Sooo, I just woke up. It’s Thursday morning and I am still a little bit sleepy. But, the birds are chirping, the sun is bright, and despite the news I got last night, I am hopeful and feeling quite positive about my future.
Often I think about the purpose of it all. The reason I was created. I wonder what the purpose of life is several times a day, every day. I feel as I get older that purpose will be revealed to me more and more. I’m only 21 years old, but God is calling me to make some big changes in my life.
There’s this empty feeling that I’ve had for quite some time now. It’s a void that I’ve tried to feel with people, material things, and desperate attempts to make others happy.
I watched a Trent Shelton video and it was amazing. He explained that we are enough to be appreciated, to be respected, and to be loved. That’s when I realized:
There is no better feeling than to serve. Selflessly. Genuinely.
My purpose on Earth is to love and serve. Period.
I will love without an ego because we’re essentially all here just trying to make it.
I will serve with a genuine concern because a life all about myself is meaningless.
We don’t have all the answers. Not one of us.
Humans want to be happy and love whom they wish to love. This is our purpose!
Knowing that each human being here is just on a journey of self realization helps me not to hold grudges. Forgiveness is key for a happy life.
So, I embrace and welcome adversity. I love those who’ve hurt me. I love those who’ve abandoned me. Why?
Because I love myself too much to live with a broken, confused, and bitter heart.
