Last July when I was having a time of questioning why I was doing this writing stuff, a book arrived from the library—The Four Desires by Rod Stryker. It is about finding your life’s purpose. I wasn’t aware I needed to find my purpose. I was very happy with my life, despite wondering about “this writing stuff”. But in doing the exercises faithfully I realized one important way of being the person I truly want to be is through my writing. I never will be a politician or a grand speaker, but perhaps through my books for young people I can plant seeds of positive change. That is my hope.
Maybe that’s what we all want.
