All I am looking for in life is a purpose. I want to matter.
I know that I matter to my baby girl. I know that I am her entire world. I know, and I'm glad.
I know that I matter to my husband, and that he'd be completely lost without me, thankyouverymuch.
I know that I have some loving, darling friends and family to whom I matter very much.
But what I mean to say is this.
What I want more than anything is to be someone or to create something that really matters, to the world. Something that changes everything and everyone I touch for the better.
I believe in the power of love, in the power of beauty, in the power of kindness. I believe that when we do the ordinary things in extraordinary ways they can change the world. I believe that the personal is political, that the little things aren't little.
So, you see, what I'm striving for isn't a lot. Except for the fact that it's everything.
What I want, more than anything, is to do something that truly matters. It doesn't need to change the world - at least not more than anything else does - but it needs to change something, to change someone.
If I can do that? I will be a success.
The topic for this week's Be Enough Me was, "What are you striving for?"
