The Way I See It
When we are born we have a purpose. Over our lifetime, we will have more than one purpose, big and small but all important in some way. As babies and children, our purpose is limited and as we grow our purpose grows, too. Some people have a grand purpose in their life, a purpose that will affect the world. Others have a purpose that is narrow in scope and few are impacted. Many have a little purpose or a purpose that looks insignificant.
The lives of the highly educated and intellectuals, people with great energy and drive who make things happen may give us the impression that their purpose is more important than the person who is teaching school, cleaning houses, raising a family, a mail carrier, but this is not true. Whether a person’s course affects many or just one is not the primary focus. The most important objective of purpose is to complete the task before us to the best of our ability.
We may think that those with a grand purpose like finding a cure for a disease, leading a country, inventing new machinery or tech devices are more accomplished in their purpose than someone with a purpose that appears less skilled or has less mastery to it. We may think some people are without a purpose; the very ill or disabled, uneducated or poor, jobless or homeless yet they too have a purpose. Sometimes those we think are without a purpose are there to give us our purpose to fulfill.
We may think we don’t have a real purpose, one that is important or imperative. But it may be the one thing we do without conscious thought, a smile or word for someone we pass on the street, opening a door, taking a meal or offering to do laundry for someone who needs help, these inconsequential things are important and purposeful. The way I see it…every day has a purpose, a reason why we wake up to a new day.
