The lion’s purpose for running is to feed itself, while the deer’s purpose for running is to stay alive. If the lion was running away from the deer it would be living against its purpose. And the deer would not be alive long if it ran towards the lion. Each one of us have a purpose, and once we identify it life becomes less stressful. Life seems to be worth living when we go through life trying to live another person’s purpose. Or we attempt to fit the mold others want to put us in, the way they think we should live. Different purposes for different people. Learn your purpose and live it to the fullest. Ignore all the negative outside influences and use your purpose to positively influence those around you. Be your purpose, start now.
