Once upon a time, there was a woman searching for quotes about life while working at a job she despised. She chose the path of working for someone else over her own dream because she thought it was sensible and secure. She was taught to play it safe and follow the infamous crowd.
Once upon a time, this woman realized she was desperately unhappy and "Misery" was her middle name. Dark thoughts came upon her and the light of hope was no longer in her sight.
Once upon a time, this woman read a certain book, and it changed her life. She pursued her childhood dream. She quit the job she hated and began to earn money from her passion.
Once upon a time, this woman listened to the little child-like voice inside herself that whispered, "You Are Enough".
Once upon a time, this woman smiled every day and lived happily ever after.
"For You Can Render to Humanity No Greater Service Than to Make the Most of Yourself."
The above story was written while the writer was searching for certain quotes about life in order to lead her on a new path. The writer's life was on a downhill spiral and she was desperately searching for inspirational words to enlighten her and become her metaphorical "knight in shinning armor" riding on the mythical white horse.
We are not waiting for someone else to tell us the meaning of our lives. We must indeed establish, define, and announce what we say our purpose is and, in turn, what our dreams truly are.
"Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death"
~ Patrick Henry
What are most of us saying now in these more modern times? I think it goes something like this, "Give me a steady paycheck and I will forget about my dream and bury it in the massive graveyard of lost dreams."
What is the price of freedom to you? For me, it is everything I yearn for. It is the freedom to choose the way I earn a living. It is not being forced to work for those who control the mega-corporations and in turn help them in making more money.
I would rather work for myself in a field of my choosing and struggle, if need be, for a while, than have the "security" of a steady paycheck. The paycheck means nothing if I am not Free.
Patrick Henry was not speaking of his job at the time but of his freedom to live the way he wanted...free from the control of another. We can all relate! How much would you "pay" for freedom? It is a question we all must think about."
