Purpose

“An angel,” she said.

“That’s not a job,” her teacher replied. “Be serious. What do you actually want to be when you grow up?”

She ordered her eyes not to cry, she told her feet not to run from the classroom, she made her heart untwist. An angel would have to bring peace to worse situations than this. She breathed. Training was hard, but she was harder.

“I want to be so deeply at peace with myself that I can give peace to others,” she said.

“So, a doctor?” Her teacher offered.

“Doctors fix bodies. I want to heal souls.”

  1. Whoa. Thank you for this.

  2. Love this! make peace with yourself first by… letting go of wanting to give peace to others?

    • O my, now you really got me in a tizzy! Perhaps letting that go is important.

      I’ll letchu know if/how I figure out the whole internally-derived inner peace thing 😅

      • As some wise men once said… “Let go of trying to force peace. Just be (present). Let your light shine so bright we all gotta wear sunglasses. It gives permission to others to do the same… The gentle overcomes the rigid. Because he has given up helping, he is people’s greatest help.“ -ttc, sterling, etc. Who knows if they’re right but that’s where my thought came from. Loopdy loop logic lol.
