Or, are you questioning this moment in your life?
As women, we often try to live up to the expectations of others. There seem to be so many "shoulds" in our lives.
I have been talking to several women in my age range recently and realize that there are many of us who are feeling frustrated by life's circumstances. We are divorced or widowed. We were stay at home moms for much of our adult lives and have been left without the means to support ourselves adequately.
We were caught between a generation of older women who primarily stayed at home and were provided for, and a generation of younger women who were taught to value and take care of themselves.
We were the young women who were metaphorically or actually burning our bras, while at the same time our parents were encouraging us to go to college and find a husband to support us.
We are women who still feel that we have a lot to contribute, and yet we are unable to find jobs in a poor economy and in an atmosphere of revering younger workers.
We are happy with who we are, but we are unhappy with our circumstances.
So do you believe that you should go out and look for your life's purpose, or do you think you should stop, love the moment you are living in and let that purpose come to you?
What do you think?
