Strife, change and renewal is part of living.
I read a WordPress blog yesterday where the blogger complained they were bored, that there was nothing worth watching on television, and they disliked their job search. How sad, this person has no meaning in their life.
Goals, dreams and hopes gives life meaning; from them passion flows, when we have focus and motivation to face each new day with joy.
Often we set limits upon ourselves, upon our dreams; we lose the fire for life so we become bored, escaping into addictions of television, Facebook and pizza. Not even the hope of finding a job seems to inspire such people. Against this then we face a choice to live a worthless life, or go and destroy those limits, where we then start living.
To destroy limits we face an energy cost, a requirement to face our reality, our fears, and the consequences of change we bring about through our actions. Change is the main issue: if we want to lose weight then the body is going to complain; if we close down Facebook, lots of false “friends” are going to complain; if we follow our own dream, someone who wanted us to follow their dream will conflict with us. Neither life, nor change is easy, but it has meaning when you start destroying your limits every day and every moment.
