What are your dreams? What are your goals? What is it that you love? Are you engaging in those things? Are you activating that power or are you going through life like a hamster on the wheel, churning out an existence? If you are gainfully employed, making a good living, taking care of yourself, your family, your business or whatever, I applaud you. You are contributing to society whether you are just getting by or making big bank and keeping up with the Jones. I appreciate the value added that you bring to your surroundings by being yourself and actively engaging in this life. It is a wonderful thing and a blessing that many do not have. With that being said, it doesn't mean that you are happy or fulfilled. If you are not, what are you doing about it.
My oldest brother is absolutely my hero. He is phenomenal and amazing to me. He is probably one of the smartest people I know. He has various accomplishments under his belt as well as some failed attempts, which is okay. What I appreciate about him is his practice of doing what he loves. My brother has had several hobbies over the years and when he is engaged, he goes all in. He has been a DJ/sound guy, he has decided that he is going to learn how to play the guitar, and he is a pilot just to name a few. He does not just dabble but commits to these pursuits. He does these things because they bring him joy. They add another layer to his life. They are an escape and in that escape he releases stress. Sometimes we have to break up the humdrum of everyday life. Get out of the box and do what we love, even if it is as a hobby. Our minds and soul with thank us for it.
