“Where Am I In Life?

New Life Ranch in Colcord, Oklahoma

There comes a time in everyone’s life that can make a difference.  Too often we are rushing around making a living, raising our kids or grand kids, doing household chores, and having a social life with friends, a church,  other organizations, and/or extended family.  It is time to remember what we had wanted to do with our life and make some choices about it based on our experiences with life.  It is never too early or too late to do this.

Too often we get penned in by decisions (especially when we are younger) which were made for us by somebody else.  Some we may have out grown.  We may have made choices as a young adult based on what we knew then about ourselves and life which no longer fit us based on what we know now.   Some big decisions people make  early in life are such things as marrying someone or locking themselves into a certain vocational goal which involves a long-term commitment.

Of course there are some decisions in life that are difficult or impossible to change.  Having children is one of those kind of decisions.  But now that we are living longer, we can pursue some things in life that we put off pursuing earlier in life.  Also so often we settle for something when we think we can’t get what we really want.   For example,  we take a job that we know down deep underneath is not the right fit for us because we need to make a living and/or we can’t move because of obligations.

For many of us, early in our lives, we are taught what we should think, what we should do, and often what we should feel.  If we don’t escape this influence, we may never know who we really are.  I am not encouraging you to throw out the baby with the bath water; but you should take a look at what you have been led to believe and evaluate it based on your own experiences with life.  As far as I am concerned, things that I have been taught have turned out to be both good and bad guidelines for my life.  What works for one person may or may not work for another.
