Affirmation for February 22, 2011: Life's Purpose

When a man does not know what harbor he is making for, no wind is the right wind.- SenecaThought of the day:What is your life's purpose? Does it remain steady throughout your life, or is it fluid, like water, and does it change with each phase? Some people define their purpose around helping others, and other people have visions of personal fulfillment that they pursue. And some of us are still looking for our purpose, or perhaps don't believe in one.The difficult thing about defining your purpose, even just to yourself, is that it forces you to take a stand. While some people have no problem with this, others may find it more difficult to know whether the direction they're headed is truly the right one. In times like these, it's often helpful to remember that we are the creators of our own paths. There is no template to follow, no set of directions dictating where you'll end up. A life's purpose is a creative endeavor, an exercise of both courage and imagination.Have a carpe diem kind of day!TeamDS
