Good morning! Today let’s consider that creating a life that reflects your values and satisfies your soul is a rare achievement.
Ambition is only understood if it is to rise to the top of some imaginary ladder of success. Someone who takes an undemanding job because it affords them the time to pursue other interests and activities is considered a flake.
A person who abandons a career to stay home and raise children is considered not to be living up to their potential – as if a job title and salary are the sole measure of human worth.
You will be told in a hundred ways, some subtle and some not, to keep climbing, and never be satisfied with where you are, who you are, and what you are doing.
There are a million ways to sell yourself out, and I guarantee you will hear about them. To invent your own life’s meaning is not easy, but it is still allowed, and I think you’ll be happier for the trouble.
Much love and untold blessings!~~Chaplain Roger Ward
