What's My Purpose? Asking a Better Question.

I’ve observed in my life and the lives of others that our effort to live with purpose and meaning often creates disillusions. False expectations.

Because my desire wasn't to begin a political conversation, creating side-taking banter about candidates or partisan preferences, I deleted my post.

Then, I decided to post what's really key to me. What I’d most like to say - in a political conversation or not. This certainly isn’t complete, but this is my heart…
