What are you living for?

What are you living for? This thought has been swirling around in my mind of late, wondering what exactly are we living for?

And I don’t mean “what is your passion or purpose”. Those are completely overused and overrated, even if I do believe we should know our purpose and our passion.

It isn’t the be-all, end-all.

It is just a component of what we are living for.

My question is what are we living for to help this world become an even more bright and brilliant place. Perhaps I’m asking this question more of myself, but I encourage you to dig deep and ask yourself the same question. “What am I living for?”

And I mean, how are we helping the communities around us gain notice and assistance? The news has been full of absolutely heart-wrenching stories of needless bombings, killings, and attacks. I can’t go a day without wanting to fold up with sorrow at what the world is faced with.

How do we help those across the world dealing with civil war, poverty, or getting a proper education or nutrition?

How do we help families rebuild their lives after fleeing their country looking for better opportunities? Or helping the endless women, men, and children who are brought in to sex slavery every single day?

We weep with those who are weeping. We grieve with those who are grieving. But are we doing anything about it?

I’ll be honest, I’ve never seen myself as an advocate. I’ve been guilty of seeing the horror on the news then turning around washing the dishes in my sink, thinking of those who are in need, but then eventually moving on.

I feel like there is a shift happening inside of me. I challenge you to join me, to lift our heads from under our soft blankets and give the world what it needs. Our strengths to bring change to this world.

If you’re already an advocate for something that is dear to your heart, please share who or what you advocate for and how other’s can come along side you in support.
