Not A Hippie

I've been struggling a lot lately with what I want to do with my life. I got my fancy degree, started a business, and yet I knew it didn't really matter. I still didn't feel fulfilled. (It is at this point that I would like to interject that I am not a hippie so don't be scared if you aren't either.) If I made a ton of money, would I feel better? What would I do with the money? Am I happy yet? Is happiness a goal?

Bleh. These and bajillions of other questions were constantly running on a loop in my head. Then I happened upon this book by Eckhart Tolle. In it, he says the things we all know to be true. Money doesn't matter and neither do things. If you are constantly seeking things, you'll never find happiness. For some reason, the way he writes and the examples he gives are totally speaking to me. I can feel my life changing while I'm becoming more conscious. If this is something you think you might be into, I highly recommend it.

I read this & LOVED IT!!

I met with Carla's exhubby today, Doug, and I think he mentioned your name but I didn't know your last name - and of course am so used to seeing your twitter username (he should have said that - haha). Anyway, let me know if you'd ever like to chat about business or spiritual stuffs! :)
