“What is my purpose in life?” I asked the void.
“What if I told you that you fulfilled it
when you took an extra hour
to talk to that kid about his life?” said the voice.
“Or when you paid for that young couple in the restaurant?
Or when you saved that dog in traffic?
Or when you tied your father’s shoes for him?”
“Your problem is that you equate your purpose
with goal-based achievement.
The Universe isn’t interested in your achievements…
just your heart.
When you choose to act out of kindness,
compassion and love,
you are already aligned with your true purpose.
No need to look any further!”
“When you replace
‘why is this happening to me’
with ‘what is this trying to teach me’,
“Try to make sense of what you see
and wonder about what makes the universe exist.
and however difficult life may seem,
there is always something you can do,
and succeed at.
It matters that you don’t just give up.”
~ Stephen Hawking more
“Should you ever find yourself
the victim of someone else’s bitterness,
smallness, or insecurities.
Remember, things could be worse.
You could be them.”
“Act the way you’d like to be
and soon you’ll be the way you’d like to act.”
~ Bob Dylan more
what you’re looking for is already there.”
~ Aretha Franklin more
“Unlike an elevator,
no one can push your buttons
without your permission
once you understand what triggers you.
Self-knowledge is power.”
~ Peg Streep
