The purpose that is you

Have the courage to ask yourself this question, and to answer it. What means more to you than anything?

Your deepest purpose is beautiful, powerful. It can also be terrifying, inconvenient, uncomfortable.

It’s easy to get caught up in chasing all the things everyone else chases. What’s infinitely more fulfilling is to invest your life in what truly matters to you.

Just knowing what that is, requires great effort, humility, honesty, and faith. Actually following through on it, asks even more of you.

Yet you have the opportunity to fashion real meaning out of the moments, to sincerely care, to make a difference. You owe it to yourself, and to all of life, to take that opportunity.

Choose the challenge of filling every day with caring, with love, with meaning and fulfillment. Choose the purpose that is you, and live it well.

— Ralph Marston
