Honoring Our Gifts (17)In one of the earlier posts we talked about being grateful for life itself. And yet what is life without a purpose? It seems to me that one’s purpose in life changes as one lives through it. The purpose of life is very different for a young person pursuing their education versus an elder with generations of younger folks looking to them for guidance and wisdom.

When I was younger I wanted to have fun and connect with friends to experience wildness. My purpose was to find someone special to spend time with and possibly start a family. As I’ve grown my purpose for a while and still is to some extent to understand more about how stuff works and to earn a living. Once I’m older my purpose will shift again to elder things.

Honoring Our Purpose

The gift of purpose is something that many creatures get to take for granted. They live their lives and their purpose is to take up a niche in nature and perpetuate the cycle of their lives in order to carry forward genes to the next generation. We humans have the ability to consider our place in the world and what a gift it is to know our purpose.

What are the purposes you’ve had through your life? What is your purpose now?

Take a moment to honor the gift of your purpose. Imagine all the people who are affected by you fulfilling your purpose.

Simple ways to be grateful for our gifts. And of course, you don’t have to stick to our calendar – you can be grateful for anything that comes along today. This is just a prompt.

I’d love to hear what you are honoring today and how you are doing it. Check in with us and leave some comments.
