The acceptance of one’s physical, mental and genetic attributes in conjunction with experiences and environmental influences over time is all that encompasses who we are…. WHO YOU ARE… the moment you see those attributes, features and characters as your enabler, tools to realize and achieve your potentials on this earth then you’re just about one step and a half into discovering your purpose in this life…the next question would be what defines you.
WHAT DEFINES YOU?
Like that popular quote which says …“what we do does not define who we are, what defines us is how well we rise after falling”, I actually agree with the quote but not totally.. Life is not just about rising and falling, there’s so much into the challenges, situations that life brings. We rise, we fall…we stay contented, we are hungry, we are filled, we INTERACT, we CREATE…we INNOVATE…we INVOLVE…we EVOLVE every day, there is a force behind all this action…that force is “what you do” in every circumstance, condition you find yourself…it’s simply what defines you.
What defines you is the INSPIRATION, motivation, PRINCIPLES, energy, spirit and SOUL we put behind everything we do in any situation we find ourselves at any point in time. It’s what people see when they look at you, it’s what you’re known for whether positive or negative, good or bad. It’s usually DEPENDABLE; it’s what makes you that person you are.
It’s a state in the human phase that’s built over time. It’s the GRAND PRE-REQUISITE for ones purpose in life. It gives you an utmost INTRINSIC responsibility for something, almost like a calling in life, a sense of resolve…the road to FULFILLMENT
Every time you define and redefine yourself it’s channeled towards something…you see it…your mind tells you this is it…you feel the need to embrace it…it’s your purpose in life. Its right in front you…take it… it’s yours…or is it?
PURPOSE IN LIFE
I often wondered of all natures features (the mountains, the air, the sea, plants, animals…etc. ), the only one that’s ever INCONSISTENT in fulfilling its purpose in the BIOSPHERE …and that’s the supposed …head, the shepherd…the one the creator has given the responsibility of taking proper care of what’s created and also use it for his needs is ….THE HUMAN. Unlike every other natural thing or being existing, only the human has the capability to waver enormously…imagine the elephant getting bored of feeding on grasses or shrubs and opting for flesh or the GIANT REDWOOD OF CALIFORNIA requiring several gushes of wind to open up its cones instead of the usual FOREST FIRE…that certainly won’t happen…unless of course for human intervention or extreme technological try outs, probably in some cases as regards natural environment distortion and unnecessary terraforming , you only need to know the effects of human activities as regards climate change for instance to know what am talking about( that’s a story for another day, you should check my next piece; THE IMBALANCE IN NATURE IS WHATS MAKES NATURE BALANCE…coming soon).
*Reality check; it doesn’t get all rosy at the end, not everyone would be ‘fulfilled’ at the end…you ask why? I tell you it’s the gift and the curse called CHOICE. We (humans) are the only natural being that’s capable of making choices at the long haul, short haul, instantaneously…in fact we live our life everyday by the choices we make…I see what you’re thinking though, what if we go about our lives in a sort of status quo kind of living, We do the same thing over and over again everything is perfect…we contribute our own quota on this earth…everything is just fine (you mean boring right?).. I hear you.
The choices we make are everything…while it makes us flexible and drives in us a sense of curiosity, it also gives us the power to innovate and help develop ourselves and everything around us suitably. it’s obvious the human race haven’t been using it well enough, positively. But that’s another mysterious attribute of the human world, choice…some like to substitute it for DESTINY.. I like to stick with choice…I don’t think any one of us knows what we are destined for or to be…but we can sure, somewhat determine it by making choices, for the sake of positivity and moral dignity…making the right choices. We might not be unfailing at all times, but they is nothing wrong in trying to be a better version of ourselves, believing in who you are, what you’re capable of, defining and redefining yourself every day and fulfilling your PURPOSE in life.one thing is for sure, you will definitely find fulfillment, when you make the right choices.
