We each have a purpose


Dayanara Contreras, Senior Writer

Having a purpose in life is one of the fundamental factors of happiness. Without it, you’ll live your life less focused, less efficient and you’ll often feel restless and stressed because you won’t feel aligned with the things you do.

I believe that everyone has a purpose. Some people exist solely as a lesson to others. It’s a choice whether you want to live life with a purpose or without a purpose. Purpose is a thing that comes looking for you just as much as you are looking for it. The day arrives when you realize your purpose is being served and it just happened rather than really being planned. But then again not everybody is destined to have a purpose. Look at murderers, rapists, pedophiles, and terrorists, for example. Reason can direct important choices, impact conduct, shape objectives, offer an ability to know east from west, and make meaning.

For certain individuals, an object is associated with job significant, fulfilling work. For other people, their motivation lies in their obligations to their family or companions. Purpose has consistently affected individuals and business, yet the interruption of the last eighteen months amplifies its significance: When we couldn’t go out so much, when we were disconnected from our kin and when our lives were flipped around, we were helped to remember what truly made a difference to us. Through their nonattendance or befuddlement, we were helped to remember what we really wanted, and wanted for a full life. Purpose has been brought to the highest point of the psyche for individuals.

Purpose is important in many ways. Purpose allows you to feel connected to the universe through the contribution of your gift. Purpose gives you a reason to wake up every morning, producing a goal to work towards. Purpose gives you a sense of identity. I believe that my purpose is to provide others happiness rather than my own.
