Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. Steve Jobs
How many people have tried to live up to the expectations of others and have failed? Searching deep inside for more meaning? You examine your life to the miniscule detail trying to find a sense of purpose to everything you’ve done…..
What is it about pleasing others, ensuring that you do not disappoint that has people in such a conundrum?
I, on the other hand, have tried to live my life well…to seek out the pleasures and accomplishments which befits my personality, my drive, my goals……I too have sought out life’s purpose wondering why God placed me here….indeed searching for what was meant for me…………………
Every one of us has aspirations, we seek out others to give us validation. Yet, at the same time we seem to disappoint ourselves, never thinking that we are good enough……and I ponder upon this…wondering why we berate ourselves so severely? Where does it get us?
We must live this life well…find joy in every day things, take pride in our accomplishments, find love, be loved–
embrace the wonder of this thing called life………..
