Life purpose and destiny seem to be questions that occupy everyone’s minds at one time or another. I’m grateful for all my experiences but lately I’ve had this urge that I haven’t yet found my mission in life. You know, something that I can be successful at and still fulfill my desire to help create a better world.
Since each of us is truly unique and have experienced life in a completely different way, I feel that we all have something to contribute to society. You might call it a piece of enlightenment or the “death bed confession,” but I’d like to see us reveal our knowledge, so that others may benefit from it. So instead of waiting until you are ready to transition from this life experience, why not contemplate what you have to add to other people’s lives right now!
Hypothetical Question: IF YOU ONLY HAD A SHORT TIME LEFT IN THIS LIFETIME, WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU WOULD LIKE TO PASS ON TO SOMEONE ELSE?
*Is it something that inspired you?
*Is it a passion that you would love to teach others about?
*Is it something that you would never do again?
*Is it something that if you had made a different choice, would have changed your life completely?
*Maybe your grandmother or grandfather passed on a great insight that helped you!
*Maybe you have a fear that you were able to overcome!
*Maybe it was something that was very painful but taught you exactly what you needed to learn at that time.
I know when I started reflecting on this question, I realized that rescuing two shelter dogs was one of the best things I‘ve ever done in my life. It’s only two lives I was saving, but when you put it in perspective, that you are only one of many who does this, it’s an awesome feeling. Yes, it meant a lot of work and dedication, but being able to gain their trust and build a loving relationship has been amazing. They also get me outside in the fresh air, bring laughter through their crazy and adorable actions, and bring more energy into the house.
Here is a picture of my two pups 🙂
So you see this is just a small example of what I’m talking about. It can be something short and simple, an article, a short story or anything that you would like to teach or pass on to others.
I’m hoping to collect many personal responses and combine them into a book or journal that can be shared by all. If you feel inspired by this question or it resonates with you, I would love to hear your response.
