What is the spark that starts the fire? How do you mobilize a group of people? How do you create societal change? How do you make a real difference? How do you ensure that your life is lived to the fullest? How do you balance your own desires and needs with the dire needs of so many people in the world?
These are the questions I am struggling with right now. I am trying to discern what my purpose is; trying to decide what I want to do with the next year or so of my life; trying to figure out what I want to do this summer during my break between this adventure and the next. More immediately, I am struggling to decide how much money I can spend on a date when there are so many people that could never afford to eat out and so many people that are hungry.
I am not writing this to vent about my own personal struggles (although it helps for that too), but because I think these are questions and struggles that we all have. And I hope that we can form some answers together that will be better for everyone (in the comments section, over the course of the next several months on the blog, or other ways).
I was going to offer some of the answers that I have been thinking about. But then I realized that I didn't like my answers right now well enough to share them. What about you? Have you come up with answers or insights to these questions?
