Have you wondered What is your Purpose?

I beleive everyone was born for some reason...Everyone has a purpose. Have you ever wondered what you purpose is? I have. My Mother had a very difficult time carring me and was even told by the doctors she needed to terminate, but she refused. I was born full turm and had no problems. And I have alway felt like there was a reason. A reason she didn't loose me. A reason I was born. But here I am 46 years old and still wonder what is my purpose? I had two beautiful children and both are well and on there own. I never had a good relationship and failed in one marriage and now married to a man that goes to bed at 5 and gone to work at 5am. I sit alone most the time, which gives me alot of time to think. I have never made a mark on life or have never been successful in love or money. I can't even afford insurance or a fancy house, not that I would want one. But, some how I just can't get past the thought of what is my purpose?

I think we all wonder that at some point in our lives. I've wondered it many times. We aren't all born to do the big things, but maybe we are born to do the small things nobody thinks about. Like smiling at someone for no reason; you never know what it might mean to someone. Helping others is certainly a purpose. I don't see life as one big party; I don't really care about building up riches or having a lot of "things." They mean nothing in the end. Sure, having things is nice, not worrying about money is nice, but there are plenty of people who have it all and blow it or are still miserable when they have it. I think you have to do things that make you feel useful. Children are certainly a good purpose; it's not easy to raise children who are good and kind sometimes. If you have done that, then that could very well have been your purpose. But who says we only have one purpose? I just try to do the best I can and help when I can. I figure if there is a purpose I'm supposed to know, I will know it when the opportunity presents itself.

Honestly I have always wondered what my purpose in life is, mainly because I never had any luck either with too much of anything, except for my baby girl. Lord knows I always wanted a baby since I knew I existed, well I didn't want one to have one until I was all grown up, and yes it did happen when I turned 27, but I never had any luck with "LOVE" or "RELATIONSHIPS" etc. I have to ask myself, will I ever find true love or am I here for some other reason, and maybe I should just give up on LOVE completely. I'm still WONDERING..Hmmm.
