Happy Thursday y’all! I hope your guys’ week has been productive so far! Here’s a little mid-week pick-me-up.
I’m pretty sure we’re all familiar with Khalid’s song Young, Dumb, and Broke. Its catchy, easy to listen to, and it only infiltrated just about every radio station when it came out. It’s preface is mainly about a relationship, but I really enjoy the other topics it talks about.
One of the lyrics says: Yeah, we’re just young, dumb, and broke, but we’ve still got love to give.”
As teenagers or young adults, we’re still trying to find our purpose in life. It can be pretty scary to travel this foreign ground that we call adolescence. We feel like we’re walking through mud to get to the next step in our lives.
The truth of the matter is that we all have purpose… even as young people. We don’t have to do something world-changing to be successful or hold value. Each and every one of us can serve our purpose by simply being the best version of ourselves. I hold the Christian faith, so I’m called to love people and show them God through the way I live my life. That is my main purpose. But maybe you aren’t a Christian. That doesn’t mean you don’t have purpose. Christians and non-Christians can share the common value of living life well and living for something bigger than ourselves.
So take some time today to make someone else’s day better: give them an encouraging word, give them a hug, pay for the person behind you in the coffee line, or simply say “I appreciate you.” Sometimes, living our purpose is not as difficult as we think.
