Why Am I Here?

Several years ago I listened to a speaker talk about purpose. Everything has a purpose-a reason for existing. 

A knife cuts. A car transports.  A microphone amplifies sound.

What is my purpose? And why I am here? 

I think about my life’s purpose often. I want to do something significant with my time here.

For most of my adult life, my career involved working with young people. I tried to make a difference through teaching.  I encouraged young minds to be excited about science by providing engaging learning experiences for my students. At times, I felt unappreciated and underpaid.

Now, that part of my life is over. It is time for me to make a difference in other ways. I have the awesome privilege of helping to parent my grandson and of taking care of my great niece. Plus, I have an opportunity to encourage others through my blog. 

I enjoy making others laugh too. When I shop, I try to say something encouraging or comical to people. 

Laughter is medicine for the soul. I am so thankful for the gift of laughter. It has helped me through some difficult times…divorce, financial problems, and health issues.
