Purpose 

There are a lot of people telling us 

what to be, 

who to be, 

what to do, 

who to love, 

how to work, 

how to vote, 

what to think, 

what to believe, 

what to revere, 

what to revile, 

what to fear, 

what to exhalt, 

what to say, 

what not to say, 

what to raise up,

 what to despise, 

what to eject, 

what to retain,

what to wall off,

and what to seal in.

So.

Why are YOU here?

What is your daily purpose?

What are your goals?

What do you hope to accomplish tomorrow?

Next week?

Next month?

Next year?

Before you die?

Do you have a manifesto?

Do you really believe in anything, really, or do you love being spoonfed?

Are you a maintainer?

An innovator?

An influencer?

A game changer?

A world beater?

Is your life stagnant, or fluid, or changeable?

Have you already built your own wall?

Who paid for it?

Who are you keeping out, and…

what are you deparately trying to keep in?

That Guy (or Gal)

Who do you want to be, really? 

Do you want to be the person known for his work ethic, his energy, his stamina, his grace under pressure? 

Do you want to be the lady who makes the awesome cakes?

Do you want to be the only person in your circle who can ride a unicycle?

Do you want to be the person that others go to when they have a gut-busting secret that they just have to share with someone else?

Do you want to be the one with the fantastic sense of style?

Do you want to be the leader, the one everyone else follows?

Do you want to be the mover and shaker?

Do you want to be the innovator?

Do you want to be the destroyer?

Do you want to be the healer?

Do you want to be a friend?

Do you want to be a lover?

Do you want to be the one who’s always traveling?

Do you want to be the one who throws the most awesome parties?

Do you want to be the one they call Mom?

Do you want to be the one they call first?

Do you want to be the first to arrive and the last to leave?

Do you want to be the one who comforts others?

Do you want to be the one who always knows?

Do you want to be passionate?

Do you want to be strong?

Do you want to be tender?

Get out there.

Be that guy.

Be that gal.
