Thought of the Day: Purpose

Purpose Buechner quote

When we think of purpose, we think of the profound, perhaps the divine, but ultimately the powerful. We think that purpose means setting high expectations of ourselves and of the future. But purpose does not only entail mass movements to change the world and certainly is not bestowed only on particular people.

We all hold a key to a piece of the world. And with that, we all have a purpose. We can claim it and we can change our minds. We can find purpose in small actions and in greater plans. It doesn’t matter what our purpose is or where, how and why we came to it. It doesn’t matter what scale we conceive it to have or what means we have at our disposal. All that matters is we act on it. Because we all have a gift that we can share with the world. Even if we don’t realise it yet.
