Following Your Purpose!

Published July 25, 2019 by Shay Taree

So I know that this past weekend I had wrote a tweet talking about following my path and feeling like something was missing. Well let me explain just a little bit more.

Since I was a kid I’ve always like reading and watching the stories of people who are now famous. Like how they got there, their hardships, and finally making it. I’ve always thought my purpose was doing entertainment since I could never see myself working a typical 9-5 job. Sitting at a desk just didn’t seem to suit me and daydreaming of having my name in lights and people knowing my name always filled my head.

Now as an adult I still have those dreams. So when I watch stuff on tv or YouTube of my favorite actors/actress I start to panic thinking that something is missing and that I’m doing something wrong. It’s a weird feeling but all I can say is that it feels like something is calling my name and that I’m meant for something greater.

I guess that may be one of the reasons why I got involved with YouTube and blogging since it allows me to be creative and express myself. Also yes I do work a regular job and while I enjoy it I do know that it’s something I’m not meant to do forever.

This is what lead me to make that tweet. It was a way of telling myself that I would focus on my dreams more and also fulfill them. So here is to the future and following your dreams!

So please everyone that is out there be sure to follow your dreams no matter what people say.

Finding Your Life Purpose

Published May 21, 2019 by Shay Taree

Finding your life purpose is something that I feel like many of us continue to search for. Sometimes we think it’s one thing but then it turns out to be another.

What made me think of this topic is because of a book I’m currently listening to which is called “The Greater You” by Trent Shelton. In this book he starts out talking about how he knew his purpose was to help people and he thought it would be through football. Well football didn’t end up working out and he ended up doing motivational speaking and that turned out to be his life purpose and what he was meant to do.

For me at the age of 28 almost 29 I still don’t know what my life purpose is or what I’m meant to do. Right now I’m currently working a pretty good job but I’ve always thought that I was meant for more but I just don’t know what. I do know that I enjoy helping others and putting a smile on their face.

So far one of the things that I’ve done that makes me feel like I might be heading in the right direction is by doing YouTube and trying to keep up with this blog. I feel like sharing my love for anime on YouTube and also my experiences when it comes to anxiety, trying to spread positivity, and also just anything else I can think of is putting me in the right direction but sometimes I don’t know.

There are days where I feel just so lost and feel like I should just give up but then I think about what I would be doing instead and it makes me want to continue. This is because when I see my thoughts going that route I realize that I would be very bored and even more loss if I didn’t have this blog or my YouTube channel.

Right now that seems to be the thing I’m praying about the most and that’s finding my life purpose and pursuing that. I hope that the Lord points me in the right direction soon. But now I want to know your thoughts on this topic. Do you know your life purpose? Are you like me and still trying to figure it out? If you do know your life purpose then how did you find it and how did you know for sure?

Comment down below and let me know. I’m definitely interested to know what everyone has to say. Also feel free to comment any questions you have or any topics you would like me to talk about on here or even my YouTube channel if your an anime fan.

See you tomorrow!
