Finding Our Purpose 


Someone asked me last night; “How will I know I’ve found my purpose?” I told them; “When what you think, what you say, what you do, who you are, is aligned.”

“How will I know this?” was the next question. “When you stop searching and start serving.” I replied. “Our purpose is never found in pursuit of self but in helping others find their way.”

Today I spotted two turtles, within two miles and two minutes of each other on a busy highway. I have a soft spot for these reptiles because I long to go slower in an all too hectic, fast paced world. I pulled the truck over, flipped on the hazards, picked them up and put them both in a much safer place.

After my reptile rescue I then went to a recovery facility and spoke to a group of about sixty men. I was honest, blunt and supportive. I explained to them that their addiction was a certain road to death for them and heartache for everyone who loved and cared them. I told them their was hope, a better safer way but they had to choose to travel it.

“Our purpose is never found in pursuit of self but in helping others (even turtles?) find their way.”
