Purpose through Words

“Each of us is born with a box of matches inside us but we can’t strike them all by ourselves.” ― Laura Esquivel, Like Water for Chocolate

Who am I?

I go by Monty. I just turned 26 and I’m a little overwhelmed by all the possibilities this life has to offer. I am guilty of taking things for granted and letting the day’s potential slip away.

What do I write about?

I write to reflect on the daily happenings that make an impact on the way I define myself as a person. Writing puts things in perspective like nothing else. I have found that the worst days can be the most rewarding so long as I give them meaning.

Why does it matter?

I have chosen to give myself a reason to write. Through writing these stories and reflections, I aspire to achieve a higher level of self-awareness and live each day with an increasing sense of purpose. By improving the way I experience my life, I hope I will become better able to offer insight to others.

What’s next?

As the opening quote suggests, I’m gonna need a little bit of help to get where I want to go, though much of the work is up to me. In my next post, I will consider some characteristics and activities that could help me transform my currently limiting lifestyle into one that is limitless.
