Everyone has one, right?
This year on The Vibe, we’ve been discussing purpose, and if you’re on the right path to following yours or not.
If you don’t know your purpose, that’s okay too.
What you should know is that everyday you wake up, God is giving you another opportunity to find and fulfill YOUR purpose.
What I’ve realized is that distractions on top of distractions GET IN THE WAY.
SETTLING IS A DISTRACTION!!
Are you settling? Coasting? Stuck in a day-to-day, week-to-week, month-to-month, or even YEAR-TO-YEAR routine?
Well, ARE YOU?
Let’s talk about goals, real quick.
By next year I want …
By 2020 I want …
In the next 5-10 years, I WANT …
I think OUR purpose has a lot to do with how we can live an abundant life and accomplish those goals that we have for ourselves.
So, back to distractions.
What are some distractions for YOU that are in the way of YOU and YOUR PURPOSE!?
Again, SETTLING IS A DISTRACTION.
Distractions can also include, time, money, a job you hate, maybe you feel you’re not educated enough, social media, laziness, procrastination, lack of support, and oh, my favorite, FEAR.
Since the day you were born YOU WERE EQUIPPED WITH EVERYTHING NEEDED TO FULFILL YOUR PURPOSE.
Now may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with every good thing to do His will. And may He accomplish in us what is pleasing in His sight through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen. Hebrews 13:20-21
YOU HAVE EVERYTHING YOU NEED.
EVERY. SINGLE. THING.
So, why are you worried about lack of education? Why are you worried about lack of funds, WHY ARE YOU WORRIED, PERIOD?

According to purposefairy.com, here are some ways you can awaken you Soul and start living in alignment with your life purpose. I won’t list them all, but check out their site to read the full article.
1. Ask for guidance
God is waiting for you to ASK.
Ask for clarity and guidance.
ASK for what you WANT
2. Let go of fixed plans and concepts
I think we should all know by now that OUR plan isn’t necessarily GOD’S plan.
God has the quickest, most efficient route for OUR PURPOSE
All God is asking of you is to trust. TRUST. THAT’S IT.
3. Prepare to be uncomfortable
THIS IS A BIG ONE.
A lot of times, that FEAR distraction that we have is because we’re scared of being UNCOMFORTABLE. We’re scared of putting a down payment on our purpose.
Even though God has already assured us that as long as we step out on faith, everything will be okay.
So, yes you’ll be uncomfortable, and THAT IS OKAY.
“Go through the experience of discomfort, so that you ultimately go through the experience of expansion.” – Brittany Josephina
4. Be open to all opportunities
Well, you can’t get to your purpose if you aren’t willing to EXPAND.
If you aren’t comfortable at your job, but you’re SCARED to leave because you’re scared to be UNCOMFORTABLE… there is no room to let new opportunities in, right?
SO LET THAT HURT GO.
5. MAINTAIN AN ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE.
Oh, friends, stay thankful.
Stay obsessively GRATEFUL for this moment.
It’s so easy to be distracted, I know.
HOWEVER, PLEASE DON’T STAY DISTRACTED.
SO – Get re-aligned.
Go BE great.
Today, and always.
To you and your purpose! <3
