Living Well on Purpose

Living Well on Purpose 

We are all here on this earth for a reason. We are not here by chance. We are here to bring something that only we can bring. It can be as simple as bringing a sense of humor, offering a helping hand or becoming a Nurse. It can be the work that we do or the lessons that we’ve learned and shared, but regardless what it is, it literally can only be done by us. 

What I have found to be true is that our purpose can absolutely not be fulfilled if we are not taking the time to care for ourselves and to meet our own needs. Avoiding self-care and taking the time to nurture our souls, our bodies and our minds is essential if we want to fulfill our purpose in the world. And the truth is, when we are working on this higher mission, we literally feel better. We have more energy because we have a destination and a goal. 

Sometimes it can be difficult to identify what your purpose even is. It might not be obvious or you might have been stuffing your strengths down for so long, that you can’t even remember what’s special about your contributions, but trust me, your purpose is present. It’s present from the day you were born, but somewhere along the way, it has gotten lost. 

When we take the time to really practice self-care and nurture our mind, body and spirit with diligence, we can reconnect with that essence, that tiny part of us that sees the world in a totally unique way.  Decrease the stress, get clear, and live optimally. 

Questions to ask yourself 

Is your day filled with empty obligations that only tire you out? 

What are the things in your daily life that make you feel good from within? 

Is your life set up in a way that you can do more of these things on a daily basis or do you more often feel stifled?  Does it feel like you’re here for a bigger reason? Who do you feel led to serve?
