Finding Purpose

Finding purpose, true intrinsically rewarding purpose is becoming so hard to achieve. Letting go of monetary self worth and value based on what we have not who we are is the true path to finding that purpose. Today’s world makes this goal feel damn near impossible. Society values our belongings, social status, and “title” more than it values our work ethic, moral values, connection to family, heart, faith and drive. There is something clearly wrong with this picture.

Since we have been on our journey to refocus priorities, live on less, and find true purpose, I begin each morning with a wave of calm. A feeling I have never allowed myself to feel before- knowing things will be okay because no matter what happens there a few things that no one can ever take away from me. These are the things that really matter.

  1. You are a true treasure! Anyone that knows you is so lucky to have you in their lives. I have been overwhelmed lately with all of the negative in the world, particularly here in my home state. It is time to focus on the good. Thank you for reminding me! I love you!!! XXOOXXOO

  2. I had the same thought as Edward: You are a treasure! It is SUCH a good feeling to know that it doesn't matter what the world thinks, that everything truly will be great. I'm SO proud to call you my friend! 🙂 I love you!

  3. I think it's awesome that you are trying to be self-sustaining. I wish we lived closer, I would teach you to knit. I've made candles and soaps, knit, and spin my own yarn for years. I'll be keeping up with your progress here on your blog!
