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.”
Happy holidays! Wow, the year has flown by. With the gift-wrapping rush, Christmas music, and festive cheer, it is hard to imagine a more rich and special season.
After the December busyness, I plan to take a moment to journal about the past year. It could be as simple as a bullet-point page with the year’s highlights, lessons learned or challenges surmounted. This meditation puts me in the right framework to face the new year with a smile, my new goals in hand.
If you have found more of your purpose this year, resolve to not let it go. Before 2019 begins, make a plan to embrace what gives you meaning.
Remember that even if you’ve lost your purpose, you can regain it through being love in action. We were meant to give and grow!
