I have so many topics to talk about, but I didn't know which one to start with. I guess this week we can delve into the whole "our life purpose" thing. Does anybody honestly know what they're doing anymore? I used to be the type of person who planned out my life, but it wasn't until my sophomore year in college when I got a rude awakening that that was an impossible task. You've probably heard the saying "...when life throws you a curveball." Well, now just imagine that instead of one pitcher on the mound there's at least five, AND ALL FIVE ARE PITCHING AT THE EXACT SAME TIME. That's the gist of it.
Multiple things need to be attended; there's deadlines, technicalities, and people who could care less (usually the bane of our existence). We take those responsibilities because so much is expected of us. I am speaking from the point of view of a millennial. Our motto has become: "life is too short." With so much added pressure at a young age, it feels like we're growing up too fast. Although it shouldn't be that way, it just turns out like that sometimes.
What is our life purpose? I guess we don't really know until we realize what we want. It's a confusing process in this ever-changing world with all its competition and glory. The survival of the fittest has become more of a mental game. We've all heard success stories that motivate us. "If that person can do it, then why can't I?" Aren't we supposed to learn how to adapt and grow in an environment we aren't familiar with? That whole question itself encompasses what life is. There's no room for excuses, but plenty of opportunities for failure. You make mistakes, learn from them, deal with them, and move on to ensure it won't happen again.
The point is that everyone is figuring things out as they go along. Sometimes it can take months or years to reach your goal, but as long you keep moving forward, you'll eventually find your purpose.
