Discovering purpose

We all look for purpose in our everyday lives. What job should I pursue? Should I pursue a job at all? What bag of potato chips should I go with? Never the sour-cream and onion; They make my breathe smell bad.

Anyways, back to purpose. Before asking what purpose you could possibly have, given our obvious lack of presence/influence in this universe, ask why you’re asking about your purpose at all. Who are you asking?? Purpose is so often attributed to a ‘lost soul’ suddenly having a life altering experience in which they have been shown their purpose.

This is the wrong way to depict purpose in my view. Purpose in my opinion is simply discovering what you want in life. It doesn’t have to be given to you in a book. And it doesn’t have to be shown to you through way of a horrible experience (although that may often be the case).

The only purpose you have, is the purpose you give to yourself. If you want to help people, then you can make that be your purpose. It doesn’t have to be given to you, and you don’t have to sit on your ass waiting for a sign to tell you what you want.
Purpose, it’s yours for the making.

    My purpose is to be my own personal bad ass, among many other things that I have chosen. Lol.

    Sour cream and onion chips are delicious! Just pop a breath mint afterward.

      Haha now THAT’s a purpose! :p

      Sour cream and onion chips really are amazing… I just prefer to eat them in the privacy of my own home I guess..

    Within every new day comes with new experiences and whether we like it or not the surroundings we’re influenced by will slowly manifest our horizons.

    Every experience (whether big or small) is going to somewhat alter ones life and as our perception of life is continuously changing we have to connect to our sensitivity and be drawn towards a certain path that is “felt” to be right, rather than logically a good decision.

    As long as purpose is found through feelings of sensitivity from the heart and brings fulfilment through progress and achievement it’s not the wrong way to find it.
