When I think about having a “Super Power” my mind goes to something or someone that is extremely influential, very dominant, intentional, and beyond powerful. As I look back over my life, my mind wanders to what my actual purpose is and I conclude that my purpose is so much bigger than anything I could ever want personally for myself.
Besides my purpose being to glorify God, I am convinced that my purpose involves more than leaving a legacy for my own child who passed 27 years ago, or my husband, or my parents as they have passed and are resting in paradise. My purpose has evolved over the years, or so I thought. Looking back, I see how I was destined for my purpose long before I understood anything about having a purpose.
My purpose entails living my best life so that I can show generations behind me that life is really worth living, enjoying, and sacrificing for. Being connected to so many Millennials and Generation X adults illuminates how life has changed so drastically for them compared to my own time as a young adult. I’m here to testify that you can be anything you want to be.
Focus, be intentional, don’t compare your life to others, and go after what you want; do not live in your regrets and remain true to who YOU are.
If you didn’t get something right the first time, (that was me many times) do it over. Don’t give up and don’t give in. Use a different strategy, or maybe you need to shut out all the noise. It’s possible that you need to unlearn some habits that cloud your purpose, or you could benefit from having a mentor; or do a self assessment which might reveal that you are getting in your own way. Whatever the obstacle, make adjustments until you’re sure you are walking in your purposeful life.
Enjoy your journey along the way, live the life you dream of, and don’t forget to TRAVEL as it opens up doors for you and often helps bring clarity to your life.
Follow the simple rules in life, for only then will you perfect your purpose!
