I signed up for a free six week course was described as a mind and body cohesiveness to help you find inner strength and wellness. I thought it was yoga , nope it's a lecture then you work in groups to answer the question. Each week there's a question this week  the question was , what is your purpose in life? I didn't have an answer.

 I picked my kids up from school they asked about my class. I told them the question. My 9 year old son said" That's easy your purpose is to be my Mommy , cook, clean and keep me happy"

Cute! My purpose in life is to be there for kids. Not just my kids, but all kids.

I believe my purpose is to be a positive influence in a negative world.

Awe your son is very wise. My purpose is get to my autistic son to be independent when he reaches adulthood. I have been striving for this since I found out his diagnosis. I will not rest until he is a strong independent person!

The idea is rooted in yoga. (8 limbs of yoga changed my life forever it took me on an esoteric journey inward)

Being mindfully awake consciously aware of who you are and your place in the universe.

I'm not a fan of the working in groups part. Too much chatter and too much side-tracking but the lecture sounds interesting.

Aww the wisdom of a 9 yr old! 😀

   My purpose lately is to get up go to work, come home from there get some things done and try not to lose it on anyone at either place!
