Get Your Words Off Me: Excerpt 26
Looking for Love Online: Tips from Women to Men (for Women and Men)



I'm not sure what my purpose might be, but whatever it is, my thinking is that kindness and respect will help me reach it, and I do practice those.


I'm not totally convinced that I have a higher (or lower, even) purpose here, but I am convinced that I am responsible for my life, and for doing the absolute best I can.

I believe that my purpose is to find meaning for myself and to act on that understanding. I believe that we decide or intuit our purpose, and that it changes as we change and as our abilities and needs change, and that seeking to understand who we are is, perhaps, the essence of a life.

Brigit, so true: we are here to learn and to teach, a beautiful cycle of life. Unfortunately, we can't determine what other's learn from us; I hope that my daughters are getting positive lessons from me and not just "what not to do" lessons, but I guess that is good too, sort of.
