To give you an idea of where I plan on going with this site, here are a few general topics I've been thinking about lately:
- Finding and following your passion: seems like a lot of people my age (including me) are having a mid-life crisis in terms of finding the right vocation/livelihood that will make them happy (or happier) — something that fits with their passion and interests.
- Buddhism and kids: how do you do it?
- Coming to terms with (and moving past) the religion you were brought up in: I know most "westerners" were most likely brought up in another religion — for me it was Roman Catholicism. Even though I haven't been a member of the church for like 15 years, I've been struggling with moving past it as I start to focus on Buddhist philosophy.
- Dealing with time, attention and competing responsibilities to focus on the relationships that mean the most to you.
I'm sure Melisa will have her own set of topics and ideas, but that's where I intend to take my journey.
