Live with Purpose

Ms Purposeso Cares- Live with Purpose

There's a reason why the first thing we often ask someone when we meet them, right after we learn their name, is "where's home for you?" Being as old as I am (not giving away my age- LOL), I’m unable to fully answer this question does not make me uncertain of whom I am, but it is a feeling that I do not have the words to describe… I guess the only way to somewhat describe this feeling I have can be described by T.S. Eliot’ second poem of the Four Quartets. Eliot writes that “Home is where one starts from.”

Around June of 2013, I had this burning desire to live an extraordinary life as opposed to a mundane routine life. As grateful as I am for all that I had, a great job, good food to eat and simple luxuries most thrive to achieve, I had grown exhausted from that routine life. I was working away so hard to achieve something, that not even I had known what it was… It is at that moment I had decided to take a stand and do things differently. I wanted to make a small difference in my world, with little actions. I wanted to do something meaningful with my life.

As outlandish as this may sound, I had begun to have thoughts of teaching abroad. A yearning to leave behind everything and relocate to another country. Being the forward thinker I am I had known this was foolish to just leave without a thought of how I would get by. I had begun to become more involved in charitable and spiritual fetes, which temporarily satisfied my desire to do great things.

So, if someone were now to ask me where is home for you…its quite simple actually. Home is where your heart, soul and mind feel one and where you recognize your purpose.

At present, I am working towards my dream- I have taken the plunge- left my senior team lead role at a global MNC in 2016; moved to Asia as a Foreign Language Educator . I have no regrets leaving my home, as home truly is where you find your purpose. I do not wish to sound like some patriot or a martyr. I am just an ordinary person wanting to live a life doing extraordinary things. I do not come from a wealthy family, or have had a cushy upbringing, in fact where I am today and who I am comes from a great deal of struggles, hard work and determination to succeed at fulfilling a greater purpose.

I have started my own blog---> mspurposeso.wordpress.com  Straight to it- what are Ms Purposeso’s intentions…? Our community, our people, our world faces various social issues, which significantly contribute to people either resorting to self-abomination or destruction to the society as a whole. It is idealisms set by society that annihilates ones self-morale and self worth, and lead us to believe that we are not self-worthy. I have spent a vast amount of time focusing on issues around the effects of social norms in society.

Fellow followers, I want to emphasize that all content published on Ms Purposeso is as per my opinion and my point of view. I am using the power of social media to create awareness on issues that I believe lead to social degradation. If you oppose any of my views or have your views to share, kindly address these in an appropriate manner via the proper channels. This Page also gives you an opportunity to voice your purpose and beliefs. I have decided to share my deepest emotion and purpose here, instead of the orthodox approach of writing about myself or taking something off the internet.

I truly believe that there are still masses of noble people out there who also share the same vision and idealisms that I do. I do not expect anything to happen overnight , which has taken me a long time to understand, as my personality is such that I am extremely action-oriented, but now with time, all dreams and hopes do get realized. Small actions can help make a difference. Let’s try to rid our society of norms that destroys people’s core and strip us of living a purposeful life. Thank you for taking the time to read my post. I would be most grateful for you to share Ms Pureposeso’s Page, and spread the word.

Tilisha, welcome and thank you for taking action, speaking from your heart and boldly creating continuous dialog for positive change. Encouraging others to rise above the society behaviors that erode self confidence, self love and acceptance is deeply inspiring. Choosing to live a purpose filled life is both mindful and wholehearted ...with every post your voice gets louder and reaches further distances. Keep speaking up - all the best sharing your “Home” with the world!

Dear Tilisha,

What a beautiful definition of home. Thank you for sharing your growing understanding of what and where is the place we can call our home. I have benefited so much from your personal account. Sometimes I too wonder where my home is and I often ask myself where, what???? I grew up in many homes in my childhood as my father had a government job. After marriage again, I relocated to another state. Then when my marriage ended I came back to my hometown and again relocated to my current city where I live for a better job and a life away from old painful memories. As luck would have it I began travelling almost every other week and started living in hotels of guest houses when I traveled on work. I shuttle between the city I live in and my hometown every year. Sometimes I too wonder which is my home. I know now home is where we feel whole.

Keep writing and keep empowering others.

Love always,
