Once I found my purpose, my life changed... Forever.

Every person has a purpose… But not all have found theirs yet.

There is much to say about a person who is aligned with their purpose…
But other things need to be explained first.
1. One’s purpose can change.
2. One’s purpose is TOTALLY dependent on their life & their reality.
3. There are no rules to one’s purpose.

One’s purpose can be anything.. It’s not something to fear or avoid, it is something that should be paid MUCH attention to… Right now in the world there are too many people aimlessly walking around the planet,
without a mission,
a message,
a purpose
simply because they haven’t given themselves the time to think that they might ACTUALLY be purposeful. “I’m too this, or too that, so I’ll just ride on cruise & watch it all pass by. Merrrrrrrrr…”
We have learned that when we shine our light others try to dim it… so we only shine our light in safe places…
But my message to you is to shine at all times in all circumstances..
Don’t take it personally when others are blinded by your light & act out in ego, bow to them & whisper to yourself “I honor the work you still have to do, and hopefully my fire will inspire you.” Hermann Hesse said: “It is not our purpose to become each other; it is to recognize each other, to learn to see the other and honor him for what he is.”

One’s purpose doesn’t need to be extravagant (maybe that’s what people fear, “it must be extraordinary”).. No, it only needs to be something that makes sense to them.
When a person has a reason to get out of bed in the morning & be a part of an intention that they feel passionate about a fire lights inside them & can even drive them to make the world a better place.
This is intimidating I know…
But, really, it can be simple.

Maybe one’s purpose is to tell people they are beautiful, or to give offerings to the Gods, or maybe even one’s purpose could be to paint pictures or teach children or meditate or devote themselves to a cause or play guitar or smile or be a good listener or or or…. The list goes on..
Remember one’s purpose can always change & evolve too.

It just has to be something that brings magic to your day. This magic will manifest a new sense of awareness & devotion to life. Regardless of the depth of the purpose, the advantage of dedicating yourself to something you feel passionate about is infinite.

It gives you a reason to rise each morning, to meet each new face, and most importantly it lights a fire under your ass & asks you to keep going… This alone will bring new light into one’s day.
Having a purpose is like being in a good relationship- it always supports you & pushes you to be a better person.

The power of aligning with one’s purpose is immense. When an individual comes across your path & knows exactly why they’ve been put here on this planet it is powerful beyond measure. It actually can be a bit intimidating to see someone so aligned, driven & purposeful. We envy it because this is EXACTLY what each human being naturally is striving for: To be passionate about life.

Find your gift...
It is your legacy & the way you will serve the world.

"You will never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine."

It takes 21 days to create a new neural pathway in your brain (aka habit, ritual, pattern, etc.) I’m in the midst of my challenge to bring in a balanced serving of the things that are MOST important in my life.. Already, I have seen how setting an intention to my day can bring a new element of sacredness back into life.


So I challenge you:
What is your purpose??
How will you work towards it EVERYDAY???

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~Mark Twain
