This famous quote, “The purpose of life is a life with purpose” resonates with me. I often stop and think about my purpose in life. I am a mother, daughter, sister, aunt, friend, wife, caretaker, and a social worker. As I reflect on my purpose, I have come to learn that I enjoy helping others. Working for MSAA offers me the opportunity to help the MS community. I hope to provide a safe place for many to call in for help and to find support. I feel a great sense of pride knowing I can help and navigate others through uncharted waters in a time of need.
So, my question to you is: What is your purpose? Is it maybe being a friend, maybe being a spouse, or maybe simply it is doing things that bring you happiness? Sometimes finding the answer is easy, and sometimes it takes time to see where we are appreciated most. If you are struggling to answer this question, do not be afraid to turn to others for guidance and friendly suggestions. Those around you often see the gifts that you exhibit to them that you may not recognize in yourself. This could help you to understand what your purpose is and how to make the best of it.
