When someone asks you about your true calling in life, how would you respond? I guess everyone does what they do because they find meaning in it. Significance, purpose and value are the driving forces behind one’s interpretation of personal meaning. If I don’t have a sense of meaning I would not even consider getting up from my bed every morning. Some may find meaning in chopping trees to feed their children, while others find meaning in planting trees to save the planet. Sometimes I am aware and sometimes I simply don’t care. I think, in this “true calling” that we are taking about, there is a caller and the one that is being called. I become the caller to experience the calling. I may call it true coz I found meaning in it.
In the name of spreading motivation and inspiration people tend to readily accept things they find solace in. Meanwhile, they often miss the truth behind. I came across this picture. Is s/he happy, content and thus rich? I don’t think so. Don’t judge a book by its cover. Likewise, don’t get fooled by one clicked moment in the front; behind the journey is arduous, each day and everyday. Think about it, however much I wish from the bottom of my heart, deep down I know the baby may not gonna smile all day long. Even if s/he does, lets not deceive ourselves. Life can be unfair and treacherous beyond our imagination.
