Find A Purpose To Serve


“Find a purpose to serve, not a lifestyle to live.” – Criss Jami 


My heartfelt thanks to Paul at Goal Habits who daily brings me a quote to begin my day ~ and it’s always a keeper!  (You know what that means right?  When you’re fishing and you catch one that is just the right size, what do you say?  It’s a Keeper!)  I know this is an older quote, but I thought it was perfect for today!

There’s a lot of mumbo jumbo about finding your purpose, being your best self and fulfilling what you are meant to accomplish by learning the lessons you’ve been given in order to live this life.  Truly, I don’t feel like it’s all mumbo jumbo, but I do feel like I hear a lot of people yammering about it, but not DOING anything about it.  Does that make sense?

I guess that’s why I like this quote because I believe that when you find your purpose to serve, whatever is necessary in your life will come.  Does that make sense to you?

So what is it that is your purpose?  Whom are you to serve?  Do you know?

I’ve met so many inspiring people through blogging from all different corners of the world.  What I adore is that I learn from each of you, something special that inspires me to live a more gracious life ~ to be lifted a bit higher than I was and to yearn to connect even more with others.

I’m floating these days, awaiting the start of the school year which as a former teacher, I always found exciting ~ on par with New Year’s because it’s a new beginning ~ although to be truthful, every Monday feels like a new start, every 1st of the month when I utter rabbit-rabbit is a new start ~ heck every dawn is a new start, don’t you think?

So today I’m asking you, what’s your purpose to serve?  Whom are you serving?  And if you don’t know, please think about it and with tomorrow’s dawn, come back and tell us!  Perhaps we can all connect even more and help each other!  Come on, find that Inner-Hotshot, you know the one who listens to her intuition, her gut and connects!

What’s your purpose to serve?

Shine On!

  1. There is much I don’t understand..but I hold the intention to serve and use my experience. I think it is about being my true self and drawing on what I have to offer that is unique..whatever I am doing or whoever I am with. Something like that. I kind of pushed myself and joined a group that is out of my comfort zone. They seem to honor what I bring.

  2. I’m finding more and more that responding compassionately to others that come to me for help is all I have to do – and I don’t have to control who, when, where, or how. My Divine purpose just keeps reappearing in different forms and I have become so open to each new opportunity. I used to think it was just one thing, and now I love the excitement of being ready, responsible, authentic and willing. Thank you always for your encouragement!!!
