As I sat back one day recalling different moments from my past, I began to realize that life is nothing more than a bunch of puzzle pieces slowly being put together by every event we experience, ultimately creating the big picture which is our life’s purpose. This is how I envision my life. Every moment, another puzzle piece being snapped in place where it belongs. At times, we put down the wrong piece in the wrong place, some of us fix it quickly, some take their time and others just give up. But some ultimately complete their puzzle. Getting to see their purpose completely unfold in front of them.
Life is all about where we put the pieces, we can choose to put the pieces in the wrong places and live with them there uncomfortably, or we can choose to put the proper pieces in the right places and get to ultimately see the bigger picture. Your purpose! We all have one. If you are living and breathing than you have purpose. The hard part is finding it. Once you find it, then it’s up to you what you are going to do with it.
There has to come a point in your life where you decide that enough is enough, that something has to give. That something is YOU. You are the beginning of change. You have to be willing to give what it takes to make sure your puzzle is put together firmly and correctly. You are the master of your own puzzle. Only you know where each piece fits correctly. Take the time to get to know each piece, to see the edges and curves, so you know where the next piece goes. There is no better feeling of accomplishment when you see you have completed your puzzle. When you can fully see the picture for what it truly is.
Honestly, the hardest part is not starting something but continuing it and maintaining it. Everyone can have an epiphany and decide they need to do something to make a change. Sticking to it and continuing it is where it gets difficult. You have to really want whatever your passion is and do everything you can to attain it. Sacrifice, patience, hard work, blood, sweat and tears. Whatever it takes to be a better you. In the end, we are all part of a much bigger puzzle that is being put together by every person, everyday, putting piece by piece to create a better, bigger world for all of us.
