Motivational Monday – The Purpose of Your Life

What I want to share with you is the most important reason why we live.  “The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning” Mitch Albom, the author of Tuesdays with Morrie.

He was right. There are so many things in our lives that keep us pre-occupied so much so that we could easily have missed the affection that the other people are giving to us. The affection that we take for granted.

Take one step backward and look back, look at the people around you and reciprocate to their love and affection, and let them know that it meant a lot to you. Our purpose is to give meaning to everyone’s lives. Take your time reaching out. It’s more meaningful and enjoyable if you take your time.

  5. How timely to read this right after my hubby surprised me with a rainbow cake in the fridge this morning. It’s so easy to forget to show appreciation especially to our spouse after kids come along.
