What is a purpose and how does it apply to your life?

A purpose is defined by The New World Dictionary (2018),  as the reason that something is done or created or for which something exists (Agnes 2018).

If you understand the definition of purpose then you should understand how it applies to your life.  In case you don’t understand it means you exist for a reason, you have a purpose!

Do you think you were born just out of pure luck? Do you think your parents just forgot to use birth control that day? No!!! You have a purpose, the stars lined up just right at that specific time and you were created. Yes, you were a gift to your parents of course, but you are also a gift with a purpose for this world.  You were created for a purpose, you have a gift, we all do! You just have to take responsibility for that gift.

Whatever religion you believe in or whatever name you call your god, we can all agree that without that presence we would not be here. Our mother is the vessel from which our creator chose for us.  It was not just luck that your parents got together! It was not just luck that you were born on that specific day or at a specific time. YOU HAVE  A PURPOSE!!!!

Sometimes in life, we get sidetracked, we let our feelings hinder us from our purpose. Meaning, we let our feelings guide us when really we should be using our morals and values. Our experiences are what shape us, they prepare us for what we are destined to become. We just need to figure out how we would like to use those experiences. We either use them to grow or we use them as a crutch.

Many people resist the growth of becoming what they are destined to become. They take the life experiences and dwell on their outcomes, never taking responsibility for their own actions, becoming lost to their own doings. I encourage you to take responsibility for your life. Find your purpose, everyone has one! It is up to you to take what you have been given and help it grow, learn from your mistakes. There is something positive in everything, even when you don’t see it. Change your approach to the way you look at the situation and I promise you will find the positive in it.

I encourage you to find your purpose, tap into your greatness and watch it transform you into what you are destined to become.


“I truly believe that everything that we do and everyone that we meet is put in our path for a purpose. There are no accidents; we’re all teachers – if we’re willing to pay attention to the lessons we learn, trust our positive instincts and not be afraid to take risks or wait for some miracle to come knocking at our door”
