I believe every one is on this planet now, at this exact moment, in this exact place for a purpose. Throughout our lives, our purposes change as we grow. Just a few of my “purposes” in life have been to be:
An obedient daughter
A fun and loyal sister
A devout Christian
A good mother
A loving wife
A successful salesperson
I can’t profess to have accomplished all of those things to the best of my ability, but I did the best I knew how to do at the time.
So what is my purpose now? I believe it is to write. As writers, we can have a variety of purposes. They could be to entertain, educate, inspire, amuse, thrill, even to scare. I believe my purpose is to teach empathy through the characters in my novels; to teach compassion for certain groups of people such as battered women, dysfunctional youth, and victims of violence or prejudice.
What is your purpose?

to be peace, joy, love, and kind…. I’d like to melt this it into my art. Leave a trail of good wherever I go. To get up each day and live to “be the change I wish to see in the world”…. and if I fall, to forgive my blunder of ego and start a new again 🙂 have a wonderful day!
Writing and constructive conversations come high on my list. Those are personal. There are other purposes which I believe we all share, whether or not we admit it. Sue
Thanks for your response Sue
I think my purpose is to love. 🙂
Can’t argue with that.
