When I was younger, I was very judgmental and I jumped into conclusions very easily. After interacting with allot of people with different backgrounds, I think that everyone has a story! Nowadays, I’m less judgmental and I take a little bit more time before making a conclusion.
Everyone has a story to tell. Some are written in the books, some are spoken and some are confined into the hearts. It’s up to us to choose what to do with our stories. An author of a book determines the writing formats, genres, language etc. These works may vary in tone, genre and type, but as pieces of writing, they should have one thing in common; a purpose!
Personally, I think that should be the same in our own real lives. Everyone has a purpose in life and I think it’s a very personal issue. I believe that it’s important to know one’s purpose in life. Once you have it, keep it in mind that your life is a trajectory. Every choice you make alters that trajectory, in a positive or negative way.
Again when I turned 30, 😉 (Hopefully, you have read my blog on My Turning Point 🙂 ) I came up with this kinda ” Life board” after reading a book about purpose in life. It has been useful to me in my journey but I’m still work in progress.
The life journey = The purpose in life + Goals & objectives + Choices & principles
Life has a tendency of providing to each person with what they need in order to grow. Our beliefs, what we value in life, provide the road map for the type of life that we experience. Life is a journey and only you hold the map. Most of all, enjoy every moment of the journey, and appreciate where you are at this moment instead of always focusing on how far you have to go. Remember that you owe nobody an explanation. It’s your story! Again, run your own race!
