! from hearts to hands: A Life Purpose
"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around." ~ Leo Buscaglia

A Life Purpose

"One person with passion is better than forty people merely interested." ~ E.M. Forster

I Believe … each and every single one of us has a purpose in this life.

Many of us commit to endeavors and professions that we never consciously planned on pursuing and attribute our lives to being shaped based on circumstance. Others drift through their lives feeling directionless. Finding your purpose can help you realize your true potential and live a more authentic and fulfilling life.

How would you define your life purpose? I believe that it’s something that you focus on and move toward with intent and passion. It allows you to express your creativity and intelligence, to live in accordance with your values, and to find the joy of simply being yourself.

Discovering one's life purpose requires taking a close look at the interests that you have both explored and unexplored. During your search take stock of your beliefs, values, strengths, and passions. One’s love for a pursuit gives it meaning. I’ve been told that when you wake up eager to face each day, feeling both good about what you do AND also about who you are, then you’ll know that you have discovered your life’s purpose and work.

For me? Well, I have a persistent little inner voice who's becoming more and more outspoken.  The 'how' has always been left solely up to me; though at times my same inner voice whispers like a little birdie in my ear. 

Would you like to join me on this journey of discovery?
