doing nothing productive….not making a difference……..we would basically be a hallow shell of a human……….
I guess what I am trying to say is, now is the time to stop existing and start living. Don’t let doubts hold you back from your true callings. Do not be afraid to fail a few times. Find your purpose in life and fall in love with yourself. Appreciate your life and every single second of it…… Life is so beautiful………..and I don’t want you to finally realize that when it is too late.
Have a great day,
