A few months ago I was struggling with finding my purpose in life.
I stood in faith. I continued on with my journey in life.
I dreamed the dream of my retirement years.
During that time, I read many inspiring stories, looking for my own meaning.
I wanted to find a way to help others.
I said that if I could help one person smile, laugh, or feel empowered, then my day was a success.
I’ve found a passion for writing. Boomer Blogging, if you will.
I am a Boomer with a purpose. I know in my heart that each one of you has a purpose too. Each one of you has a gift. It’s just all about finding it and putting it into action.
So I leave you with this writing today with a few points to ponder as you seek your purpose in life.
Here’s to living, laughing, loving, and learning through retirement.
Live your days.
Don’t waste a moment of life. It is too short. It’s too precious.
It is an adventure. A gift.
It is a time to help others.
Time to take action.
It is a time to be enjoyed. It’s a time to create. To inspire.
It is a time to accomplish. Meet challenges.
It is a time to shift.
It’s never too late to spread your wings and fly.
It is a time to seek your purpose.
