QOTD: #77: Your purpose

There have been loads of discussions, all coincidental by the way, with some of my closest friends and some of my colleagues at my “9-5” regarding our passion and purpose. We been speaking about how and when does one find something they’re truelly passionate about and then how to start working on it, to pursue It.

One of my dearest friends sent this to me. She just knows my love for the written and spoken word and knew that this would be something I’d find profound and something I’d treasure. I had to share it with you. Please take heed.

The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away

~ THE William Shakespeare

All of us are born unique with a set of strengths and weaknesses. We all are born with a gift, I call it a superpower, that we can choose to use, to make the world a better place and by that I mean, to touch and change the lives of even those just around us or choose to let it go to waste.

Most people, creatives, don’t believe in themselves enough. Fear of rejection and self-doubt always tend to win and I never understand why.

Personally? I believe that the world needs allll of our superpowers to make it a better place; to inspire each other and to bring out the best in each other.

Whilst we may have love for similar things, each of us are unique and therefore will always bring something unique to the craft. So don’t ever sell yourself short and don’t ever think that there’s never enough room for you. The world we’re in is always hungry for authenticity. Your time is now.

I really hope that this post will inspire and encourage you to tap into that superpower and to start sharing that with the rest of us. You need to fulfill your purpose (:

Some super power thoughts from just an ordinary girl.

Love ❤️ and light 💡 always

Are you trying to be like the world?

Absolutely! 

Whilst our world is leading to a point of no morals,values, ethics or beliefs it is important for us to find our own identity and stand tall and grounded. As time goes on, doesn’t it seem like this gets so much harder to do. 

We live in a world quick to critisize you when you don’t do what it wants you to do. You are deemed as less or non worthy or cool in the eyes of those who measure their successes in others. 

It’s quiet sad if you ask me but that’s all I’m going to say about it because personally I’m trying to stay in my own lane.

What I do believe though is that Nobody’s going to remember you if your sole purpose is to be like somebody else ; doing what they do, wearing what they wear, speaking how they speak, believing in what they believe or even driving what they drive and just cause! 

I think the most attractive and strongest people are those who remain true to themselves even when the world tells them they’re crap or not worthy; who are comfortable in their own skin even when the world sees but doesn’t acknowledge their sparkle and those who measure their successes on where they were yesterday and doesn’t see life as competition or race. 

Religion is important, morals, values, modesty and ethics is important! And it is okay if you don’t fit in…it means you’re doing something right.

Go out there and be the best version of yourself. You are BeYOUtiful, you are YOUnique and you are worthy! There is only one you…rock it 😎
