You could say that I am a spiritual soul, a dreamer and a worshiper of the sun. I believe in loving your neighbor and that your life is what you make it, so make it good. I do not dream of being rich or of being a modern-day celebrity. I don’t judge you by what you do for a living or how many years you went to school. I don’t want to have lots of kids, live in a huge house and spend my days competing with the other ladies in my kid’s social network on how much money I have or how smart my kids are. I dream of a life of being free. Free from the constant pressure to be the same as everyone else. Free from the pressure I not knowingly put on myself to be like everyone else. Why does the pressure get to me when I don’t even want to live this life, The American dream? Isn’t there something else to life than this? I don’t know what that life would be. I just know it’s not like this. I am a very happy person and so grateful for my life. I just wonder why we put so much pressure on ourselves to live a life that no one even seems to enjoy living. Sometimes I believe I was born into the wrong century.
Then I think of the words of Jack Kornfield “Even the most exalted states and the most exceptional spiritual accomplishments are unimportant if we can not be happy in the most basic and ordinary ways, if we cannot touch one another and the life we have been given with our hearts”
Very random thoughts. I am not a blogger but this is what is on my mind on this beautiful Wednesday morning. 🙂
