Is Purpose a Feeling?

Ruby Girls, how are you doing? It is so good to drop a line to let you know what has been on my mind. Did I just rhyme? I think I just discovered another skill. What I want to share with you today is something that I have been seeking God about. Just when I think I got it, I feel like I don't. If you personally know me, then you know I am a serial entrepreneur. Here is the list: I sell T-shirts, clothes, and craft. I am a talk show host and a motivational speaker. Oh, I am also an inactive coach. (Big sad face) That's a diversity of roles that I play. Now this is going to surprise you, I am still seeking to "feel" that I am walking in my life purpose. Isn't that just crazy?

I hear people say all the time, chase only one rabbit. I promise you I try to chase one rabbit, but you know rabbits can multiply really quickly and make you forget which one you were originally chasing. I find myself working in one of my roles but feeling like I am not as effective in that role as I should be. Then I decide to switch roles and after a while, I go to another role. I stay in a cycle of doing a little of this and a little of that. This year I decided to slow down because for the last two years, I have spent too much money on some of my rabbits!

There are times when you have to literally stop what you are doing to find out what your sole purpose is. I admire people who have made one thing their sole purpose. You know those type of people, like Serena Williams, she is a master at tennis because that is what she focuses on. Serena has not tried to master her talentS but she worked on mastering her talent of playing tennis. She knows what her single purpose is, and she does not deviate from it.
