Is the road upon which you presently tread
A treadmill that is killing you or
A path for which you are willing to die?
We who are writers write about that with which we most struggle. Admittedly, being on-purpose is my battle. It may surprise you that I write from weakness, not, particularly, from my strength.
This On-Purpose Proverb reminds me how easy it is to get caught up in the doing and not the being. How easy it is to let life’s minutes slip through one’s hands like sand in an hourglass. At times it seems the world is stacked against us – pulling us off-purpose. Other times – we do in ourselves with our failing and foibles.
Despite the challenges, I remain extraordinarily hopeful thanks to a deep-seated sense of purpose. Even when I know I am off-purpose, my purpose presses upon me that life is meaningful. Each of us is making a difference, especially when we are on-purpose. This awareness positions us to make a choice to be more on-purpose. The road we choose… now that is up to us.
