Our Journey through life involves a rich variety of themes. Our lives may follow unique paths, each one of us expressing our own individuality and identity, striving to find our own meaning and purpose, setting personal goals based on our individual desires or what motivates us, in order to find the rich and fulfilling life that we yearn for.
We voice our individuality and commonality in different spheres of life – our world of thought, relationships, family, career, recreation or spirituality.
We engage in many thoughts, display diverse behaviours while expressing a multitude of emotions: loving, learning, aspiring, achieving, contemplating, talking, playing, laughing, and much more.
But there are also times that we cry, doubt, wonder, feel overwhelmed by disappointment or frustration, hurt the people we love, battle with disappointment, feelings of powerlessness, overwhelm and even despair.
We are similar and we are different
We all attach value to different things. Our lives are truly unique, but we all have experiences that touch upon similar themes - love, work, money, beliefs, relationships, identity, education and so much more. What you value, how you experience events and what you regard as important or significant are not the same for you, me or anyone else.
Whatever you think, feel and desire are valid for you, based on your individual aspirations, needs and the emphasis you place on the themes you regard as important in your life.
Our different experiences and desires lend spice to life. Through shared events or thoughts we can inspire each other, learn from one another and still maintain our individuality.
Very often our similarities are found within the questions we ask and some of the challenges we face, even though the answers we find or the solutions we implement may be quite different.
The Intention of the Life Theme Pages
A shared desire we all have is to find solutions for life's challenges and answers to our questions. There may be times when you experience your life as fulfilling, everything working out the way you imagined; there are also times when one or more area of your life is less than satisfying, perhaps somewhat frustrating, or even exceptionally challenging, resulting in the feeling that “everything sucks”.
Getting answers to questions that fit your personal needs and finding ways to overcome these obstacles is pivotal to resolve issues as well as to realise dreams and aspirations.
Getting answers to questions and finding ways to overcome obstacles is pivotal to resolve issues as well as to realise dreams and aspirations. If you are only focused on the questions, without pursuing your personal truth or solution, problems may grow to the point where they seem insurmountable and could even erode the satisfaction you get from that which is working well and that used to give you pleasure.
Thus, these pages are intended to assist you with discovering within yourself some answers to questions that may be plaguing you. They let you know you are not alone; we all face challenges and question our own wisdom from time to time. However, knowledge we do have. The trick is to unpack and uncover those pearls of wisdom and use them wisely.
