I feel most people would agree that we all need a purpose to be able every morning to get up out of bed and place our feet on the floor every day of our life.
Depression in my situation took away my purpose, I felt so empty. At one time I started planning a suicide by giving away my groceries to my best friend. I just did not have a reason to go on any longer. Once again I find myself back in treatment for my bout of depression.
I have moved past those days finding myself on the road to recovery. I have a purpose to get out of bed. That being my daughter and my grandchildren. I love hearing all about their lives and always wait for news that they are coming for a visit. The grandchildren are growing into fine young adults. I enjoy my conversations with them they keep me laughing and feeling young again.
However, I have found a new purpose to put my feet on the floor. That being writing posts for my blog. I wrote about a new perception, but this is a new energy that I am experiencing. Oh, I know that it may be that I am on a manic high, no matter what it is I love how I am feeling.
Maybe, you are one who is looking for a purpose, mine came so unexpectling all from starting to write about my struggles as a man who is bi-polar. Al I can say to encourage you is this, keep trying to move forward. You may take two steps forward, one step back but at least you are in motion.
My purpose found new excitement so yours maybe just around the next corner, the next day. Just keep moving!
