A friend asked me today what my purpose in life is. At the moment I feel content without a big goal, but at other times I have had and needed a clear purpose, several even!

There are all sorts of sadnesses going on at present around me. Dealing with myself as all these big emotions swirl round me is quite enough. I water my plants and put out bird seed. I call relatives and send Facebook messages. I read blog posts and my library books.

The boys are growing up and eating their favourite foods. So I go to the supermarket and I cook what they like when they are hungry. Simple really.

I have a bit of a rant when I get cross and my housemates all listen. The cat sits on my knee and then kills our wild shrews.

I forget to look at my checklist for each day, then I remember to half way through the evening. That's ok.

  1. Hi there--
    Thanks for the link love!
    I love your insight here that sometimes our 'purpose' doesn't need to be grandly articulated-- that sometimes it's as simple as cooking a meal, doing the things that bring us joy.
