Head down, shoulder to the grindstone, keep plodding, don’t give up. These are wonderful suggestions for life, that is until we discover we have been so focused on the individual steps we take in life, that we have forgotten why we are taking those steps in the first place.
The parent who willingly works long hours, sometimes two jobs, does so from the purest of motivations; their love for their children; supporting their children so they will not have to do the same thing, but they often forget the child in the equation. A financially well supported child still needs love. If the goal was to provide for the child, love is more important than a new pair of designer jeans. In our quest to provide, we forget what the goal is.
Where are you going? Have you taken some time to refresh your memory about your goal, or have you allowed yourself to be buffeted and blown by the winds of everyday life? I am a huge proponent of living in the Now, which you can read about in my book Think, Believe, Receive, three steps to an amazing life, but balance is essential to actually living that amazing life. We cannot allow ourselves to become so focused on the individual steps we take that we loose sight of where we want those footsteps to take us.
If your life seems meaningless, you don’t seem to be making any progress, perhaps all you have to do is remind yourself where you want to go, and make sure you are headed in that direction.
