In the midst of the busy, and sometimes unconscious, lives that we carve out for ourselves, it’s easy to forget our Soul’s longing to exchange busyness for purpose.
In a world where the forces of average are grounded in generations of sameness, it’s not easy to choose heart over herd, and the journey can often feel like a solitary one.
But with experience, we understand that our greatest triumphs are forged in the fires of our greatest struggles. And in pursuing our reason for being in the world, we are never really alone.
“I’ve been with you for the journey.”
“I was there when you fell.”
“I was there when he told you it was over.”
“I was there when the doctor gave you the bad news.”
“I was there when you told me you couldn’t take it anymore.”
“But I was with you when you came into this world. And I know why you’re here.”
“I know your talents and gifts.”
“And most importantly, I know you can do this!”
“It will take every bit of courage you have!”
“And there will be times when you want to give up, when it seems like you cannot take another step.”
“But you are stronger than you know, so keep stepping!”
“Because I will never give up on you!”
The good news is that for as long as we have breath, we have the opportunity to find and live our purpose for being in the world.”
So take a breath, and take a chance.”
