“You’re afraid to die, and you’re afraid to live. What a way to exsist”- Neale Donald Walsch
It’s so easy to get caught up in the routine of life, doing the same thing every day. As weeks go by, the months and years blend in and before you know it, we are on autopilot simply exsisting just to get to the next day. We anxiously wait for the next weekend even as Sunday ends. We live in a fast-moving world where we expect everything to happen with seconds and even as the seconds pass we become impatient.
Life is meant to be lived, with purpose. We all have a purpose in this life, a specific purpose to fulfill and it is so important to find that purpose. If you have no purpose, what’s the point anyway?
How do you find your purpose, you say? Be you!!
Find your strengths and use them for the good of others. I cannot tell you enough how helping someone else in need will give me more strength and meaning to my own life than anything else. Listen to people. Live life consciously. Put your stamp on this life, and make a difference in somebody else’s life. Slow down and laugh a little. Live your life in the positive and make things happen instead of waiting for things to come to you. Grow, learn new things and don’t become stagnant. Challenge yourself and expect only the best from yourself.
As I walk through my life, even with chronic illness I refuse to simply exsist. Although my own conditions are unfavorable to say the least, I refuse to coast through just to get to the next day. I can choose to accept my unfavorable conditions and let them control everything I do, or I can rise above and live my life to my full potential. After all, I only have one shot at this life. Only I have the power inside to control what I allow the world to let me believe I can be. Knowing that God already has set aside a purpose and plan for me, I choose to rise above my challenges and fulfill his perfect plan. What about you?
For I know the plans I have for you, ‘declares the Lord”, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
