Why We Never Have It All Together

I don’t know if it’s because I’m a guy or because of my Asian culture, but I’ve realized recently that I am afraid of being vulnerable. I am pretty private about what’s in my heart. I keep my dreams and passions well guarded because of my fear of getting hurt. I’m afraid that I’m going to try to show the world about what’s deep in my heart and end up getting laughed at while everyone watches me as I fall flat on my face (which has happened). What it pretty much comes down to is that I’ve learned that I’m a broken person full of fear. I’ve been hurt many times in my past, whether it is the pain of feeling unacknowledged, unappreciated or unloved.

Here’s what I found out though. We are all a little broken. Anyone who tells you that they’ve got their life together is either lying or is in for a very rude awakening. With that said, I’ve decided to commit to a life where my story and my passions are being openly shared for all to see, question, and discuss. I know the internet can be pretty mean, but I know there are others out there who are just as afraid as I am to take the steps in trying to figure out what it means to live a more full life. I want this blog to be a blog written by a broken person for broken people. This is an invitation for anyone who is interested in joining us to try and discover the answers to life’s tough questions and learning to live a life full of meaning.

So here is my big dream in a nutshell: I want to live a life that so fully lived that when I’m on my deathbed, I can look over to my wife and say “Thank you so much for joining me on this crazy and amazing adventure. I wouldn’t have traded it for the world. See you soon!”.

What’s yours?
