MAY I ALWAYS LIVE LIFE ON PURPOSE!
Today is MAY 1st!! As I lay in bed last night not being able to fall asleep I started to think about the next month of our lives. The idea of a month of “MAY I’s” popped into mind. Over the next 31 days I have decided to make declarations that I believe will encourage me and I hope others as well. In some ways they may also be prayers. For today, I declare my desire to always live life on purpose!
Do you? Do you live with full intentions or just let life happen to you? I know I’ve done both. Or rather I DO both! And in some areas I definitely live more on purpose than in other areas. For instance parenting. Am I perfect? Absolutely not, but I have made it a priority to read, ask questions, and take classes. I ask other parents whom I trust and respect what they would do in different situations. I read through different books that I think could help me on this parenting journey. I don’t have this whole parenting thing down, but I refuse to just let life happen when it comes to my kids. Same with my marriage. I love my husband too much to just expect things to always go well with little to no effort on my part. I did that for years and the results were detrimental. I have to be a good wife…..ON PURPOSE. In other areas of my life I’m not so purpose driven. And in those areas, I struggle. It’s hard work. I have to put time and energy towards the things I do on purpose. I don’t think that it’s about being perfect at something I think it’s about being purposeful. So as I take inventory of my life, I see areas that are lacking in purposeful living. May I do something about that……MAY I LIVE LIFE ON PURPOSE!
How about you? Do you live life on purpose? When you don’t, what are the results? When you do, what are the results?
