Twelve months ago I was suicidal, despondent, empty, disconnected .I felt I had nothing to live for
Circumstances kept many trapped in sadness, silence kept many family and friends from my door
I felt isolated, I felt alone convinced I was nothing, not worthy of anyone’s love or compassion
I could not make sense of my surroundings, I thought I gave so much but in return I gained devastation.
For many months this world was bleak, death became a glamorous beauty, living was no longer a motivation
Then came the vision and subsequent birth of KAW community services, I tapped into purpose and my life found a new destination
Birthed from death, came a passion a desire to help, grow and spread solutions and awareness
I no longer rose wondering, questioning, I rose willing, as now I knew my calling, I had found strength in my purpose
Can you look back and reflect on a time when you questioned your purpose in life?
Unhappy in your job, a sense of demotivation, depression, persistent worries and strife?
Having no purpose can change your outlook on life and your views from within
Causing you to become vulnerable to stress and your vision in life grim
Purpose is an essential characteristic that is craved after by many human beings
we face psychological set backs when purpose from our lives is fleeing
Purpose is fundamental to the inner fulfillment of life, the drive to overcome hopelessness
Giving us all something to strive towards, bringing substance to fill that nothingness
The question is asked why do children carry knives and what can we do to make things better
Connect them to purpose, by creating opportunities is a good first goal setter
Without purpose we are more vulnerable to boredom , anxiety and depression
We lack self belief, self worth, becoming more susceptible to peer pressure and negative altercations
To deal with the outcomes, some turn to mind altering substances that relieve us from our mental discord
This can be alcohol or drugs, but as a community can we not offer a greater reward?
What happened to recruitment fairs? where all children have a chance to explore corporate careers
A pilot, engineer, politician, judge. Self worth and self preservation is something that shouldn’t be rare
When you have purpose you do not wake wondering what am I going to do with myself
Or as our young people say “what’s the motive?” as purpose creates a spiritual wealth
When you rise in purpose, you’re engaged and motivated to succeed and live
Tackling the emotion that lies behind the behaviour is one of the greatest supports we can give
With purpose there is drive, Life feels easier, less stressful and somewhat less complicated
With purpose there is hope, there is a desire to live, to achieve, your whole presence feels motivated.
With purpose, negative things happen but your outlook on life is more positive and you embrace positive change
With purpose, we have focus, we are inspired, we have determination and zeal within our range
Government, use the funding to create opportunities so young people have focus and get up and go
Help them to become motivated with life, provide equal options, ensure they all know
How to access strong careers, give them an opportunity to successfully earn
If they can become street entrepreneurs then they clearly have the ability to learn
Finding purpose creates mental strength that makes it more challenging for negativity to seep in
I say creating opportunities that motivate purpose is a definite solution where we win
Every business has a purpose, a mission statement and an aim
Please I humbly ask that you afford our young people the same.
