A Meaningful Life…


Image

Yes, this is how I see it too today. I once thought the contrary. 

I thought I lived a meaningful life if I lived as per the conventions of my society, my family.

I thought I had to be accepted, to fit in, to find meaning.

Yes, I have always been a popular tag among my bunch and that popularity gave me “meaning”?

I however faked more than I fared. I lived parallel lives known to none but myself. Sure I sought high and higher education and of course aimed at being and staying rich. Had the cars, a beautiful home, children and a husband to grant me the highly converted status ofMRS…!

Well, one day, I couldn’t run from my own shadows no more. I hurt more than I could help my own self. Thought I could drown myself in adulterous relationships and even attempted suicide. All of these were still known to none but me.

Then it dawned on me that I alone could give meaning to my life. I got real with myself. Humbly looked and faced myself in the mirror. My modest option was to out from it all. Got no support from my “bunch” yet still did out I did.

Support did come later but I was already on my way to a FULL, HAPPY and CONTENTED LIFE. I have thus decided, to push or pull it further by sharing myself in all honesty that I may touch the lives of others.

What you say my hope to get gentle followers?

  1. I admire your courage Marie. There’s so much truth and lessons to be learnt from this post. real change starts with telling ourselves the truth..something a lot of folks are afraid of doing, because its really easy pointing the fingers at someone else and not at our own faces.. You are yet another proof that we are responsible for how well our lives turn out, and if it is gonna change, then its up to us.

    1. Thank you for stopping by. Indeed l am on a journey one with some renewed purpose, to inspire and motivate as much as l can. My soon to be released book will share so much more. Hope you will get a copy too.
      Cheers, Marie

  2. Dear Marie,

    Sorry I haven’t been around for a while. I’ve been working on my copywriting website. I had it reviewed and had to make some more changes. Sent it back to be reviewed again. 🙂

    Your story is worth sharing. It’s so inspirational. We need to hear stories like yours of how you hit rock bottom, looked for solutions in the wrong places and eventually found the answers.

    There are many women out there who need to hear this. I’m one of those women. I’ve had my share of trouble and sorrows. But thank God He gave me the strength to get through it all.

    I know that your book will do well. It will motivate those who are looking for help. And your story will change a lot of lives. I’m looking forward to reading it.

    Thanks for your openness and for sharing.

    Have a blessed day. 🙂
