WARNING: A LONG ONE...Grab some coffee, tea...or drink of choice.
We all have a specific "purpose" and several years ago, when I not only "heard" that, but took it SERIOUSLY did I "get it" (no, not "my purpose" but the entire scope of what it means)
I was EXCITED to know WHAT my purpose was, because I never really "knew" what I wanted to "be" when I grew up besides a wife, a mom and a PTA member (hold your comments !!!!).
Insert screeching breaks....
Ummm...It is not like you stand in line, wait your turn and then be handed a slip of paper that tells you what your Purpose is and, "Duh"...it's not really what "we want to be"... (I thought I had to figure it out...)
Our individual purpose is "what we were created to be" and up until a handful of years ago, did I REALLY get it...and I had to "grow through" what I had to go through* to understand it all and now I get it. I mean, I got it...
My Purpose, that is...
and here is the thing, everyone else around you may be able to "see" it and "know it" and even tell you what "it", your purpose is, but until you REALLY get it, you don't...
Oh, I hope I have not lost you because here it is:
I am starting to feel, think and see things differently than I really ever have before and with that, I have to say...
It's not about scrapbooking...(duh)
or doodling.. (eek!)
or making things from paper..(drat!)
or baking things from dough and batter..(whatttt????)
or stitching things from felt...(gulp!)
or painting, stamping or really anything thing else....It, MY PURPOSE is about inspiring, influencing, teaching, reminding and loving all of the above and creating a community around it.
Insert falling confetti, letting colorful balloons fly, blowing party horns, clicking heels like a leprechaun, lighting fireworks..
It only took 42.75 years to figure it out..now I have 42.75 years, give or take, to work it.
Thank YOU for being part of my PURPOSE!
