    Do You Believe Everyone Has A Purpose?

    Do You Believe Everyone Has A Purpose? For me I say Yes! As young children we see, hear, and feel something that makes us feel great inside. For most children when a certain something is discovered; to learn about, how to do, or see something that brings the good high emotions...

    Him..

    I honestly thought for years that I had no purpose. No reason to live. That I was just wondering aimlessly through the years. For no good at all. A couple months ago, I realized the wrongness of that. A couple months ago, I met him. Him. Such a beautiful soul...

    I think I found my actual purpose in life.

    Growing up I was always "Different" I never ever fit in with the general public ever, I always had this certain type of personality that made me stand out no matter where I went. I've had people tell me in the past that I am different, that I'm an individual, I don't let any of...

    "I think the purpose of life is to be useful,

    to be responsible, to be honorable, to be compassionate. It is, after all, to matter: to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all." I love this quote and I live it; I am walking the narrow path and realizing what God's purpose for me IS...

    I know I do. It's the drive of my soul.

    And I have multiple. And when I figure one out, I get a sense of peace. I enjoy the little bit of lazy day sunshine. I turn the music on and enjoy a glass of wine. I celebrate the feeling of rightness. But what else? So close I can almost see it. But is it real or an illusion...

    to love. to laugh. to spread peace

    and joy. to make you laugh. to share. to learn. to dance. to paint. to help my fellow man, every chance I get. to smile.... to tell all of you that the secret of life is not really a secret. energy reflects itself. what you put out is what you get back. simple metaphysics.

    A woman who walks in purpose doesn't have to

    chase people or opportunities. Her light causes people and opportunities to pursue her.

    I tried to die once but I kept going
