Is your life turning out as you pictured it? Yes? No? Why?
My life is amazing, but not what I thought it was going to be...More to come.....
No it didn't. Not because it couldn't but for another reason. When I was a boy growing up I was blessed to have a father and mother who loved travel and adventure. The taught the five of us kids to experience life in that same spirit. It was always well and good to have a focus on a direction to take us toward some specific goal but life should not be totally linear. There is a joy and fulfillment in experiencing life's randomness without reserve. Dad always said not to be afraid to try different things and so we always did. Because of that, I never channeled my energies toward a vision of how it should end up. We always were open to change and the next great adventure. And, we have had many.
Some have a gift of plotting out their lives and getting where they want to go. I've never had that gift, didn't even give it a thought, taking each day as it came. Yes, I've had a great life so far with plenty of wonderful experiences, lots of love, all mixed in with the inevitable negative stuff as well. Not uneventful - but blessed and balanced in more ways than I can count.
No, but honestly I think my life is turning out much better than I originally envisioned it. Why? Because what I have experienced to date, the good, the bad and the ugly has enriched my life. I have been open to learning along the way and that is filling me up, fulfilling me. It's not over yet and there is much to discover. The greatest of all that I have learned is to be grateful for what I have, what and where I am and what I do.
I couldn't possibly have envisioned the magnitude and significance of being human!
Peace be with you always!
I do not know. I really never had a master plan for my life. I wanted to finish college, get marry, children and a good job. I did not try to fill in any of the details around those major events, which have often been surprising, happy and disappointing over the years.
Therefore, I cannot give a yes or no answer. Life was never meant to be that predictable--it would actually be pretty boring. Certainly, we have all faced situations we wished we could have avoided--death of parents, spouse, friend, loss of job, financial troubles, natural disasters...but we do go on.
