When Momma Gump is on her deathbed, an anxious and concerned Forrest pleads, “Momma, what’s my destiny”?
Momma replies, “You’re gonna have to figure that out for yourself. Life is a box of chocolates, Forrest. You never know what you’re gonna get.”
We all want answers, just like Forrest wanted his momma to answer his question about his destiny.
But it doesn’t work that way.
And it especially doesn’t work that way for something as important as your own destiny. Your own life purpose. Your own special mission and the reason that you’re on this earth.
Most things, and certainly all the important things in life, are things we have to figure out for ourselves.
Are you asking others to do the hard work that only you can do?
Are you hoping someone else will figure it out for you?
What’s your destiny?
