Message in a Bottle

Do you ever feel like you are stranded on island in the middle of the ocean? I must say that I do some days.  I don’t know how or why, but for some reason, I can feel very alone. That nobody understands me.

It’s pretty crazy I know. I mean, I have a loving family, a good job, and good health.  I can do pretty much whatever I want. It’s funny, though, I find that I am doing things that I really do not want to do. There is a major problem here.

Do you feel that way? Are you struggling with working in a job that does not fulfill you? Maybe it did, but somehow you have changed. How bout when you try to make a change, things just seem not happen? Like you are on a one way trip to NOWHERE.

All I can say is that I feel you. That is exactly where I am. I mean, I feel like I can see a way out but nothing is happening. Reminds me of one of my favorite songs by the Police:

Just a cast away an island lost at sea-o

Another lonely day, no one here but me-o

More loneliness than any man could bear

Rescue me before I fall into despair-o

I hope that someone gets my

message in a bottle yeah

Message in a bottle yeah

A year has passed since I wrote my note

But I should have known this right from the start

Only hope can keep me together

Love can mend your life but love can break your heart

I’ll send an S.O.S. to the world

Walked out this morning I don’t believe what I saw

A hundred billion bottles washed up on the shore

Seems I’m not alone in being alone

A hundred billion castaways looking for a home

This really hits home. It reminds us to always be searching, no matter how we feel, because there is someone out there, who feels the same way, and is looking for someone they can connect with and relate. It is very important to remember that last part, a hundred billion castaways looking for a home. There is community even in feeling alone. Kinda amazing isn’t it?

So, if you are looking for a way to change your financial circumstances, and you just don’t know where to start. Reach out, I may have just the message for which you have been searching.
