My name is Yohanes Steven Tanoto.
The past few weeks have been tough for me. My lifelong struggles started to get the better of me and it seems like I will lost the battle.
But I won’t give up, and here’s why :
He is my strength. I believe in Him and I know He wants me to keep on living and be a blessing for others. Otherwise, He won’t create me or let me breathe until this moment.
A lot of people loved me and to give up on life would be devastating for them. My family, my girlfriend, my friends, and even strangers. I will not let them down.
I found my life purpose.
This keeps me alive. Without life purpose, it’s easy to give up on life. But with life purpose, you have something to hold on to. Something to focus on when you are down and devastated.
So here’s my declaration of new life :
I will pray more.
I will start my day by praying, listening to worship songs, and read the bible. I will close my day the same way.
I will serve God by being a blessing for others.
I believe there are a lot of ways to serve God. I will do what I can do best to serve God : By being a blessing for others and inspire people. I will write in a blog to share positive insights and stories, and I will write a book to inspire people and make people happy.
That’s how I’m going to serve Him.
I will be healthier physically and mentally.
Health has always been my problem and I will do my best to be better at it. I will drink less coffee, alcoholic beverages, and soda drinks. I will drink more water. I will exercise more. I will stop eating at midnights. I will control what I eat.
I will pursue my dreams and I will not stop until I achieve them. Then I will start a new dream and restart the cycle.
As I said before, having life purpose is important. I will turn my life purpose into dreams and goals, and I will wake up each day with spirit and determination to achieve them.
Each day, I will make action steps that will help me get closer to my dreams.
I will be more positive in life.
Negative thoughts, voices, and hallucinations are all over my head every seconds in my life. A lot of time I let them become me, and consume me. I even spill those negative thoughts out and it’s not good for my loved ones.
I promise I will fight harder and be more positive.
How? By praying more, spending time on practicing gratitude, listening to religious song more and sing every phrase of it, and of course, by spending time to have fun, relax, and enjoy life.
I will be happier and make you happy.
Being happy is one of the key to being healthy. I will be happier, and one of the easiest way to achieve that is to make people happy.
About that life purpose
I watched a video about finding our life purpose. Yes, I’ve known mine for a long time, but I’ve never write it down and declare it out loud. So I will do it now.
