Purpose

catchlight

What if your purpose in life wasn’t to DO anything? What if it was just to BE? To be exactly who you are. To make mistakes. To love. To laugh. To challenge the status quo. To create a family. To pursue your passions. To be present in every moment. To be thankful. To indulge. To drink with all your senses. To dance. To sing. To be unapologetic and own your beauty.

What if the only thing you need to do to fulfill your purpose in life is be who you authentically are?

What would that mean for you?

  1. That would entail me moving to the country and living among the grass and the animals, sleeping outside under the stars and bathing in the river….The closer I am to nature, the more authentic I feel. I always have to stop myself when I feel like I’m getting too wrapped up in the meaningless things in life…life really is too short to be anything or do anything you want.
    This is a gorgeous picture! Can’t you just feel her grabbing hold of that light.

    Sarah – I’m so happy to have found your blog. It’s very inspiring.

  2. Brandi, I love this. What a thought to ponder this weekend. I haven’t emailed you about the book yet because work got crazy so I put the whole project on hold until I get back from NYC, but I’m loving following along with your daily meditations via Instagram.

  3. To be honest… I have always felt that this is why I’m here.
    When people have asked me what my purpose in life is, I’m always a bit stumped and answer “To be here and learn”. I feel that too much weight is placed on careers, family, love etc. as someones life purpose, when really… aren’t they just by-products of living true to yourself?
