“Do you think that God would say, “You have made the world much better.” – 12 Step Prayer Book
I spent the majority of my life not knowing what my purpose was. Initially I thought it was to graduate college, make money, have a nice home, nice car, nice things, get married, and have some kids. Don’t get me wrong, these things are nice, but none of them gave me a feeling that I’ve found my true purpose. Even getting sober and helping others in AA and AlAnon didn’t do it. It wasn’t until I started diligently working an intensive program of recovery and began really loving myself that I began to understand the true nature of my purpose. By taking consistent action to love myself, others and the world around me, and encouraging others to experience it for themselves, I finally found my purpose. I believe that the action of both working and sharing a program of action to love life, makes the world a little better, one person at a time. The older I get, the more I know that my purpose is to continue spreading the life loving message as much as possible. And a wonderful byproduct of all this worthwhile effort is that ILML!
