Thursday Thoughts #8: Purpose

Welcome to Thursday Thoughts from Wife of a Sailor. 
This is  my first time participating in this link-up, but I’ve been reading them since
the beginning.  They are always such great posts, and this week’s topic really grabbed me.

Today’s word is PURPOSE.  This is something that I’ve been struggling with right now.  What is my purpose outside of the home.  I know for sure that my purpose is being a mommy and wife, raise my children, support Mr. Air Force in his ridiculously demanding job and take care of our home.  There is no doubt at all that that is what I’m supposed to do.  But, being here in the DC area I’ve had so many wonderful opportunities to volunteer and experience things that I never would have even dreamed possible.  Each time  I’m still an awe.  There’s a struggle though, with what my purpose is with that.  My volunteer work hasn’t been speaking to me like it used to.  I feel stagnant like I’m not getting anywhere.  This tremendous need to accomplish something takes hold and its hard to describe really.  It’s not a desire to further myself.  In fact, if I could be anonymous and be a room somewhere would be just find with me.  I just feel like I need to be “gettin’ it done!”  There is so much to do, so many ways to help; but what is the perfect fit for me?

There is a purpose in life for everyone, that I know to be true.  Sometimes there are many purposes to one life.  Your purpose can even change and morph into something else.  Anyone else struggle with finding their purpose in some aspect of their life?

For now, I know that these little munchkins are my purpose!
