What If There Is More to Life than What You're Living?
You've felt it--the underlying anxiety that you're missing out on the good life. So you zone out, swipe up, slim down, work hard, and spin in circles trying to get it.
Anjuli Paschall calls it carpe diem syndrome--the fear of not living life to the fullest.
But the full life isn't found by chasing it. It's found by coming awake to it.
As she puts it: "I want to be awake. I don't want to nervously navigate my life one to-do list, email, and espresso shot at a time. When my life comes to a slow halt, I want to know I savored the small moments and watched the sky change color. I want to know I didn't rush through life but received it. I want to know I came to peace with my weaknesses, loved people fearlessly, and walked with God faithfully. I hope I gave in to the audacious belief that I was loved and, miraculously, even liked."
And now, Anjuli casts a compelling vision for you to live a soul-awake life too.
The invitation might be as gentle as a song--or as abrupt as a rooster's crow--but God is always waking you up. You can have the life you really want, and you don't have to lose your soul trying to get it.
Breathe in. Breathe out. Full life is right here.
