There is a methodical orgy of life, emotions, feelings, death and what is actually supposed to be. There is this obsession with perfection in life that is truly unattainable by even the most wealthy of human beings. There is an unrealistic goal set by what society tells us should be the goal of ultimate happiness.
How does one achieve ultimate happiness though? Is it through the conventional time frame:
- Finish college in 4 years.
- Get married.
- Get a lucrative career.
- Buy a house with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms with a white picket fence and a wrap around porch.
- Have 2.5 children.
- Work for 30 years until retirement.
- Retire and play golf until you die.
What about everyone else? What about those of us who do not choose to follow the perfect cookie cutter idea of what life should be? What about those of us who have not yet found the key to our happiness no matter how hard we try?
I would love to say there is nothing wrong with us. Society says there is something wrong with is when we are single with children, working and still trying to find our way in our thirties. By now, in your mid thirties, you most certainly should know exactly what you want to be doing for the rest of your life and be well on your way to achieving those things.
What you may see as your life purpose may not in fact be your destiny. No one exactly knows what lies in the future because at the drop of a dime, your life can be flipped completely upside down….
Stop just trying to find your purpose. It can absolutely change at any moment…
