What is your life purpose?
Ever wonder why you do what you do? What is your purpose in life?
In the silence of my studio in Staffordshire, and looking at the clouds and the blue skies above me, it is incredible to think that we’re constantly moving. The world is spinning as I’m creating, and I am thinking about my why as I grab my paint brush. Why do I do what I do I ask myself.
I watch two magpies that have recently decided to come into my garden. To my amusement, I see how one of them pushes the wood pigeon out of the way for the bird seed. A clear spring morning, and I get ready for my live facebook video at 11am.
However, I must admit, social media is a lot of noise isn’t it? I wonder will anyone even watch on replay. Once again, I wonder what is my purpose in life and should I talk about it this week on my live? Sometimes I don’t even know why, but I keep searching. I do know there’s a deep yearning inside me to create some magic and to make the world a better place.
Bringing Joy through my art is my life purpose
I have all these ideas of just creating this magic with colour that I want to bring to life into your world. I want people to be able to look at my art and to feel a sense of joy.
Is there a bigger purpose in life?
In fact, although I want to make the world a happier place, I think perhaps there is a bigger calling than that. I don’t know if I can achieve it, but it is to do with animals. The bigger wish would be to sell enough art to be able to create a sanctuary for wild animals they need to be protected at every cost.
Animals like elephants for example. A safe haven to stop pochers and the ivory trade. Why does that happen? Greed? Corruption? Or is there a deeper reason, who knows? Perhaps they do it because they need to pay for food? I’m not condoning this by any means but just trying to understand the cause before we can change things.
Anyway, it got me thinking about why I do art? What is the bigger picture of my life. Perhaps as the world spins round it is good to take time out and reflect.
What is your purpose in life? Ever stop to wonder about it?
