GMP family, let's talk about purpose.
If you've read my story, then you would know about my life-altering car accident in 2009. Since then, I've had this lingering feeling of wanting to find my purpose. The definition from Dictionary.com is, "the reason for which something exists or is done, made, used, etc." For me, I've always felt a strong urge to help people in any way that I could. Whether family, friendships, relationships, career, or just strangers, I was always drawn to giving, providing, assisting, and/or encouraging in some way. However, along the way, even with pure intentions I've found that I cannot or will not waste my purpose of giving on people whose true intentions are to use you for your kindness. I've had people drain me emotionally, spiritually, romantically, and financially while thinking that it was my purpose to aid in support to certain people. After experiences of that nature, I've found myself becoming a bit reclusive to shield my heart from second guessing the all time question of, "Why am I here?"
I know you are probably wondering, what does this have to do with clothes? Although, GMP Life does sell clothing and soon other products, the overall goal is to give back. When I said let's take a journey, I mean that. So, why did I start with purpose? Well, that IS why GMP Life was created. God's Masterpiece Lifestyle is just that, a lifestyle. It's a journey to becoming better in all aspects of life. It's an odyssey of being imperfect, and learning yourself and what/who God is to you, not what others say He/She is. I look at the world today and see how so much of it is spent castigating people who may think differently than we do. Why? If there is no harm done to themselves or others, why is it for us to judge? Now, I'm not saying that we as humans do not judge! Let's be real, we are a bunch of judgy individuals, but it is not your job to voice that concern to people about how they choose to live their life and time here on this planet. We are all imperfect humans just existing and trying to understand our, you've guessed it..... purpose.
So, I've said all of that to say, GMP Life is for us all. That's why our slogan is, "You see imperfection, but God only sees His masterpiece." We are all perfectly made. We all get so caught up in this material world of buying the nicest home, nicest cars, most expensive jewelry, or even the most aesthetically pleasing mate. Once again, why? Really ask yourself, who or what am I doing or buying this for? Is truly for me, or is it for validation? Hey, I've been guilty of this too, but what I've found as I get older is, I don't need anyone's validation. Truth be told, when my time is close to being expired here, I will have one question.... DID I LIVE IN MY PURPOSE?
