As humans, we often spend many hours, days, months or even years pondering “our purpose”. Although we are unsure of our purpose at first, we eventually find we may have many purposes, whether that be to be a parent, spouse, healer, lover or anything else. It is easy to misalign your purpose with your reason. The definition of the word purpose, by Webster, is: the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists. The definition of the word reason, by Webster, is: the power of the mind to think, understand, and form judgments by a process of logic.
In layman’s terms, our purpose does not always align with our reason, yet our reason can impact our purpose. Your purpose is solely created for why you exist on this earth, your reason is capacity of your mind that allows you to find and live your purpose. So of course, without purpose we would not have reason and without reason we may not have purpose. The two go hand in hand, but allowing yourself to find reason in your purpose and purpose in your reason will truly allow you to reach your full potential.
