So what is it that you want out of life? That’s a question I have been asking myself more and more lately. I haven’t come up with a complete answer yet and it’s becoming more and more frustrating. I don’t know, I feel like maybe I am the only one that is struggling with this. Maybe not, could be that some of you are struggling with the same thing or maybe you did struggle with it but now you are content as you strive toward accomplishing what you want out of life. I would dearly love to hear from you. Find out the process you went through to discover what you wanted out of life and then how you went about pursuing it.
Yes, I am a Christian, yes, I want to serve Christ and do my part in helping others come to know Him as their Savior. And to be part of helping others grow in their spiritual walk. But what else, what else do I want from life? I have the greatest wife a man could ever have – four incredible children, 2 faithful and loving dogs along with a great jeep that I am able to drive around in. I know I probably just need to get over myself and move on ….but no, I need to answer this once and for all!!
I am not just talking about what someone may say about me as they deliver my eulogy someday. I think everyone hopes to be well thought of after they die but what about as we live! When others look at my life, what does it reflect to them? No, see, I don’t think that’s the right question. What do I want my life to reflect to those around me? Still not the right question. I think that tends to speak to people’s accomplishments.
Maybe contentment is what I am really looking for. To be content with my life. No, still not right, I am pretty content with my life. Some things could be better and then again, somethings could be worse – all in all, I am pretty pleased with life in general at the moment. Why can I not answer this simple question – What do I want out of life? I will continue to ponder this and get back with you.
In the meantime, I would love to hear any comments, questions, etc from you guys!!
Peace and thanks for reading.
