I know throughout my life I have searched through prayer, through activities, through successes, through failures for my purpose in life. I have found purpose as a wife, friend and mother. I continue to be a wife. I continue to nurture friendships. But now that the kids have grown and are sort of on their own, I reflect and try to recalculate where I am going, how I contribute to those around me.
So what exactly does purpose mean--Webster defines it as:
- the reason for which something exists or is done, made, used, etc.
- an intended or desired result; end; aim; goal.
- determination; resoluteness.
