Having A Purpose versus other purposes
And yet, 'having a purpose' is very specific. Wanting to participate in the Olympics...and win a Gold is specific…like wanting to play for the NBA...and winning a championship, or wanting to run a marathon... and breaking the tape. Wanting to get married... and raising a family is specific too. Or, as in my case, wanting to write ONE book I truly love... and seeing that book (so-to-speak) walking on the moon is specific as well.
It’s not to say that graduating, or finding a job, or paying bills or even making money, and lots of it, is a benign or unimportant purpose. What I’m talking about is starting at zero and making a dream commensurate to building ‘you name the highest tower’ with your bare hands (no tools) come true.
Honestly, sometimes I think the reason writing that ONE book is so far out range for me, is because I don't want to wake up from the dream. I want to always have a purpose.
At any rate, I just finished reading 'Uphill' by Jemele Hill. (My thoughts here).
