I have never felt like I have had a purpose. I never knew what I wanted to do in life. Not until recently when I lost a good friend to suicide did I feel like I had a purpose. My friend was always the one to make everyone smile even if she was not okay. I never knew she felt the way she did. After I found out she was gone I made a promise to myself that I would live my life like her.

Make sure I make at least 1 person feel good about themselves. Feel at home. Feel happy. After I made that promise my life did a complete 180. I got a fantastic job that I love. I get to help people everyday. I got into an amazing relationship. I get to meet people from all over the US with my job and Leo even more people. I don’t know where I would be if I didn’t make that promise. I still say the promise to myself every day.
