What is my purpose?

What is My Purpose?

Over the past 18 – 24 months, there have been several questions asked almost routinely  . . .


  • Can you hear me now or am I still on mute?
  • Do you have toilet tissue in stock?
  • What is Zoom?
  • What is my Purpose?


Purpose –

the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists


What is My Purpose?  This seems like a pretty straightforward question for some . . . first responders, healthcare providers, military, clergy and perhaps other careers.  Others of us may not have a primary purpose that is quite as easily identified.


After giving it a lot of thought I realized I was trying to equate a purpose to a goal or a specific achievement.  I then witnessed my family and friends serving purposes perhaps without even knowing it.


Providing a listening ear or shoulder to lean on for a struggling friend or family member.


Helping an elderly family member with her medicine or simply listening as they go down memory lane, once again.


Holding the hand of a loved one to give support.


Helping a child with their homework or laughing at their joke that doesn’t make sense, but your laughter (your purpose) gives them joy!


Paying for the dinner of a family you don’t even know and will never see again.


Giving up your seat on the bus for a pregnant mom.


Providing a loving and safe home for a rescued or adopted pet (if you know me, you know I would include that purpose!).


In my mind, I feel like we are all more aligned with our purpose(s) than we might realize. When we act out of love and compassion a purpose is achieved. In my heart, I believe there is a purpose we can all easily reach . . . be kind to one another . . . as simple as sharing a smile or a hello with a stranger!

I can't say enough good things about my experience. During my cancer diagnosis, the last thing you want to worry about... is how your Insurance Company is going to actually work for you. I of course, had many questions, which were always answered in "full detail". Amy Towe, our Insurance representative could not have been more helpful. She would check on things for me and always got me an answer promptly. Amy was always available when ever I had a question. She defiantly made the entire process easier. I truly can say enough about her. Her caring was so appreciated throughout my entire journey.Angela Adamsread more
