I’m in a period of transition in my life. That’s the nice way of saying that I have no fucking clue what is going on. All I know is that some of my friends have big dreams of becoming a CEO someday and I’m trying to decide whether a peanut butter and jelly sandwich is still an acceptable lunch option (conclusion – it is).
Which begs the question – no, not about the peanut butter – does anyone know what they’re doing? Or are we all just flailing around like a bunch of baby birds who fell out of the nest?
I take that back. There must be people out there that know what they’re doing, right? I mean, what about all those “experts” on the Discovery Channel and those long-winded TED talks by “thought leaders”. Surely they have all their ducks in a row.
So let’s ask them.
Hear ye, hear ye! People who know what they are doing – can you let us in on the secret? What do you guys do to find purpose, to feel like you’re on the right path? I’m literally anxious to know.
Do I need to take a magic pill to rid myself of my doubts?
Do I have to go see a witch in a creepy cabin in the woods?
Does the name of the pill happen to start with ‘Xan” and end with an “ax”?
Speaking of axes, where can I get one of those? I’d like to chop down the self-doubts that grow in my mind like weeds until they are nothing but fertilizer for flowers to flourish.
So please, people who appear so put together – talk to us. Teach us. Help us poor, lost souls find our way in this confusing world. The universe knows we need it.
