What motivates you? What fills your soul with purpose, joy, fulfillment, etc.?
What are you doing to exercise that fulfillment?
I don’t know what motivates me. I have thought that it was several different things, and in the end it may be. The greatest fulfillment I have ever experienced was in the Philippines on an evangelical mission trip. From sun-up to sun-down we were engaged in people. I loved it. I loved the interaction with the kids especially. They were all about being on my video camera, especially when I got to show them what they looked like. It was fascinating to them. I sang for them, talked to them, did hand puppets, and just enjoyed being around their smiling faces. The adults were almost indifferent but they were friendly in their own way. I represented a different way of life to them. The living conditions were very basic but it was all that was needed. There was no television, radio, or computer for me to loose myself in. All I had was people, prayer, and the Bible.
That may sound cheesy to an extent but to me that is fulfillment to the max. I cannot imagine the joy that would come from living that life each day. The struggles, the hope, the personal investment, the excitement, the lull, the fellowship. It is amazing.
Maybe I will find it again some day. For now, I will just keep being Keith and seeing how that turns out.
Sorry for the shortness and lack of depth on this post. I am about to go to bed after a long day but I wanted to be faithful to get it out before my “posting day” passes. Thanks for reading and please leave comments. Tell me what you are passionate about.
