There are probably countless articles on the power of purpose, because it is a universal truth. But I think it’s worthwhile to bring it up again, especially at a time when a lot of people are stressed out, depressed, and losing hope. Maybe this reminder about why it’s important to have a purpose, and life quotes for women will help inspire you.
I believe the cause of a lot of depression is the loss of a sense
of purpose and interest in life. When you lose someone you really care about or
have any other type of major loss, it starts to make you wonder whether you
have a purpose for being here anymore.
Here are a few reasons why it’s so important to have a purpose in
life, large or small. And it doesn’t matter if the people around you or who you
know, including family and friends do not understand why you are doing what you
are doing. The point is that you have
to see the purpose in it and find some sense of joy there.

purpose. – Viktor Frankl
Gets You Up and Moving Around in the Morning
need is the plan, the road map, and the courage to press on to your
destination.” – Earl Nightingale
When you’re feeling low, hopeless, and purposeless, you might find
it difficult to drag yourself out of the bed in the morning and do anything at
all. One benefit of having a purpose is that it motivates you to wake up each
day, earlier and earlier, and get to work. You might even want to start doing
some of the things you loved to do in the past, whether it’s yoga, playing an
instrument, dancing, singing, or writing.
Can Help and Inspire Others
give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.” – Maya Angelou
“If you see
someone without a smile today, give ‘em yours.” – Dolly Parton
When others see you rebound from a difficult situation, whether it’s
the loss of a job, the ending of a marriage, grieving a loved one, or recovering
from a mental health issue, it is inspirational for them. They might be dealing
with a similar problem, quietly, and need help. When you find a purpose, even
if it’s just telling your story, or giving a testimony, it could be just the
thing that someone needs to get up and make something happen in their own
lives. There is so much power in purpose.
Can Make You Money in the Short and Long Run
usually attracted, not pursued.” – Jim Rohn
After a while, you may find that pursuing your purpose could
become a way to generate a new form of income. For example, if you find a
purpose in knitting socks or mittens, or crafting, you might start to think
about how you can sell them at flea markets or online. You might even find that
your purpose has led you to discover what you are really good at, and how you
can add special value to the world.
Keeps Your Mind Occupied
“If you hear
a voice within you say, ‘you cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that
voice will be silenced.” – Vincent Van Gogh
There are a number of passages about the uselessness of having an
idle mind and wandering aimlessly through life. When you have a sense of
purpose, you are always thinking about new things, coming up with ideas, and seeking
Helps Open You Up to the Beauty of Life
single most important ingredient in all of life for achieving happiness and
fulfillment: Purpose” – Harvey Volson
Purpose helps open you up to the beautiful things around you. The
sun shining brightly, the leaves rustling in a gentle wind, the ocean waves
coming to shore, and the kind people you encounter each day. It may be because knowing
that you have something to do, and something important to think about puts you
in a different energy field where you can once again appreciate beauty.
Think about it. What gives you and your life a sense of purpose?
When my mother, and a number of other people I cared about a lot passed, I felt
that I lost my purpose — being there for them and loving them. But with help
from my grief group, and people who still care about me, I am learning to
adjust. I feel that I may be coming back into my own sense of having a purpose
that is mostly focused on me and my own needs at the moment. It isn’t always
easy, and it takes some time, but it can happen if you stay as focused and
positive as possible.
Consider these life quotes for women and how exploring the power of purpose can be life changing for you and others around you. As desperate, lonely, and hopeless you may feel, there is always a possibility that with time you can repurpose your life and find something that interests you again.
