I finally figured it out.
So I turn 53 in 8 days and I am amazed at how long it took me to find out my so called purpose in life. My purpose is not always noticed, by myself but noticed by others. I have many talents and I have never realized how many people I have help, motivated, encouraged, and gave a sense of direction. I have been through my fair share of trials and tribulation, and they have been my stepping stone to learn and do better in life.
I have been that single mother, who has had children out of wedlock at an early age. I have raise other people’s kids, out of fear of them being put in a foster home and separated. I have dated the wrong man, who has put me in a bad situation that could have cost me my life. I have lost a child and at the same time, was unable to see a grandchild. I have been hurting financially as well as emotionally. But not everything in my life was bad or negative, and I learned from all of that which was. I received promotion after promotion, had great paying jobs. I met my best friend, who turned out to be the best husband I could have ever asked for. We put a child through college, while watching another get married and have a family of her own.
I say all of this to say that sometimes in life you touch people’s lives, without realizing how much of an impact you were on them. I realized that my purpose was my talent, and that I have multiple talents. I would not change anything in my life, because those mishaps made me the person that I am today. I can honestly say that I have and continue to live and enjoy my life. If I were to die tomorrow, I have lived a fulfilling life. You only have one life to live, make it count, stop worrying about how people may view you. Be happy with who you are and with what you have accomplished, and keep striving for better. Remember your purpose is not always visible or known, you may be living it daily.
