Our conduct should show that we are on this earth to play a magnificent part in life’s drama, to make a splendid contribution to humanity.
Orison Swett Marden
You are important! You have a wonderful gift to offer this world. What is it?
Are you still searching for it?
In quiet and stillness you will know and once you know let nothing distract you from cultivating it and sharing it with others.
I had a intuitive feeling one of my blog readers needs encouragement. I hope this small piece of encouragement helps you to stay the course until you reach your goal.
If it’s worth fighting for, you’ll find no obstacle is too great, no ocean to wide to achieve your purpose. You’ll discover a way through, around, or over. The way is there, in front of you. So what if you haven’t found it yet. Don’t quit. Fight on. What you want is waiting for you.
Great minds have purposes; others have wishes.
Today’s Quote by Emerson on the Purpose of Life
The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Have you had tough times? Dumb question, right? We’ve all had our share of tough times. No one is a stranger to life’s storms. We’ve all had moments when our world turned dark, leaving us wondering if the sun will shine again. Life happens
Life happens in ways we don’t understand. The only fair thing about life is that it is unfair, unpredictable, and uncertain.
I believe, in spite of life’s unfairness, unpredictability, and uncertainty, you and I are here for a purpose. I believe our purpose involves other people. It doesn’t take keen insight to know we all need compassion. We all need to feel loved. We all need to feel needed. I know I find my happiness not in things but through my relationships with other people. I find a deep sense of joy when those I love succeed. I feel a deep sense gratitude when I make a difference in someone else’s life.
I’ve come to understand, any happiness I find occurs when I move from ME to We.
