We all want to be successful. To some, that means earning money, having nice things to show for their hard work, flashing labels and expensive jewelry. To others, it means something a bit more priceless…they want the feeling of being fulfilled. My quest isn’t just about having a successful site or doing celebrity interviews or bringing you new music. It’s really about inspiring others to live out their life’s purpose. It’s a waste of life if you aren’t actively trying to find what you were put on this earth for. I always had this weird thought that if I ever found what I was meant to be on earth for, God would take me back with Him (i.e. I would die lol!). So, I never rushed the process on trying to figure it out because I wanted to live longer (weird, right?). Then, like a ton of bricks, it hit me! There is a REASON why I am here and it’s my job to live each day like it’s my last.
The last couple of months have been filled with a lot of death of young people. The majority of those that passed were friends of friends or a friend’s family member, but I still took a lesson out of it all. I don’t think that people just die out of nowhere. I believe that their death is supposed to be a lesson and it’s a lesson that I think people, far too often, miss. Life is short. When I’m long gone, I want to have left a mark so that everyone that I came in contact with has some sort of memory. That pushes me to be a better person. Everyday I am thinking about how I can become a better person, a better friend, a better daughter, a better sister. Everyday, I tell people how I feel. Whether it’s a moment of brutal honesty or a moment of laughter…it’s genuine.
The moral of the story is…I’m no longer afraid to find my purpose in life because I think a part of my purpose is to be better. To be the change that I want to see in the world around me…and that kind of mark will last a lifetime!
