I'm starting a project. I'd like your help.
I've been thinking, endlessly, for about 25 years now, about the perfect life. Is it primarily a successful, loving, supportive, and passionate relationship? Is it professional rewards: living wage, emotional fulfillment, intellectual challenge? Is it family? The right neighborhood that offers community, interests, good food? Seeing the world? Learning about other cultures? Staying in bed all day on a Tuesday? What if you have all of these things and still don't feel it? How do you even identify it?
I have no answers. I'd like to hear yours. Where have you found fulfillment? Partial or full? Routes to get there?
I would love to blame this on a tough job market, a generation of indecisive kids, a lack of creativity, but none of those are it. Please email me your ideas.
