When you stop doing the things that make you you, you stop living purposefully

It’s really been a long time coming and I can say “life’s happening”

Caught in the web of this thing called focus, had to deal with life as an undegraduate and slay while at it.

Finally out of the system (only for a while I guess, till there’s another degree to bag ๐Ÿ˜„) and glad to be back at this.

Okay, I know I can get us to relate to this๐Ÿ‘‡

Well, We all go through this phase of withdrawing from what we love doing, our unique activities, our hobbies, our very true identity to focus on a project we currently have to smash!

I personally would always advice a friend to step down his/her regular a bit, at least for the period of the project. We all do this, we are all victims of this.

But com’on isn’t it unfair?

One shouldn’t stop what he loves doing the most for some boring project. If doing any project will separate you from what you love doing the most i.e a positive unique feature about you that makes you full of purpose and give you so much meaning while doing it, then that project should be dropped.

Why focus so much on a thing that separates you from purpose, from essence, from hope!๐Ÿ˜ฉ?

Don’t get me wrong, it’s okay if we decide to separate ourselves from our distractions every now and then to achieve a goal, that’s dope.

It gets wrong and boring when the project you’re facing is totally different from the purpose you’re chasing. When you lose yourself while at it.

We often bury our purpose and essence when we deceive ourselves saying we’re keeping away from it in order to complete a present project or goal.

There’s no goal without a purpose, a goal makes no sense without it being inline with what you love doing that has been assigned to you and when you do it, gives you so much essence.

You are on a project and have to stop some purposeful acts, that’s a boredom mission, a very stressful one you’ll keep complaining about.

What’s a project without a purpose?

What’s a project without your heart?

Let’s keep this conversation going๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡


  1. Beautiful piece๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š. Indeed purpose is our place of fulfillment and deep inner satisfaction.
    Any project that resonates with purpose is the real deal.

  2. Right…
    Trying to imagine what a project without purpose is and I cant imagine…
    Everything we do, our fun activities, our serious work, our everyday life should be geared towards purpose.
    That’s why we’re here…that’s what makes us unique.

    Lovely Reminder๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜


  3. A project could be contradicting our hobby but the both of them are important and needs to be achieved……..our hobbies and talents have a way of bringing everything in….find the linking ingredient and we can move smoothly with the ‘unpleasant’ project and the easy going hobby

    Thank you baby for bringing this up……looking forward to more๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—
