    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...

    Searching For More

    I feel like the world is trying to tell me something. I have an overwhelming feeling of purpose, but I can't find what it is. There's a weight on my heart that cannot be lifted until I figure out what I'm meant to do. I can't seem to find the answers that I'm searching for. I...

    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...

    My purpose was given to me by God I believe

    and I'm so relieved with this knowledge! I've always wanted to join the army and to see combat and I know it's not something a civilian can grasp but less and less people are doing the job and God said "when they evil doers rise up its to be cut down like grass" which when I...

    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...

    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.

    "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...

    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...

    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.
