“And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.” – Abraham Lincoln
Have you ever wondered, what is the purpose of your life? We are so busy fulfilling our duties, doing our job, achieving our short-term and long-terms goals that we forget we are all born for a reason. Present day lifestyle has turned us into machines that do their job, rest when required and get back to work again. We are forgetting that there is more to our life! This is especially true with women. Yes, women have all the freedom in the world but accompanied with that is also a big bunch of expectations. However the situation is a lot different from what it used to be in 1848, when the women’s liberation movement in the US had just begun. Then, women were only restricted to the household affairs. Their family and kids were their world. Well, when it comes to family it is still the same. Career and financial decision making responsibilities now have also cottoned on to the already existing household responsibilities.
Follow Your Passion
There was a time, when I had to decide on taking up my hobby as a profession and start my own venture. I had to think hard before making such a crucial professional commitment. Do you know why? It is because I am a woman and children’s lives revolve around me. I mean the world to them. Despite several hurdles I went on to work towards my goals because I knew I wanted to change lives and make them realize that the world outside is waiting for them. I knew that there is definitely more to my life than simply doing a nine to five job and some back home cook, clean and sleep. I could figure out what I want in my life because I used to read other inspiring stories of people who went out of their way and truly lived their life!
Stuck In a Nine To Five Job?
If you are somebody who sits in an air conditioned office and works on your computer all day long, try to peep out of the window once in a while. Little sunshine can do some magic and help you realize what your true passion is. All of us develop a lot of hobbies as kids, but when we grow up we only choose those professions that will help us earn our living. “Rome was not built in a day”; similarly transforming your hobbies in to something substantial is not an easy task. You must understand that you are here for something special!
“A creative man is motivated by the desire to achieve and not by the desire to beat others”- Ayn Rand
Bored Of Daily Household Chores?
Are you a housewife and you spend your entire day doing daily chores? I want to tell you that I was once just like you. Sheer determination and belief that I can change things for myself brought me here. Taking care of your family is the most beautiful thing to do, but you have an identity of your own. You only have to look for it! Insight is a vital aspect of this exercise, look into yourself, and ask yourself how you want to spend your day. Recognize yourself; I am sure you will find someone really special.
