50 Questions That Will Free Your Mind: #7
One of the tasks on my 101 in 1,001 list is to answer the 50 Questions That Will Free Your Mind. In this series, I answer the questions about myself. I would love to hear your answers to the questions as well, so please post your answers in the comments!
Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing?
What a tough question. It could relate to just about anything in a person’s life (relationships, career, family, health, etc.). I really strive to live my life based on my beliefs. After all, this is mostly what I write about on my blog. I have also made several decisions throughout my life that were pretty unpopular with a lot of people, but I made them anyway because I felt it was in my (our) best interest. That being said, there are lots of reasons why I think people (myself included) often settle for what they are doing. One big reason I can think of is what other people think/say about these choices. I know ultimately things like that really shouldn’t affect the decisions you make for yourself, your children, or your family, especially if it is something you strongly believe in, but it is so hard to go against the grain when it’s something that isn’t very popular. I am slowly (but surely) working on worrying less about what other people think, but that all comes with time!
