Life Purpose

One could be lost because you couldn’t define your life purpose? Everywhere I turn, I read or am told I must find my purpose to be happy. What I mean by “life purpose” I am talking about defining a specific action that you can dedicate your entire life to. Purpose means doing something that has a positive effect on others, giving or sharing something that has a strong emotional outcome on yourself and others, or working to change a social structure that might not completely happen in your lifetime.

Is it really okay to not be okay?

Having a rough bad day, may be a major setback, being away from home. Sometimes, it feels like one thing goes wrong after another. And another, and another. You think you’re not allowed to cry, to admit that you’re not okay, one day you were feeling fine and the next day you feel depressed but yes it’s okay to not be okay.

Do we always have a reason for everything?

Because the things we do for no reason, are the most meaningful things we ever do. Life often gives us little moments like these. It is better to take them on its merit without questioning the rationale and enjoy while it lasts, after all life is short. They're what gives life meaning and they're what makes life worth living. They're what makes us human, even.
