I confess that I was a closeted life-voyeur.
Seeking gratification from reading people’s life adventures from the stories that they posted on their blog.
Preferred to stay at the sidelines and observe.
Gaining a sense of what the world is through someone’s eyes.
Not pausing to think for awhile what does it mean if I were the one in the thick of the action.
Not stopping to think that perhaps, I could create experiences too in my life.
Perhaps, other priorities have taken over; such as career aspirations, or perhaps, the need to take care your families – an elderly parent, a school-going child or the less fortunate family member that pushes our own plans further and further away.
If we are able to fulfill our obligations and be free to pursue our own inner calling, what would it be?
When the call comes knocking, do we hear it?
When we hear it, do we answer it?
Will we have the fearlessness to leave what is familiar and secure? Will we finally set out on a venture of the heart that will change us to our very roots?
