Devote Yourself to creating something that gives you purpose . . .

"So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they're busy doing things they think are important. This is because they're chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning."

Time Magazine Reports: The Unfinished Revolution

Today is October 19, 2009, and I'm reading a Time Magazine article that was mailed to me by my moter-in-law with a published on October 26, 2009.  Now I'm confused by the dates and how something could travel through snail mail and arrive in my mailbox 7 days before it was published, but what I'm not confused by is the message.  In "The Unfinished Revolution" written by Maria Shriver, she says:  "My mother raised me to believe women had a unique power to change the language, tempo and character of the world . . ." 

The article goes on to say that more and more women say if they could they would like to leave companies that are unresponsive and start their own businesses.  We've met many of those women right here in West Michigan where the unemployment rate has created not only the preference, but the need.  Maria quotes statistics from 2003 which indicates that 35% of all self-employed people are women . . . today's statistic is more like 41% of all new business startups are created by women.  

I've attached a link to Maria's article in case you would like to read about the progressive thinking of her monther Eunice Kennedy.  The Unfinished Revolution
