One fateful night, I laid down to sleep after I felt that I had achieved that day. This question popped into my mind and after pondering over it, I asked myself what I really take life as. You know, life is not all about waking up at the sound of your alarm and going about your daily duties. Life is not just living in a big house with servants around neither is it about just struggling to fend for yourself. Life is not about going to school and having a degree to give you a good job. Life is not about getting married,having a good husband and wonderful kids. Life is not about sitting in a cozy chair in your multimillionaire office. Life is not about sending off your child to school to study and make you proud. Life is not about money. Life is not about fun. Life is not about partying. Life is not about music. Life is not about education. Life is not about work. Life is not about death. Life is not about power.
Life is deeper than we see it. Life is a deliberate choice. Life has its ups and downs but really, life is about now. Life is not dependent on past failures. Life is you dreaming something and going for it. Life is flexible. Life is purpose. Life depends on how you view it. A life of purpose is a meaningful life. If a man acquires wealth and has a beautiful family and still doesn’t fulfil purpose, well, we can still classify that life as meaningless. What am trying to say is that, if your purpose is not to feed the orphans but to provide employment for the youth and you were busy feeding the orphans then you didn’t fulfil purpose. Let me break it down, the set of youths you are meant to help will end up wallowing in their failures when you, their Messiah did not show up and whereas those children you ought not to help will have more than enough help for their entire life. Do you get me? A meaningful life is a life of purpose. It is a life that is fulfilled. There is this peace that comes with fulfilling purpose. I don’t know who is reading this but I believe you are getting something about life. Life is interwoven with purpose and purpose is interwoven with prayer. Yes, you have to pray to know your purpose. Am not preaching neither am I telling you fables, all what am saying is real and true. You can fulfil purpose and have a meaningful life. It is a choice.
