Are you living the life you were meant to?

I get Ripples every Monday and today’s seem very apropos for a new year. So as we prepare for a new beginning, lets keep in mind staying true to ourselves. Here goes:

PEBBLE
Is the life I’m living
the life that wants
to live in me?
-Parker Palmer

BOULDER
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
-Steve Jobs, submitted by Nick in New Jersey

PONDER
As we prepare to wrap up 2011 and launch another year, this is a great week to think about the lives we are living: decisions made, paths taken, opportunities pursued.  If you conclude that any of your choices have led you in a direction that is not working as you intended, decide that 2012 will be about charting a new course so that a year from now you can more confidently answer YES to the question raised in the pebble above.

Peace,
Paul
