Is it hard for you to tear yourself away from work each day? If you didn’t make a dollar in your profession would you couch surf or dip into your savings to continue on your current path? If the answer is no then you are not alone I have polled many friends, family and colleague’s and asked this very same question and was surprised at the answers of many. Doctors have confessed they desired to be truck drivers, Accountants have confessed a desire to be hairstylist’s and VP’s of companies have dreams of entrepreneurship.. so what happened? The same thing that happened to me ,you and countless others and the reason why you are still reading this post “Life Happened”. Maybe it was the house, the car, early career decisions, or all the time and effort you put into your current path that has frightened you to change directions or maybe it is the fact that you are unsure of your purpose and don’t want to make a mistake.
To find your purpose listen to the clues and nudges of the universe and be obedient.
This is my first blog post today I professed at the beginning of 2016 to a select few of my closest friends that I wanted to start this journey but at the moment it was just a dream. However; I must confess the universe spoke to me several times this week , I tried to ignore the voice but the voice grew louder and loader and here we are one website purchase later excited about the possibilities of this new endeavor. Earlier this week I had U-tube auto play on and my first whisper came from the universe when Sadguru a famous Indian Yogi began to play in my headphones. As I began to listen intently he spoke on life’s lessons, immortality, dream making and so forth which sparked my interest however; what am I supposed to be doing I asked myself? Then all at once a series of events began to occur within a hour. First I decided to update my Instagram settings to public and a random stranger started following me. Next out of curiosity I clicked on the person’s profile which eerily reminded me so much of myself at first glance and upon further investigation I discovered she had a newly created blog exactly what I had been flirting with since the beginning of the year. In that very moment I knew I must be obedient and I immediately started my research on blogs and by the end of the day I had purchased a website.

Be the Change that you believe the World needs.
So what’s next? Don’t over think your purpose because the task can be overwhelming I know that I have always felt the most fulfilled whenever I felt as though I was making a difference in some kind of way. The world has so many issues that need to be resolved, police brutality, global warming,more innovative cell phones, a fifth lane on the expressway etc . The next time you identify a problem that you wish didn’t exist or speaks to your inner being; be present, it is the universe whispering to you and that is your life’s purpose.I see many people trying to figure out this thing called life just as I am so I feel the world needs a place to assist with that task so this blog will be my contribution to society and this unfulfilled need.
Capitalize on your Hobbies and Dream the Biggest Dream you can.
So now that you see what is needed in the world, have listened to the universe the next step is to go forth and begin to tackle that task in the most feasible way possible . However; dream the biggest dream possible and think of a way to to capitalize and make a living simultaneously while contributing to society. No one is going to buy into your purpose except for you so begin to take small steps yoursef and if you don’t have the means to jump head first start small but keep the goal in mind of eventually having your newfound life’s purpose be your main focus and career path in the future. . For me writing this blog today is my attempt at this ideal, I see a need and hopefully I can help someone and create a revenue stream as well in this endeavor.
Don’t conform to what Society says you should be doing at any stage of your life.
Yes you have a degree in Anthropology but if you see that the world needs more youth centers in your community research the problem , be obedient, be the change the world needs, capitalize on the issue and dream the biggest dream possible. To often we gloss over what our purpose in life is or what the Universe wants us to be doing tying to conform to society. We are told after High School you must go to college, you must be married by a certain age or take these steps to be successful in your career which is all rubbish. Just know there are no blueprints for a successful life we are all figuring things out as we go along. One thing that is a fact though is we get one shot in life and we should all live fearlessly, seek out our purpose, listen to the universe, dream bid and just try to at least make the world a lot better than how we found it.
What is a fear of living? It’s being preeminently afraid of dying. It is not doing what you came here to do, out of timidity and spinelessness. The antidote is to take full responsibility for yourself – for the time you take up and the space you occupy. If you don’t know what you’re here to do, then just do some good.- Maya Angelou
The universe told me there are a lot of people figuring this thing of life out just like you and I and there was a need for a space to share stories and lessons of life.The fear and societal pressures screamed :” You are not a writer” and that is not the path you have been on for the past 20 years. Nonetheless; I am listing to the universe, being the change that I see is needed, dreaming the biggest dream I can for this blog and no longer conforming and I hope my blog will be a tool for readers.
