What's your "life purpose"?

So many people are looking for it: their big life purpose.

Becoming YOU is your purpose. You’re the very purpose of your existence. Realizing what lights your fire and floats your boat — THAT’s your life purpose. What else could it be?

If it gives you true joy {not the seemingly happy-high that is fleeting, but the reliable, always-there kind of satisfaction} to…grow a family or a garden; to help people feel powerful … whether by fueling their bank accounts or working their bodies or writing their stories; to make people laugh, to commune with nature, to make things a little more beautiful wherever you go; to feed; to stir it up, to clean it up, to look on the bright side; compassionate citizenry, non-stop exploration, or pure pleasure-seeking…than, by God, that’s your life purpose!

Your life purpose is what you say it is.

Who could tell you otherwise?

I believe helping others is why I am here. When I am helping someone it lights me on fire! I wish I had limitless money to help others! Check my blog out at http://transitionsofmommyhood.wordpress.com .-= Jaime ´s last blog ..Who else needs adult time =-.
When you discover joy in yourself, you can never undiscover it- you share it with others wherever you go. If Joy is the purpose of Life, then sharing gives Joy its purpose. Embrace the Joy you share with others and the cycle continues.
