I have a purpose, You have a purpose.

Ashley from the Shine Project shared this post a few weeks ago and it has been something that has been on my mind long before she talked about it, but she has so much passion and fire when she writes...I think she ignited some in me, too!

We all have a purpose. We are all meant to do something. Being a pretty recent college graduate, I have found myself doing a job that I am so grateful for each day and so blessed to have. But, it's not near within my expensive degree that I received last year. But that's ok. What my job has taught me is that, although I may just be an assistant. I can be a darn good one. My bosses rely heavily on me to keep up with their schedules and their workloads. I am an integral part of helping them to be the best attorneys that they can be.

Wait, what? I play a part in their success? You bet I do. And that, my friends, is a gratifying thing. When I am being the best assistant I can be, I'm in turn helping my bosses be the best attorneys that they can be. We're a team and when one person is doing their best, it's likely that they are going to be helping the other to do their best as well.

So, my job may not be glamorous and it's certainly tedious at times, but I'm proud of it and I'm proud of the work that I do. Isn't that the point of life? To be proud of what you're doing, no matter what it may be? My purpose at work is to be the best that I can be. When I leave each day feeling accomplished and like I gave my best effort in the office...that carries into my home life. That joy follows me into my home every single day.

No matter where you are, or what you are doing. It has a purpose. YOU have a purpose. By being great at what you do, you're likely helping someone be great at what they do too. I kind of dig that, how about you?

You define your purpose, your passion, and your worth. No one else can or will. It's in your hand friends so make the best of it and define yourself in the best way possible. Be proud of the work you did today and are going to do tomorrow, be proud of the wife that you are or will be one day, be proud of the friend, sister, daughter, mama, co-worker, etc. that you are or will be. All of those roles hold a purpose for you.

I have a purpose and you have a purpose. Let's go make the most of it, shall we?
