    The odds of me being born is incredibly slim,

    not only that but I am classified in society as "normal" along with this I also went through life's struggles and realized... I'm a lucky guy and I will never give up! if I died now I know I have made many positive impacts on people's lives and that is a privilege and a success...

    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.

    My purpose was given to me by God I believe

    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...

    "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...

    Do You Believe Everyone Has A Purpose?

    I tried to die once but I kept going

    because I found someone who was just like me. She told me everything and how she stands to fight for 1,000 of people a day for staying alive and I do the same.

    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...
