If we’re not living our life with purpose and passion then what the hell are we doing? I’ve been pondering on that all morning. I wonder why some people are built this way and others built that way. As of yet I can’t find the answer. I guess my conclusion is, you do you and I’ll do me??? Sometimes I do get frustrated with the lack of motivation from others. We get stuck in all these useless, nonsense drama that serves no purpose. But I guess to some level it means something to those who are involved…with the drama. I wish people could see the bigger picture though. It’s mind-boggling for me when I see someone who has a very good life but they’re still unhappy. For example: Their childhood was pretty good. Didn’t lack much. They were loved. They never knew what it felt like to be without. Never walked to the grocery store in the rain. Never went hungry. Never someone’s backhand after a long day. Then as adults, they’re doing well. Still not much lacking. But they aren’t truly happy. Verses the person who experienced it all and for whatever reason they are actually really happy. Even though they still struggle till this day, they can’t help but be grateful to have made it through another day. Mind boggling I tell you! I don’t get it. I may need 2 years of psychology for this, LOL.
So the big question…Why? I think I know why 🙂 Lack of purpose and passion! I guarantee it. What are these people fixated on? Making more money to buy more things? Finding true love? Yes, I’m sure some things indeed hold some importance. But, a lot of it doesn’t as well. It leads me back to thinking outside of the box. More like outside of yourself. We work towards our goals. To obtain a life we’re comfortable with. So I like a lot of other people bust our freaken asses off! It’s a journey. But don’t forsake the journey. It’s really the most important part. It’s where all the magic happens. If you’re too busy worried about things you can’t control, then you won’t enjoy it. I mean, I too would love to find my soul mate. Like who doesn’t? But that doesn’t keep me from fulfilling my own personal dreams. I don’t spend my time feeling lonely and feeling sorry for myself. I mean why?! There is just so much to do! Self pity is ugly.
Reflection. Really look at your life, at who you are. What do you aspire to be? What would you like to change? Look at those around you. What do you see? What could make things look better? How about your soul…have you ever bothered really getting to know it? Things come in time. Love, big house, fancy cars…all those things come in time. Let me ask you this, if your main focus are things of that nature, what happens if you get into an accident and lose both legs? Or worse, you die. I mean, what kind of legacy do you think you would leave? How many lives have you helped? How much have you given and loved? I don’t know about you, but I want to leave footprints. A legacy that will live on forever. An amazing one. I’m here for a short time. I don’t want to spend it wallowing. I don’t wanna be mediocre. I strive to be the best person possible.
I see suffering all around the world. I just wanna help. My mission is to make a global change. If I die tomorrow, I won’t be able to do that. But at least I know I’ve done my part with the time that I’ve had. I believe I’ve made some impact in the lives of others, animals (still striving Vegetarian 🙂 ), and the environment. I can be a bit dramatic, yes. My friends make fun of me all the time. I wish they were more like me but like I said, I’ll do me and you do you. I’m hoping some of my obsessions will rub off on them. Regardless, I feel good. Making a difference keeps my soul alive. So I dunno, maybe if people focused on doing good for humanity, the world…just maybe they wouldn’t need so much “stuff.” Or feel so lonely because there’s not a warm body next to them every night. Stuff is nice. I like nice stuff. Warm body, eeehhh…I will wait for true love instead. I’d rather be alone than be with someone for the sake of not feeling lonely. And that’s probably because I am comfortable being alone. I enjoy my own company. I don’t mind my 32 inch box TV, lol. In time, I know. I’m not worried about it. At least not in a crazy, obsessed way.
I am still a truly happy and thankful person. Why? I believe it’s because I live my life with purpose and passion. There’s a whole world out there. So much to see and experience. So many people to help. Right? Right! 🙂 Anyways, this post was inspired because I was on Variety.com. They are celebrating Power of Women this month. Gosh these ladies are so inspiring. One day, I will be in a position to do great things on a bigger scale. Just like they have. But in the mean time, I will do all the little things. Anything and everything I can to make a difference. I really, really recommend you guys watching this. Show it to your daughters, sisters…everyone. All around powerful. Everyone can and will benefit from this.
