You are here for a reason.
Your birth was no coincidence. Everything happened at the time it needed for you to be here on this earth at this time. There is no one else who can fill your shoes. There is no one else who can be you in the way you can be you.
The people who love you, love you for who you are, there is no reason to pretend to be someone else or something else.
There’s parts of you that you don’t like, and there’s parts of you that you like but are afraid to share. Love the parts of you that you don’t like, and don’t be afraid to share the parts of you that you like.
Nobody is here by accident. All of us are here on purpose.
Your Purpose Is To Find Your Purpose
Everyone on this earth has a common purpose: to find their purpose. Once they find it, they can start living out there purpose.
Your purpose is the thing that makes you feel alive, makes you feel loved, and makes you happy. Your purpose comes easy to you and you don’t even have to think too hard about it.
This is because you were born to fulfill your purpose on this earth. You were equipped with the talent and gifts necessary to execute it.
That’s why finding your purpose is easier than you think: YOU CAN ALWAYS FIND YOUR PURPOSE IN WHAT YOU ARE NATURALLY GOOD AT AND WHAT YOU NATURALLY GRAVITATE TOWARDS.
Finding Your Purpose
When looking for your purpose, look within. The key to unlocking who you are and what you are supposed to be doing can only be found within you.
No one can tell you what your purpose is, only you know it. And trust me: others may lead you astray. They may think you are wrong about your choice and they may think they know better.
In away, their purpose is to challenge you to follow your purpose, despite what they say.
See them as the catalyst for your growth.
Living Your Purpose
Living your purpose is the reason you came onto this earth. When you are living your purpose, you are in alignment with Spirit, God, The Source–whatever you choose to call it.
Life becomes easy, effortless, full of joy and laughter when you live your purpose.
This does not mean there are no challenges, it just means that you see every challenge as a challenge and not as something “bad” or “wrong.”
Life is not a struggle when you are on purpose. This is because when you struggle, you are resisting who you are. You are resisting the reason you came on this earth, which is to be who you are at all times.
Everyone will say to you that you can’t possibly be who you are–it doesn’t work that way.
And I say to you: not only does it work when you are who you are, but everything falls into place when you behave in such a way.
The people who are meant to love you can’t find you if you are pretending to be someone who you are not.
Helping Others Find and Live Their Purpose
Part of your purpose, the reason you are here, is to help others find and follow their purpose. We are all in this together, and there is a reason for that: we all wanted to help each other live our purposes and enjoy the ride of what that felt like.
Someone in your life right now has a key that will help you unlock your purpose, and you are in someone’s life right now because you have the key to helping them unlock their purpose.
But if you both are not acting like yourself, if you both are resisting the flow of life, you will not allow that person to come into your life to give you that very important key.
You should always ask yourself: am I resisting life? Am I being myself, or am I trying to be someone I’m not?
Be the you you were meant to be. There is a reason why you feel inclined to express that which you wish to express. It is not by accident.
It’s less that there are “no accidents” it is more so that there are no “accidental people.” People do not exist by accident, and it is within them that every answer can be found.
You are here to be the you of your soul; but, you are also here to help others be the them of their soul.
If you are open to the journey, you will find your treasure. If others are open to you helping them on their journey, they will find their treasure.
But if you close yourself off, you won’t find what you are looking for. If you are pretending to be someone you are not, you will get lost and confused and those who were meant to assist you will not find you and, therefore, will not assist you.
Be you then, and help others to be themselves.
There is a great, beautiful light wishing to express itself through your words, through your thoughts, and through your beingness. Stop shutting it up inside of you. You are serving no one by doing so.
Let it all hang out. Let it shine through you.
All will suddenly make sense when you do.
That’s because there was a reason you are you.
