On purpose

“What is my purpose in life?” I asked the void.

“What if I told you that you fulfilled it when you took an extra hour to talk to that kid about his life?” said the void.

“Or when you paid for that young couple in the restaurant? Or when you saved the dog in traffic? Or when you tied your father’s shoes for him?

“Your problem is that you equate your purpose with goal-based achievement. The Universe isn’t interested in your achievements… just your heart. When you choose to act out of kindness, compassion and love, you are already aligned with your true purpose.

No need to look any further!”

This photo was taken during a run not too long ago. Just some random heart along the trail in the park. No biggie.

Of course I don’t actually believe that. No heart sighting is random or even an accident. Just a gift… a love note from the One who loves us most. And a reminder of our true purpose.
