We grow up into jobs and assume that we’re well and happy. We rely on our status and self-image and the more we do so, we fall apart with who we are. Just like an old friend that we haven’t seen for ages, the disconnect with ourselves is real.
We are in continuous change, as we should be. Our taste buds are changing, our bodies, mind, understanding of the world. Sometimes people feel like the age they were at when they graduated from university, got married or had their child. I believe this reflects the connection that exists between us and the present moment at those times that we see as decisive moments in our lives and they probably are.
Setting goals that mean as much to us as landmarks of life mean to society can be done. What is your next big thing? Even better, what is your first big thing? What is something that’s worth putting your time, energy and money on the line. Get to know yourself now – not just the parent, the graduate, the employee. You you – in the present moment. The world is as big as we perceive it. Think big.
