As an adult, something happens at the end of every year. I find myself reflecting over the previous year’s accomplishments and failures. For the most part, I’m not too hard on myself and I’m always impressed at some of the obstacles I’ve overcome (with the help of the Almighty). I pride myself on being productive and try to be reasonable when it comes to goals and my life mission.
Today is January 4, 2016 and I arrived at work thinking “what am I going to do with my life?” I love my job, and for the most part life is grand, but without growth and evolution…we inevitably die. I started thinking about the rat race that we all succumb to if we get complacent. Go to work, pay bills, travel and little and do it all again. I am satisfied with today…but my tomorrows are another story. How can I make this year even better than 2015? What am I ultimately going to do with my life?
Like a millennial, I googled ‘What Am I Going To Do With My Life’ and came across thee most exhilarating article from Tiny Buddha. The author, Jammes McWhinney, sounded like he spoke to my every inaudible thought at that moment. I found the post inspirational not just for the ‘I need to make a change’ type of person, but also for someone who may have questions on their current path. We all are in some realm of self discovery as we journey life. Check out the article and let me know your thoughts on the questions and your response.
