InnerSelf's Daily Inspiration

May 21, 2024

The focus for today is:

If I feel my life has no purpose,
that's not my life. That can change.

Today's inspiration was written by Brandie Jefferson:

Research has shown that adults with a higher sense of purpose lead longer, healthier, and happier lives. They have lower rates of Alzheimer’s disease and heart and other cardiovascular problems.

The people in your life are going to have a very, very big impact on that. If you find yourself surrounded by people who bring you down… that’s going to have an impact. On the flipside, if you’re surrounded by people who lift you up and who infuse your life with positivity, that’s going to have an impact, too.

And that, is good news. If you’re feeling like your life has no purpose, that’s not how it’s always going to be. That’s not your life. That can change.

Today's inspiration was adapted from the article:
     This Is What Gives Older Adults More Sense of Purpose
     Written by Brandie Jefferson.

This is Marie T. Russell, co-publisher of, wishing you a day of finding purpose (today and every day)

Comment from Marie:
As we've all heard, probably more than once, the only certain thing in life is change. So wherever you find yourself now, that can and will change. Just make up your mind and let your heart guide the way.

Our focus for today: If I feel my life has no purpose, that's not my life. That can change.
