"Life Is Not a Problem to Be Solved, But a Mystery to Be Lived": Can You Dig It?

This quote from poet Nietzsche is quite profound, if you think about it. While written years ago, it’s timeless. To me, it says that when we make achievement and success the be-all-and-end-all of life, we miss the joy that comes from knowing that life is truly a mystery. 

Haven’t you noticed that the most meaningful times occur not when your goal is achieved, but when something unexpected happens? We spot our soul mate across the room. We find a personal message hidden in a billboard. We land the perfect career by accident. There’s a lot more going on than meets the eye. Ignore it. Or embrace the mystery, and have a heck of a lot more fun. Here’s how to begin:

  • Admit that you don’t know – daily.
  • Choose to seek the truth.
  • Trust your heart.

OK, mama. It’s up to you.
