What do you think your purpose is in life? Is it to be a good parent, a good friend or a good spouse? Is it to achieve success in your career or climb the corporate ladder? Is it to make a lot of money or have a big home and a nice car? Is it to volunteer for some worthy cause? I happen to think our purpose is much simpler and much bigger than any of those things. I believe that each and every one of us was born into this life to give love and to receive love. I don’t think it matters how we go about doing this, it only matters that we do. We can do it through our work, we can do it in our homes, we can do it however and where ever we go and in many different ways. Sometimes, however, I believe people put too much focus on what I call the insignificant details of life. They focus on things that don’t really matter and get caught up in the rat race. They let their jobs or their house or the stuff they own define who they are – wanting more and having more or saying they did more than somebody else is the objective in order to feel good. Yes we need food and shelter and usually some form of income to obtain those things, but how much do we really need? And would you rather have more stuff in your life or more love in your life? I pick the latter any day of the week. How about you? How do you define your purpose in life and how do you go about achieving it?
- I believe our ultimate purpose in life is to give and receive love. If we live our life doing that, no matter what else we do, I think we can say we lived a good life.
