So for those of you that don’t know I am also a writer for an incredible lifestyle site called Morning Marjolaine, that promotes slow, mindful, and intentional living. Recently I wrote an article for them entitled ” I Want Something Different Out Of Life”, and I thought it would be perfect to share with all of you because it is right in line with my mission and the purpose of The Sunday Series. So without further ado here is a portion of that article, and head on over to Morning Marjolaine read the rest of the article.
“I want something different. There I said it. I don’t know why it is so hard for me to say that, but it is something I have wanted to be able to voice for so long.
You see, I grew up around people who all did the same thing in life. They all had the same process and steps for how their life was supposed to go. Get good grades so you can go to a good school so you can get a good job so you can live the life you are supposed to live.
And I did all of those things. I got the grades, went to the great school, applied for the jobs, I did it all. But that was the problem! I did it all because it was what I was supposed to do, what I thought I wanted. But I was lying to myself.”
