A Plethora of P's / #4: "Purpose"

“To every thing, there is a purpose…”

Ah, but what’s it all about? On a grand scale, few of us are lucky enough to know with certainty what our life purpose is. It’s interesting to ponder, but much of the time that kind of purpose seems more fated than planned.

On the other hand, there’s practical purpose, like getting an education or giving the car an oil change. Useful things that can smooth life’s wrinkles or deliver a better shot at living well.

Then there’s the daily, more personal kind of purpose that comes from deliberate, purposeful thought. Acting with purpose. Speaking with purpose. Changing-the-course-of-a-moment kind of purpose.

Purpose is really just intention. And with some muscle behind it, it can breed greatness. With consistent, conscious positive thought, it can BE greatness.

Moment by moment, purpose lies waiting to be tapped; ready to be tipped and poured.

    I’ll have a double please. Finding purpose is an evolving process and sticking with your guns takes initiative and resolve. Kudos for this post my friend and love the illustration. It’s so very positive in a world where it’s difficult to find positive. Cheers, Rand
