Purpose

The word 'Purpose' has been on my mind as of late, and I have finally come to my conclusion on it... Finding your 'Purpose' is a flaming piece of crap.

Yep, went there. Said it.

Now, I'm not saying we all shouldn't be striving to be better people each and every single day. But I feel like most of us spend our entire lives trying to find out what exactly that is, only to feel like something is wrong with our careers and relationships in the meantime.

In longing to find our 'Purpose,' we are forgetting to be 'Present.' Put down your phones. Take a walk and actually enjoy what's around you. I was awoken this Sunday morning by my dog, who gets sick pleasure in licking my drool soaked pillow when I sit up. And you know what? I smiled.

Maybe it's just as simple as that, waking up every day and just trying to make it a good one, no matter what your circumstances may be.

No alarm sounds. No buzzer rings. Confetti doesn't shoot out when someone's so-called calling is met. So stop being in constant search of something, because you are here. And that is a gift unto itself.

Everything I've experienced so far, I have already dreamt up and lived out in my head. Don't blame things on the universe/fate/bad luck. You create your own universe. You create your own fate. You create your own luck.

And as for today, let's make it a good one.
