Have you ever got so caught up in the mundane, day-to-day hustle and bustle of life that you forget why? Why what, you ask. Why you do what you do. Why do you wake up every morning? Why do you work so hard day in and day out? I can say I’ve had this happen to me a many days, but over the past 5 years my why has gotten to be much clearer.
For starters, I have two beautiful little angels (even though they don’t always act like it) God gave me who call me mom. They are my why. They are my daily motivation that keeps me going. I do not want my children to look at TV and mimic someone they know nothing about simply because they are a celebrity. I want my babies to know what right looks like because they have a first hand picture of it every day when they see their mommy. I am so happy they are in my life to celebrate and be happy with me in the good. I am also happy that they are here to see my bad so they can see how I get myself back up and keep on going. My children are my why because they push me to work hard and be a better me on a regular basis.
Another reason why I do what I do is because about a year and a half ago I made up in my mind that I was going to live on purpose. Let me be a bit more specific, I was going to live in the purpose that God created me for. God created each and every one of us for a purpose. It’s up to us, however, if we are going to embrace that purpose and walk in it. I know one of my purposes in life is to overcome all the negativity in world. My assignment is to encourage, uplift, motivate and inspire people in all walks of life. I desire to help push individuals to not only think beyond their present situation but push them to live on purpose. How amazing would it be if everyone actually lived on purpose, if everyone did what they know they were created to do???
How do I plan to live on purpose? This is actually something I am learning each and every day. My first step was to start my website – letstalkaboutlife365.com, next I published my first book Let’s Talk Life: A New Perspective and to be honest I really do not know what my next move will be. I do know, however, that God knows my heart. While I wait to hear from Him for my next move, I’ll keep working with what I have. I do not care what it takes, but I will continue to live on purpose helping one person at a time. Loving one person at a time. Reaching one person at a time.
Now I leave you with this…what is your why? Why do you do what you do? Why are you working hard everyday? Are you living for a paycheck or are you living to make a difference?
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28 KJV
