What Were You Born To Do?



­čśë As I’ve mentioned before, I was born to avoid being eaten by a crocodile.

What were you born to do? Is your life purpose as strange as mine?

Thanks to Evan, Grannymar, Looney, Rummuser, suzen, and Noan for commenting on last week’s post.

    I was born to have a husband & kids, take care of them & keep them happy. I could have done a better job, but they all still love me.

    We don’t have to be perfect to be lovable. And you are beloved. ­čÖé

    I was born to shed light, I guess this is pretty strange.

      One size doesn’t fit all. That wouldn’t have worked for me, but If I’ve understood correctly it worked well for Rummuser too.

    I agree with Grannymar. Everything just happened after I was born.

      I don’t believe that. It seems to me you did a lot to create a better life for yourself and your family. Yes, you didn’t have complete control but you worked hard and took advantage of the opportunities that presented themselves. Don’t you agree?

  6. Looney says:

    I don’t actually remember being born, nor what my first words were. Perhaps the first words were The North Face slogan: “Never stop exploring”.

    I guess what I intended to say was that I was not born to do anything particular. Yes, I did take advantage of opportunities and made some good choices. I guess what I’m saying is that I believe that we are the ones that, through our aspirations, work, choices and attitudes, determine what it is that we are to do with our lives.

    That’s a good one. My own motto is, “Keep curious and open to life. No matter what happens keep learning and growing. Find what you love to do and find a way to share it with others.”

    “Born to do” is just a metaphor for our values, what our lives are about. That’s going to be influenced by our personalities and life experiences. I used the term because the cartoon tickles me.

    Evan, Please do not take offense. I shall paraphrase you and say, “I was born to shed weight.” No matter what I do, I do not seem to be able to achieve that one goal.

    Jean, for the past ten years, it appears that I have been sent here for the sole purpose of being able to serve others. Some times, it is overwhelming but at most other times, very satisfying.

      I have the impression your caregiving for your wife was more rewarding than taking care of your father. Is that true? I hope you’re taking some steps to restore some balance in your life. You have some loyal supporters.

    Jean, thanks for your concern. Things are working out alright. I think that it is time for another blog post on yours truly!
