I like weird things. I like the abstract. I like painting even if I suck. I like crafting even if I’m no good. Here’s a little piece of advice.
Do what makes your soul happy.
Unless of course its vulgar, or awful or sinful. Seriously though, if you like painting on people’s backs why should you not do it? If you love to dance, dance your heart out. If you want to move to Nashville, do it. If not, don’t. If you change your mind, don’t be afraid to change your plans. Change your major. Move. Go. Do. Make. Create. Sing. Dance. Paint. Climb. Whatever !
Why are we so afraid?
Why are we so focused on making a living? Bringing in dat money. We need purpose. You know who gives us purpose? God. You know who has the answers when we don’t ? God. Was Moses an accountant? Did Joseph stress about his grades? YET THEY HAD PURPOSE.
I have always found purpose in my voice. That’s what I was sure I was meant to do. What if I never get on the radio? What if I never get a record deal or sell 1,000 records? What if?
Will I still be happy? Will I have purpose.
Our purpose is not our income.
Our purpose is to love, and we all have been blessed with different abilities to show it in various ways. So next time you feel like a failure, the next time you feel the need to buy a bigger house, a newer car, etc….the next time you want to eat at a 5 star restaurant but you work at McDonalds and can’t afford it… Go buy some 97 cent paint and lose yourself some how. Learn what makes you truly happy,and give God the time to reveal to you your purpose.
