Silently Sitting with Ourselves

Are you asking yourself questions that you never really had a chance to? Where am I headed, to what purpose, how am I getting there? Am I travelling a road that I picked?

By the time we grow mature enough to make a choice we often times allow others to make decisions for us. Are we going to study different degrees, get a steady job, follow paths that other people have traveled and have failed miserably.

They are the people thinking that just because their finances didn’t work out after 40+ years in a job, things will magically be different for their grown children. The people that then recognize the frustrations and limitations of 9-5 and shrug their shoulders. And when our life falls apart we can always look at our children and think ‘They have their whole life ahead of them’.
