Repost: What is your purpose in life?

I remember when i was in school, one of our teachers handed us papers and asked us about our ultimate goal in life. I answered: To serve God by making a difference in the world. She told me: That’s not a real goal. You need to have a specific goal. You need to know everything […]

What is your purpose in life?

Hello reader and welcome to my blog! I wrote this post a while ago and I wanted to revisit it because I feel like lately, I haven’t been living according to my purpose. I’ve been keeping myself busy, and making lists, but otherwise, my mind is a mess (I can’t differentiate between my true self and my anxious and depressed thoughts).

I lost sight of my purpose, which is to motivate and inspire.

My friends must have felt it because they stopped reading my blogs. I felt it too because I struggled with topics to write about, not because topics wouldn’t come to mind. They would, but then the voice in my head would say “who are you to give parenting advice when you don’t know how to parent your son, or your self” and I have become a negative Nellie.

I’m not sure how to make this knot in my heart go away, or how to convince myself not to freak out and blame myself every time my husband seems unhappy. I am not responsible for anyone else’s happiness, neither is anyone responsible for mine.

My mood shifts throughout the day so many times it’s hard to keep up. I’m not sure if it’s the people in my life who trigger my negative thoughts and feelings or if I just feed on chaos.

I will try to be gentle with myself but to avoid oversharing on the internet and until I get my head on right, I won’t be posting any more blogs until February 1st, when the lockdown is lifted.

I’ll be reading blogs and thinking a lot but I won’t be using this platform as a venting machine. I have a purpose to motivate and inspire so until I feel motivated and inspired, I can’t pour from an empty cup.

Feel free to read my posts, catch up if you’re not caught up, tell me which type of posts you liked the most and which you liked the least. Let me know how you are doing in the comments. I have come to care for my fellow bloggers and readers despite not knowing them.

I will come back stronger and ready to motivate you and inspire you to be the best version of yourself.

  2. I have been in the same situation, a literal rollercoaster of mood swings and anxiety. I really love all your posts especially these were you are venting and I have someone to relate to. This is very motivating and encouraging to know I’m not alone and to hear that you’re working to do better makes me want to as well. ❤️ Which ever path you choose to take with your blog, I am here for it! ✨

    1. Thank you so much. I really needed this feedback. I was afraid people were getting sick and tired of my venting, like with all the negative things in the world, some people want positivity while others positive quotes make them feel guilty for feeling negative. As for me, I will keep writing from the heart. I’m taking this time to bond with my husband and son and work on following my own advice and reading more than writing (I am writing a bit but not posting. I will be posting 1 post tonight, however, so stay tuned because my most popular views are friday 10pm so I couldn’t miss on that opportunity because my views have decreased dramatically since I stopped posting a few days ago. I’m glad you’re enjoying my posts. Thank you for taking the time to read, like and comment
