Failure to Launch

“I don’t believe people are looking for the meaning of life as much as they are looking for the experience of being alive.”  – Joseph Campbell

I woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning.   I was cranky and totally frustrated with everything and everybody.  As the day wore on I only got more of it.  What’s the point?  What am I doing here?  Why am I here?   Hey – I am only human.

Have you ever been here?

Sometimes we may lose sight of our dreams.  We may get into our heads and analyze what is not working.  We may worry, complain and whine as to why we aren’t moving forward.  We even find reasons and excuses for not attaining a goal or even worse, blame someone or something else for our failure.

But deep inside, there is a voice that inspires us to do our work.  It tells us that we are here on the planet to make a contribution…a contribution only we can make.  It is your heart voice and it speaks clearly.  But sometimes our head gets in the way and clouds our vision of what our true purpose is.  We may accomplish a lot but we are too tired and distracted to enjoy ourselves.  We lose sight of those things that really have meaning for us.  We can’t hear the heart voice – our truth.

We can live our life on purpose by answering the questions that interest us.  The voice of truth inside us will always have the answer so that we can re-connect with the energy to live the life we  are meant to live.

So my question today is :  Am I willing to make the contributions I am here to make?

What side of the bed will you wake up on tomorrow and what question will you ask?
