A Purposeless Life
by Natalie Mukuka
I am typically a recovering under-achiever because at 27 I'm really just your average degree holder not making a difference in any one's life let alone my own, a really cluttered character. But that thought that keeps coming to mind is "as a man thinketh so is he."
It is so powerful and so deep, because when I look back at all the arguments, bitterness,emptiness, purposelessness - if such a word exists - and it all lay within me: the power to leave such thoughts behind and adopt positive thoughts, a positive life, a life full of energy and meaningfulness.
Now the next step is HOW? I'm studying the Bible and really trying to adopt a reading culture in my life that's how. The key word is proactive and not reactive. Is there someone out there who has negative vibes towards me? I just give them a double dose of love.
Am I constantly broke? I try not to look at clothes and am trying to put away a few coins every month (the opportunity cost of buying clothes is having a penny for a rainy day - I should know better I'm an economist!).
It's hard but I'm hoping to see the fruits of planting a good seed.The great article on 'sunk costs' really was my first read by Dr. Simuyemba, and I've been hooked on DREAMERS GUIDE ever since. I'm looking forward to changing, I no longer look back to amend what has already gone.
