What’s Your Purpose

Here I am with yet another road trip influenced article. I was analyzing different objects on my way home from work with the thought of purpose on my mind. Everything has a purpose, some things have more than others. I was trying to figure out mine and thinking what purpose others might have.

Are you a highway? Does your life feel like it’s moving 90 miles an hour all the time? Do you scramble from place to place,, From work, to school, to your kids daycare, home to put food on the table? Whatever it is, I assure you that’s life. It’s a grind many of us may be apart of in order to create an efficient life. Good things will come. Just keep on truckin.


Are you a dead end? Do you feel lost and not know what to do with your life? Perhaps you can’t find a job or maybe you don’t like the situation you’ve been put in. That’s okay, there is always a new path. The turn around only goes as far as your willing to drive though. Don’t let an obstacle stop where you are headed.

Are you sitting on the shoulder? You go by day in and day out needing attention. Someone will help, but don’t sit around and beg for attention. Don’t post your problems on social media for the world to feel sorry for you. Reach out and find help if it’s what you desire. People have a purpose for that, you’re never alone.

Are you the bridge? Do you keep others on the right path? If you are I have hope that you have the support to hold yourself up. I also praise you because you make a difference on others. Floods will come and try to hold you back, but they don’t last forever.

Are you the sad piece of litter on the side of the road? Guess what… people come along to pick that up. Hang in there. One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Your trip isn’t over.

Like many of you,I feel like all of these things sometimes. No matter the case I’m satisfied. They all have a purpose in life. You have a purpose. Maybe you thought this post would tell you what your purpose might be, but that’s no simple question. I hope this brings thought to your mind and serves as a guide to help you take no day for granted. Life is filled with twists and turns, speedbumps and stop lights. Fine your purpose.

  1. I think that at different points in our lives, we are all of these things. I can think of times when I was the litter, and other times when I was the bridge! Depending on where we are in our lives, I think our purpose — and how we feel about our situation — changes.

    Nice post! 🙂


  2. Hi there 🙂 I absolutely dig your analogies. Thank you for the encouraging words. Lately I think I have felt a little bit of everything. Some days the bridge, other days the litter, whilst other days the need for speed. All the while, I do believe strongly that we have a purpose. Life is definitely filled with a whole bunch of fun stuff and we have the opportunity to live each day with purpose and intentionality. Thanks again for the lovely reminder! And keep up the writing. Once again, I really enjoyed it!
