Finding Our Purpose

One of the very first realizations I had as I began to awaken from the daily haze I had been spending my life in was:

I had a purpose

 

When I opened my mind, listened to my heart, and let go of shoulds,
I could hear the voice of my purpose calling to me throughout my day.
In each moment I allowed myself to be present in, it became more clear.

I realized that my passions and purpose aligned but that my current daily life hardly reflected either.

I began to integrate and restructure my days with both passion, purpose, presence, positivity, and play; I found as I did this my life began to flow with a little more ease and the love that I am, began to grow.

So today I urge you to:

discover-your-life-purposedcg
~Open yo
ur mind~
~Listen to your heart~
~Let go of the sho
ulds~
~Feed your passions~
~Live your pur
pose~
~Allow yourself to be present~
~Keep a positive perspective~
~Remember to play~
~Love yourself and those around you unconditionally~

Starting to do these daily, even if at first you only do one, will surely help you to:

~Find your purpose~
~Be genuinely joyful~
~Spread the love~
~Create a life beyond your wildest dreams~
~Make a difference in all whose lives you touch~

So start today!  Why not? You’ve got nothing to lose!  With positive outcomes to gain, and no actual prep necessary (since all you need is you and the rest comes from within) it’s kinda hard to make valid excuses.

Just remember to:

Allow room for fun!

Some more whimsical words for inspiration towards finding and living your purpose:

I am one who seeks to help many.
I am a giving soul;
But this hope crushing, mind closing society
grips tightly on my bright, beautiful, believing heart
and truly takes a tremendous toll.

There is hope on the rise creating light for all to see,
And this luminous glow has become so very inspiring to me.
It’s warmth wraps me up in a hug and makes my spirit show with glee!

But so deeply I feel the brokenness;
it tears me apart.
Fills my eyes with tears and mirrors back to me
all my own worst fears;
and to tell you the truth
I could get wrapped up in all this turmoil for years.

However

My purpose is not to fan fear filled flames
It’s not to sit around and to pass on blames
It’s not to sourly and spitefully shout out shames
Nor is it just to go along with the games

My purpose is to let my voice be heard
It’s to write, sing or speak
through many a mindful word
It’s to allow my vibrantly bright light to be seen
It’s to be a courageously strong source so others may lean

It’s to keep asking questions,
start discussions,
and create literature for others to read.
To be a part of the ripple effect,
start waves,
and to plant each day a seed.

A seed that sews together seams of hope,
sparks remembrance,
and speaks forgotten truth.
A seed that uplifts,
helps us all to grow together,
and nourishes our eternal youth.

My purpose is important,
but so is yours;
and unlike most of our jobs
they shouldn’t be treated as chores.

With P’s and Love is a good way to begin.
Giving it Passion, Presence, Purpose, Positivity, Play & Love,
we’ll find our Purpose with a ginormous grin.

No worries if you’re not sure what is yours;
for we all hold them lovingly at the very center of our cores.
The pull you feel on the strings of your heart,
when you’re heading towards something that will break you apart
is a little nudge to yourself saying,
maybe there is a better place to start.

A place to do and be all that is you.
Where your yearning to bare your insides will shine vibrantly through.
For we all truly hold a breathtaking beauty on the inside;
even when we have let down others,
stolen or have lied.

This beauty we hold is love that is pure
a love so potent, no evil is able to endure…

Our truth
Our innocence
Our flame

Evil stands no chance
and is lost
outside of it’s game

So please believe in yourself;
listen to your wisdom within and step into your role.
Because together our purposes can help make our World feel whole.
Together our truths can connect all that is life;
soul to soul.

Questions to ponder:

What is your calling?
What are you passionate about?
How are you integrating your unique gifts into your life?
Are you honoring all you truly are in the motions you make?

I would certainly love to hear about how you are stepping into your role (your true self) and helping to connect with all that surrounds you!

Lots of Love, Hugs, & Sunshine,

-April 🙂
