I believe we are here for a purpose. Something more than just existing, more than just day to day. Maybe I’ve got it wrong.
Maybe we want it to be more, to find somehow the world, is a bit better because we passed through, that it wasn’t just about what we achieved, where we went to school, how much money we made. But we get lost in others vision of success, and see it through their eyes…
Maybe though, we find that God has other plans, that the job you were given to do, the impact you make is in the day to day mundane. So we fight back and try to make it all align. Chase dreams we know are unfulfilling deny the gifts to reap in valued rewards.
Big, little , small or huge, the impact, the impact is not who you are, but what you do.
Listen to your heart, don’t deny it’s longings. If you are a high powered executive but spend your free time writing music… Let go of the trappings of success and be successful at being you and let the world hear the rhythm of your heart.
I guess I’ve learned ( or have I?) that you can fight who you are and you can do what you want to do, until you wake up one day and realize it’s time to do what you were meant to do…
A friend once told me, you can get fired from jobs, but you can’t get fired from the job God called you to do… But maybe I’m wrong….
