Trying to Figure "It" Out...

Hi all!  For the past 36 days I've been reading "A Purpose Driven Life."  I've had it for years now, but just haven't been able to devote the time it deserves, or so I thought.  More likely, I lacked the discipline or just wasn't open to what I needed to learn.  I'm glad I've waited until now, because I am open to what it says and, even more importantly, have been able to share some moving passages with others who needed the encouragement.  What has been learned, you may be asking.  Simply put, it isn't all about me, my wants, my needs.  It's about what I can do for others. 

This blog was started as a way to express myself, my creativity, and will continue to be used for that, but there is so much more happening with it.  I may not be as popular as some of the other bloggers (which made me feel inferior for a while), but I am building relationships and able to help people in so many ways.  It makes me feel good to be in the background connecting people and helping them to reach their potential.  That is what it is about.  I'm not going to list my "good deeds," as they are not important.  What is important, is focusing on what can be done for others.  Does that mean I let others walk over me?  Heck, no.  I'm a strong woman.  It's just I've realized my strength comes in the form of being in the background.  The one quietly getting it done.

Just wanted to share this little piece of my heart with all of you.  Are you trying to figure "it" out?  Do you know where you are going?  What are your strengths?  TTFN!




  1. Thanks for this, I am always trying to figure it out! As far as where I am going....well I work on that everyday, I am constantly trying to reach my potential and be a better person everyday. I would say my strengths can also be my weakness, I am a really caring and thoughtful person who puts others first.Sad part is some see this as a weakness.

  2. No clue what I'm doing but loving every minute!

  3. Thank you both!

    Kay, it is true people see caring as a weakness, but it takes a very strong person to put the needs of others before their own.

  4. I just tagged you as a Versatile blogger on my page:


  5. Love The Purpose Driven Life.

    There is a cute little book called "The Purse Driven Life" by christian comedian Anita Renfroe I like too.

  6. I'm always trying to figure it out! But I suppose that's part of the fun - trying! :-) XOXO
