Find Your Purpose As Soon As You Can
I've always had something in my frontal lobe that I've designated as a "Purpose In Life", be it to start a genetic engineering pet store called "Invent-A-Pet" that would allow you to design your own pet, or to become a Nobel Prize winner (which I told my Dad I would do in my last conversation with him), or to become an artist, or to be "The Second Greatest Man Ever To Have Lived, After Jesus" (which I told to some people who hated me, just to illustrate the difference in expectations that they had in life and I had in life), or, lately, as in the last few years, to be a writer. These aren't really "Purposes" for life, they're just "Things To Do, During Life".
The Purpose is elusive. What is the purpose of my life.
It is so elusive, that many of you are probably thinking, "Oh, what an old thought, there is no purpose to life other than to live!" or, "Life is what you make of it!" or, "Life will be wasted if you spend the entire thing trying to find a purpose. There is no Maker, and if there is, He hasn't given you specifically a purpose. Purposes are a man-made invention things we give to tools--a lamp's purpose is to create light, a shovel's purpose is to move dirt--but which non-man-made objects do not have--what is the purpose of a dog? A cloud?"
To this, I say, "Bullocks! My life is man-made, made by me. So I will give it a purpose, after I stop twiddling my thumbs and find out what purpose is worthy enough to be given to it." That is what this page is about. Are ya with me? Can I get a "YO!"
