Sacred Purpose is the Solution

In a recent post, “Befriending the Inner Loser,” I wrote about how the fear of feeling like a loser haunts us.  We unconsciously define what it means to be a non-loser.  (It’s usually making sure everyone thinks well of us).  Then we invest valuable energy in trying to be perceived as successful and likable.

In “Befriending the Inner Loser,” I promised an antidote beyond befriending– an alternative to excessive people pleasing.

The antidote is Sacred Purpose. 

You arrived on earth with a purpose.

Your purpose is a rare color in a mystical kaleidoscope.

No one can be a better you than you.

The world needs you to be you.

If you focus on purpose and concentrate on being the best version of your true self, people pleasing falls away.  Your measure of worth moves from approval to authenticity.  “Did people like me?” becomes “Did I live authentically?”

Your willingness to live on purpose blesses everyone.

That being said, many people struggle with a sense of purpose.  If this is true for you, release the hypnosis of who you think you should be; consider what you love most; commit to making joy a priority; and you will find your purpose.

My purpose is to see the truth, say the truth and be the truth better than I can.

What’s your purpose?

    Today it’s noticing the strawberries invaded by my dog, singing about earthworms with second graders, procrastinating on tidying up my desk (11th week in a row at least), being a wife, being a mom, being a teacher, being a friend, being human. It’s loving the small universe that is here and wondering about the bigger one. It’s learning patience and clarity in communication, tolerating good enough, and deciding that the tasks of the day are done enough. Toss around some love and wonder and that’s all I need today.
