The truth is that most of us live life half-hearted. Thoreau’s famous words are stark, but true:
Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them.
We have dreams, but we don’t turn them into goals. Some of us stopped actively pursuing learning when we got out of school. Many of us are not comfortable with our emotions, and thus live with broken, incomplete self-awareness. For many of us, God is a part of our lives, but mostly as an abstract idea or a vague sense of security, rather than a vibrant relationship.
The result is that for many of us our options feel limited, and our impact in the world is reactive rather than creative. This is not what you were made for. The ache inside your heart for something more shows that even you know this deep inside.
