“You were put on this earth to achieve your greatest self, to live out your purpose, and to do it courageously.” —Steve Maraboli
We often wonder, “Why am I here on this earth and what is my purpose?” I’m here to tell you that God has an important purpose for you, even if you do not yet know it. I was reflecting on this as I was eating my breakfast, and I began to think back to my childhood. When I was a child, things were not complicated: I went to school, and I played in my spare time. My purpose was simple: to learn and behave. I learned in school and church, but behaving was a bit of challenge at times. Though I was shy, I was also rambunctious and a bit of a tomboy. I loved playing in the mud with the boys and sometimes got into trouble. Eventually I grew up, went to work, got married, became more assertive, got divorced, started a career, and worked crazy hours—all of which led me to an important question: What is my purpose in life?
