I talk about how our perception or interpretation of events is more important than the event itself ALL THE TIME. I talk about it because I believe it and I have seen huge shifts in my own life as a result of challenging my perceptions and interpretations.

No one else can tell you your purpose. It is something that you must discover and determine for yourself.
