All too often, you have this wonderful idea that will change the world. You’d most likely find yourself daydreaming of being the modern day “superhero”, to which you ask yourself countless of times the question, “How to start?”
Finding your purpose in life would probably be the most time consuming discovery of all time. Well, at least for some. Others, it’s something that magically occurs. It’s like reality slapping you in the face kind-of-stuff.
When I left the hospital for another “job”, I wasn’t expecting anything other than having something to be busy about. At the same time, earning a living to feed myself and pay the bills. Practical. Sounds nice, eh?
But you see, it’s when you don’t expect to find anything at all will you be given the opportunity to discover what you’re consciously or subconsciously looking for in your life. As for me, I found my life’s purpose while extending my skills and knowledge as a behavioral therapist, hoping I made the world a better place for families with special needs sons and daughters for a day together with my Case Managers from TeamWorks ABA, Inc. and teachers from Apple Tree Integrated School spearheaded by Dr. Bisnar on November 28, 2015.
I volunteered to be a part of the outreach mission in San Narciso, Zambales to break my routine and find a deeper connection to the new found love that I have for my work. God has abundantly blessed me with His favor this year. He’s shown me another side of life in the eyes of special angels. He’s given me permission to grow wings for mortal angels until such time they acquire their own. And most importantly, He made me and all the volunteers instruments of His undying love.
I looked too far before only to figure out that my purpose was right under my nose. So, before you look into the horizon, scan what you have near. Maybe, just maybe, your life purpose is waving on the other side of the road saying, “Hi! It’s me.”
