Fulfilment and Co.

"Too often, we decide to follow a path that is not really our own, one that others have set for us. We forget that whichever way we go, the price is the same: in both cases, we will pass through both difficult and happy moments. But when we are living our dream, the difficulties we encounter make sense."
- Paulo Coelho
I just found out that most people feel as though they are living someone else’s life. I really thought that only a few of us crazies have the time and wanton imagination to really question where we are in life, but apparently, most people feel this way. We can now stop evil-eyeing those seemingly perfect people who “have their act together”.
It’s pretty daunting to wander aimlessly through life’s train station and wonder which train to jump on; which direction to take without anyone telling you where it’s going to end up. A guarantee that it will go to Hogwarts would be nice, but chances are many are headed straight toward Little Whinging with Uncle Vernon at the door step.
In A Maiden’s Legacy, Anjeli has forgotten what it’s like to do anything with passion. She wants to go back to being a hero but feels as though her path has always been set for her. Anger, dissatisfaction and boredom have become her dreaded companions. She finds it difficult to concentrate on anything; she feels she has lost herself.
“...finding fulfilment comes from four main areas: discovering your values, finding your purpose, connecting to your passions and playing to your natural strengths.”—(

So now comes the final part of Anjeli’s journey—the last book of The Scarlet Omen trilogy. She has to start taking things into her own hands and fight for what she believes in despite the stupid prophecy that has changed her life completely.

The problem with life is that you can’t always just psych yourself up to be happy and fulfilled because someone or something will always step up and say, “Hell to the no!” So what do we do? How do we stay ourselves and be who we want to be with all the outside influences striving to put us down at every turn?

I seriously don’t know and am trying to find out as well. Maybe Anjeli will figure it out for me and save me the trouble! I’ll let you know.
