Carol’s eyes slowly fluttered open as the sun peeked through her bedroom window. She let out a deep sigh and buried her head in her pillow. Another day, another routine. She couldn’t help but wonder, “Is this all there is?
As she lay there, staring at the ceiling, she couldn’t shake off the feeling of restlessness that had been nagging her for months. She had an OK job, a passable income, a mostly loving family, and a few close friends, but something was missing.
She longed for more meaning, purpose, and excitement in her life. She wanted to find her passions, explore new places, meet new people, and make a difference in the world. But she didn’t know where to start, after all, high flying dream lives surely needed a higher salary than she would ever see.
As she got up and prepared for another day of work, she couldn’t help but feel a sense of resignation and boredom. She knew she had to pay the bills, meet the deadlines, and attend the meetings, but it all felt so meaningless and empty.
She wondered if anyone else felt the same way. She wondered if there was a way out of this hamster wheel of routine and monotony. She wondered if there was more to life. A fear of failure and judgment held her back, she should resign herself to being “Carol -wife, mother, sister, friend” and not dream “above her station”
Dropping the kids off at school, she was thinking about her sister, Sally, when the phone rang in the car. It was Sally. It was funny how often that happened, but it helped fill in the 30minute commute.
After a couple of minutes chatting, Carol said to Sally…
“Listen, I need to talk to someone about how I’ve been feeling lately. I don’t know, I just feel like something is missing in my life, you know? I have a good job, a decent income, and some amazing people in my life, but I feel like there should be more to it than just going through the motions.
I mean, what’s the point of it all? Why do we work so hard and sacrifice so much just to live a “blah” life? I know I have dreams and passions that I want to pursue, but I’m so scared of wasting time and money or worse disappointing everybody that I haven’t even tried.
I just feel so stuck and frustrated. I don’t want to settle for a life that’s just okay. I want to wake up every day feeling inspired, motivated, and happy. Is that too much to ask? I don’t know, maybe I’m being too idealistic or selfish.
But I can’t help but wonder if there’s more to life . I want to make a difference, explore new things, and be true to myself. Do you ever feel that way? Like you’re meant for something more, but you don’t know what it is or how to get there?”
By now, Carol was a little teary, and Sally could tell she was upset…
“Hey, I totally get where you’re coming from. I’ve been feeling the same way lately. It’s like we’ve been following the script of what society expects us to do – go to school, get a job, pay the bills – but we haven’t really questioned whether that’s what we really want or need.
It’s normal to have doubts, but we can’t let them hold us back from at keast trying our passions and dreams. Maybe it’s time to take a step back and ask what brings us joy and fulfillment, and what we want to leave behind.
I think it’s great that you want to make a difference and be true to yourself.
Have you heard of the Rise to Rich course? It’s a program that helps people like us to discover our purpose, clarify our goals, and create a roadmap to our ideal life. I’m thinking of getting. Maybe we can do it together and see where it takes us?”
By the time Carol reached work, she and Sally had planned to meet later that evening and go through the course and, together, map out their futures. For the first time in ages, Carol felt optimisic for the days ahead.
