“The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.”~Mark Twain
Many people go through their lives asking the age-old questions; why am I here, what is my purpose?
It is most certainly an important day when we receive the answer to those questions BUT have you considered the possibility that there is more than one “why”? What if instead of looking for your purpose, you discover you are already living it each day?
We are all many things to many people. We influence countless lives because when we touch someone’s life, they touch someone and then they touch someone and it goes on infinitely. Every word, deed and touch has purpose but we may never be fortunate enough to find out. It isn’t until we embrace and love ourselves that we open up to our true purpose.
We each have our roles to play.
You are powerful beyond measure whether you realize it or not but not one of us can physically be everywhere assisting every single person on the planet at any given moment. We each have our roles to play. As we embrace those roles we discover our purpose.
We may not receive an award for our role. Our “why” might not come in an epiphany. We can recognize how our role affects the lives of others by simply being present and aware. We have the opportunity to affect a life by looking into someone’s eyes and acknowledging their presence.
Several years ago I did a reading for a lovely woman. When I looked at her clairvoyantly I saw she was surrounded by dark energy that was not her own; Underneath was a bright, creative, colorful soul. She didn’t tell me much prior to our session other than she felt stuck and unable to create. She also didn’t ask too many questions. By the end of our reading she was much brighter but I had no idea how the session dramatically affected her life.
A few years later I received an email thanking me. Her words, filled with heartfelt gratitude and enthusiasm, literally jumped off the page! In her email she said that prior to our session she felt isolated, alone and that she was contemplating suicide.
She said that during our session she felt safe for the first time in her life and in that safety she found hope. From the hope she reached out and found a therapist to help guide her through a very painful journey. The best part of this story is when she shared the joy of her “new” life.
She was happy in her marriage and felt love beyond “anything she could have imagined”. She got pregnant and gave birth to a gorgeous daughter and the demand for her art was off the charts! I read that letter with tears of joy and my heart grew as I realized a part of my purpose.
Who knows what this woman will go on to do? Who knows what her daughter will do? Who knows if her art will inspire another artist. Maybe she tells her story and gives someone else hope.
As we move through the world our purpose reveals itself in many ways. We will probably receive many ‘whys’ during our lifetime. We may not be able to put into words our exact purpose but we do know what feels good. Our purpose may be revealed in a series of seemingly small validations, or it might come all at once.
Not all of us are destined to write a Pulitzer Prize winning novel, receive an Academy Award, or discover a cure for cancer or AIDS BUT at some level we each play a very important supporting role so others can fulfill their purpose.
Who knows if the person you inspire will take that into the world to inspire someone else and so on. Who knows if you gave hope and saved a life as you smiled at the stranger on the street. Who knows if you brightened the day of the next Steven Hawking or Neil Armstrong.
Each of us has a purpose. Embrace your role and do what you do well. Do it from the heart. Do what you do best for THAT is your purpose!
While I’d like to think the “most” important day is when we find out why, each day is important. Live your life with purpose on purpose!~Shine Your Light Debbie
