We all come to a place in our lives where we ask the question, “What is my purpose?”. Often we spend time meditating and praying, ruminating with friends on the topic, wondering if we will ever “discover” that all elusive “purpose” that will give us satisfaction, completion, joy, comfort, that which will help us avoid that feeling of uselessness and banality. For none of us wants to feel ordinary, right?
I contend (and Oprah and Deepak Chopra agree – in fact, they proposed this to me– digitally, and I am choosing to embrace it) that
I AM MY PURPOSE.
No need to search my soul. No more anguished pleas to God to show it to me. By my very creation and by virtue of God’s love and mercy, I truly AM my purpose. I embody it in all I do. I live it with every breath I take. I feel it by my touch and being touched, through loving and being loved. Through every tear I shed and every burst of laughter that springs forth from my mouth I am showing my purpose. So I am stopping with the self judgment and self doubt. I am putting away my soul sleuthing tools. I am venturing out today and living my purpose, loving my purpose and being my purpose. How’s that sound?
