A Fragile Purpose

Searching For One’s Meaning

Life can become very difficult at times because we often question our purpose and direction in life. To obtain big positive results often feels like an eternity away; it happens so infrequently that we easily lose hope. So we continue to search for meaning by questioning our thoughts, decisions and desires. Some may even believe to have a fragile purpose and that nothing will ever change their course in life.

Your purpose in life can only be discovered within yourself. You may have people who know you very well and help guide you, but the answers lie within you. We may all feel like we have a fragile purpose at times: whatever path that we’re heading down feels like it can go wrong at any minute.

And that’s another problem with modern-day society: too much pressure and expectations is stressing us out and increasing our worries about tomorrow for no good reason. We have no control over what happens tomorrow. We have no control over what is going to happen in 10 minutes!

So why worry about tomorrow or your purpose if life relies on constant change? You’re better off working towards your goals while maintaining a positive outlook on life. There is nothing wrong with searching for meaning, but don’t allow the process to unnecessarily worry you.

We often feel like we have a fragile purpose because we don’t see the results that we want. We continue trying year after year, only to glance at our watches and realize that we are one week away from new year’s eve. “Great” we tell ourselves, “another year has gone and I still haven’t accomplished X, Y, and Z.”

And if you don’t accomplish X, Y, and Z next year as well, are you going to continue being miserable? That sounds like a terrible plan. Rather, just go with the flow by knowing what you want in life, believing that you will achieve it and remaining positive in the process. And keep your expectations low!

If you don’t accomplish your goals, then there’s nothing wrong with that. You can either tweak them, come up with new ones or keep pushing forward. Don’t allow your mind to become your enemy, making you believe that you have a fragile purpose. Enjoy the process of life by staying positive and believing that things will turn out better in the near future!

Bring Purpose Behind Your Actions

Three passionate women lifting their arms with purpose

Purpose-Driven Life

Whatever you do, do it with purpose and passion! The beauty of being genuine and passionate in your actions is that you can really make an impact on others; a domino effect can promote goodness among the people around you.

There will always be leaders in life, but one or two here and there is not enough to make a meaningful impact in this world. We need people with strong character to step up to the plate and deliver goodness and strength. We need people who will inspire others to reach their maximum potential.

And whatever you do, use your heart and remain humble; there already is enough arrogance and cockiness in this world. If others become angry at you, you do the opposite. If others want to fight you, you start peace. If others wish you harm, you pray for them.

Become a role model for yourself and others; your actions will stimulate people way more than your words. Show yourself and others how good things are done. Teach yourself and others new information and productive behaviors that will uplift everyone around you.
