Welcome to Day 2 of The Embracing Your Divatude 31 Day Challenge – Your Purpose Defined! Today we are focusing on being divas with purpose and what drives us.
If you are new to the challenge, you can catch up here.
Briefly, the month of May is dedicated to focusing on our Divatude – being driven, inspiring, victorious and called to action in our personal and professional lives. As women, different aspects of divatude impact our daily walk at all times. Our focus with this challenge is taking the time to reflect on our daily attitudes and actions and ensuring we are focusing on what will lift us and others around us up.
Your Purpose Defined
Why do you do what you? What drives you? What brings you happiness and satisfaction?
We all should have something that wakes us up each day and gives us that extra uumph to get up and do something productive. If things in your world seem “off” or you just don’t feel motivated to do anything, most times its because you are not walking in your purpose.
Many people have no clue what “purpose” is let alone what their specific role is. Purpose can be defined as “the reason for which something exists or is done, made, used, etc” or “an intended or desired result; end; aim; goal”.
That’s a lot to try and swallow at one time. It sounds profound and deep and IT IS! However your life’s purpose doesn’t have to be starting a crusade to feed all the homeless and hungry people. It can be something as simple as tutoring students at a local school in your free time or donating to a local non-profit organization.
Today’s Challenge: What Spurs You To Action
Simply put: Your purpose should be something that spurs you to action in a positive way.
Today’s challenge: Spend a few moments thinking about what issues and activities cause positive action in your life. Do you dedicate time to whatever it is on a regular basis? If not, think of ways you can start.

At this point in my life the only thing that makes me feel positive is when I am in church.

Now that spring is here I am so much more motivated to do something. I have started a lot of vegetables from seed and I am sharing the excess with a community garden

If I get up and workout right away, I get motivated and stay that way throughout the day. Also, sunshine! If it is sunny out I am in a much better mood and ready to take on the world. My dad says I am "solar powered", and it is very true.

I love that you say that our life's purpose does not have to be on some grand scale, but it is what makes us satisfied as individuals.
