    Comparing Journeys

    You may look at others and think, “you’re meant for so much more”. Although you may mean it in a sincere and complimentary way, underneath that thought what you’re saying is, “you should be doing more things like I am.” However, we are radically different people. We aren’t all here for the same thing. Once you begin to compare other’s journeys to your own, you forget that not everyone derives pleasure from the same things as you. We all have a purpose, how we articulate it, embrace it, or work on it is up to you.

    Flowing with Purpose

    Discovering your purpose is not a momentary thing, it can evolve in how it manifests. It’s something we tap into when we’re at our best. When you are expressing yourself as your best self, you’re living on purpose. It does not mean that it will always be put together in a nice package. Purpose can be grandiose, but you have to sit and you have to be quiet enough to figure it out. When it seems like life is magically unfolding, you’re on purpose. When it’s hard, you are probably not on purpose at that moment. There’s a flow with purpose that transcends beyond what you do to where you’re coming from. It’s your why.
