We trade freedom for security every day.
Many stay in unhappy/unhealthy relationships for financial reasons.
Though they bring us little or no pleasure, we choose to continue jobs in which we are monetarily successful but personally disengaged.
We choose friends we think will take us places but remain detached.
Often the elderly give up their independence and wealth for physical safety.
The younger generation sometimes tosses happiness to the wind to please their elders or to make enough money to pave their way in the world. Maybe their choices are controlled by the purse strings of a parent.
Perhaps we become accustomed to certain standards of living and can’t imagine life otherwise. We drop our dreams for comfort.
You know deep down whether or not you are leading an authentic life.
You know whether or not you’ve been bought out.
It is time to decide if you are happy with life as it is.
Only you can choose the path which brings joy to your soul.
Do not let someone else be in charge of your future.
You feel the callings of your spirit.
You have the power to go where it leads.
You are in control of your life.
Live it your way.
Living in the Gap
March 6, 1012 – For the love of babes
I answer the door and she dives from her daddy’s arms into mine. Smiling ear to ear, ringlets bouncing from her head, she hugs me tightly. She lifts her head slightly to look me in the eyes and snuggles into my neck. It sure feels good to have been missed.
