A Matter Of Commitment
So many wander the earth searching for purpose.
Because a purpose driven life is a meaningful life – and meaning is what ultimately makes life worth living.
It’s the reason you wake up in the morning and do what you do.
But so often we forget the ‘why’.
We get so fixated on the ‘what’ and ‘how’ and allow the ‘why’ to simply fall by the wayside.
We passively fall into habits and become disconnected and disenfranchised.
Not longer experiencing the fruits of our labour –
No longer experiencing 'what we do' as a subset of something bigger.
But if you’re at a loss about where you can begin to re-establish purpose, don’t be.
Because purpose is simply a matter of commitment
And during the course of the day, it’s a set of micro-commitments you make to yourself.
Waking up on time, brushing your teeth, making your bed, going for a walk, reading.
Because holding yourself accountable and up to a standard, is purposeful enough.
Doing the things you know you should be doing because they are the right things to do.
Because they are good for you or serve a greater good
It’s the failure to commit your life to something that is good, when purpose is actually lost.
And although ‘what is good’, may be subject to interpretation, that in itself is a good conversation to have and a good place to start.
