My Purpose, My Message, My Outline

I discovered my purpose and message.

Finding My Purpose

I was watching a video about finding your purpose. This one said it covered more than just discovering what you’re purpose is, it helps you figure out your message and how to make money using your purpose and message. I thought, “What have I got to lose?”
About halfway through, the lady said something along the lines of you have had your purpose with you your whole life. What is the one thing that is unique to you? What is the one thing your friends and family can identify as yours.

I have two things.

The first saying I use:It’s better to dance with a known demon than to make a change with an unknown angel.

I use it to explain why I returned to abusive partners, why I continued to let thieves in my house, why I didn’t try to date better quality men, etc…
What it means is:I know this evil and, though I hate it, I fear it less than the unknown that something different will bring me.

The other is:

The Earth is your oyster. What color is your Pearl? And why?

The color of your Pearl is a representation of your mood/outlook for the day. The why is telling me what the color represents to you.

My Message

It’s better to fight with a known demon than to dance with an unknown angel.

Yes. I changed it a little bit. I think this sounds better and it’s more accurate.

So, I’m thinking about these two sayings and trying to figure out how these could be my purpose and my message.

I needed a slogan of sorts. I have pretty much used these two sayings as a kind of protection against the judgements of people.

Then it hit me

I’m not sure how exactly these two phrases protected me, but I felt that they did.

Okay, so it suddenly hit me. I could use the Demon/Angel phrase as a slogan for my brand. Then, I thought I could use it as an outline for my blog posts.

Check this out:

Angel/demon saying outline

It’s better – the pro’s of the situation

To fight – the cons of the situation

With a known – show previous experiences with this situation and what happened

Devil – person in situation with me

Then to dance – description given by people as to why it’s better than what I’m used to

With an unknown – what scares me about the new situation and fears of how to handle it

Angel – person in this new situation with me.

What do you think? Should I use this as my outline or should I use the one I’ve heard other bloggers use?
I’m so grateful you stopped by to read my little article. Thank you very much. I look forward to reading your thoughts on which outline I should use. Maybe you have an idea for an outline that isn’t here…

Until next time…
