Living life with a purpose is key. Having a strong reason to get up each day and take action lends itself to fulfillment. Too many of us are aimless, or just haven’t done the internal work needed to understand what truly drives us, what makes our hearts race and adrenaline flow.
Often, we feel it when we are young and let it go, explaining it away as merely idealism. I believe idealism metered by wisdom is the makings of purpose. Personally, my purpose is to make a meaningful impact in the lives of my family, my vendors and my community. It may sound idealistic or far reaching, but I have the wisdom to understand that I will continue to encounter many obstacles and setbacks, but the clarity that comes from having a purpose helps to drive me forward. Take time to find your purpose, the reward of doing so is worth the effort.
