Sunrise. Sunset. The norm of what we understand to be our everyday. In exception to places such as Alaska, who has six months of dark and six months of light, it is established to see the light of day and the moon by night. What’s the point? The sun’s function has a purpose and meets its requirement on a daily basis. It doesn’t question who it is or if it should do what it’s apt to do. Where am I going with this? Well, I’m glad you asked.
As a child we were asked, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” We responded with doctor, lawyer, teacher, fireman, etc. Interesting, I don’t recall anyone during my time of elementary to high school declaring they wanted to be president. Notice, this is, for the most part, pronounced more today than ever before. I didn’t know what I wanted to be. I jotted some things on paper when my teacher asked. My list was: singer, secretary and … the last one escapes me. Singing made sense because I could crack a note here and there (lol). Secretary, now, this was the ideal job for me. I learned how to type in the 7th or 8th grade. I thought it was the best skill ever; like, “who wouldn’t want to type for a living?” (lol).
How does one find their purpose? — Have you ever felt loss or know of someone who finds him or herself wandering aimless of direction? Has frustration ever overwhelmed you because you didn’t know where to look or how to begin? Perhaps, desiring to help someone else find their purpose but, seemingly, a dead end kept rearing its head.
Discovering yours and/or helping someone find their purpose first begins with a small voice. This voice is truth! It doesn’t lie to you. It never will! Situations will come up that will guide us. Pay attention! If you’re not paying attention to those “signs” (or voice) you will miss it because we can become caught up into what we assume or want to do versus what we should be doing. Seek out the information once the truth is revealed. Just because you discover the purpose doesn’t mean you automatically know everything that goes into it. You have to put the time in to hone your skills. Process will always take the time that it takes. It will ALWAYS depend on the individual and their ability to grasp said concepts.
You know, I have to be real honest with you! Those three things have happened throughout my years but I fought tooth and nail not understanding the importance of each step and its meaning. My truth (voice) was buried because my notations were centered on the wrong things. It wasn’t until a couple of years ago that a face (explanation, understanding) identified what had been. I’m a helper. As my Dad puts it … a liaison. I’ve always been in between situations; not that I chose them all, but because I carried myself in such a manner. Being a helper is vast! There’s no one that determines what that entails. If you recall a blog I wrote about writing, I share the story of my 6th grade teacher telling my Mom that I will have to work on my comprehension. Never in a million years would, or even could, I imagine writing blogs or anything else!
Recap: Listen to the voice of truth! Pay Attention! Seek the information to hone whatever the skill! … Liken unto the rising of the sun and the going down of the same, you will become what you are supposed to be!
