Hi. My name is Rene and I am the Repurposed Redhead.
Have you ever asked yourself: “What am I doing with my life?”. (Said full of exasperation with both hands shaking in front of oneself.)
Well, I have – many times – and the answer was always a resounding “Nothing.”. (Said in a pathetic and dejected tone with head low and shoulders slumped.)
That had to change.
I didn’t want to just float through life doing what I thought I was supposed to be doing and being who I thought I was supposed to be. I wanted to stop just existing and truly live.
I’ve had a fairly normal life thus far, nothing too out of the ordinary. In fact, my life was pretty great by most peoples standards – a good job, a nice place to live, wonderful friends and family. But, I was still left wanting. I realized that what I truly wanted, needed, and desired was quite simple: a life with purpose. Thus the Repurposed Redhead blog was born and I began my new adventure.
re•pur•pose |rē’pərpəs|verb [with obj.]: adapt for use in a different purpose. Dude, that redhead is totally repurposing her life.
red•head |ˈredˌhed|noun: a person with reddish hair. Dude, I said “That redhead is totally repurposing her life.”
I quit my job, left my house, and sold all of my stuff. I am starting anew.
This will be my epic journey, an inquisition into life itself. I will travel the world, going wherever my thoughts might take me. I will stay with strangers and leave as friends. I will help those who need help and receive help in return. I will explore new places and learn new things. I will find my purpose and I will tell you all how.
I am using this blog as a means for me to both convey and chronicle the things that give my life meaning; helping, exploring, and learning.
Helping – I will be making my way around the world volunteering for various organizations, charities, and individuals who need help in one form or another.
Exploring – I will be exploring new places, ideas, and cultures – immersing myself in the world and all of its many mysteries.
Learning – I will be learning continuously. From new jobs to new books, and from new languages to new cuisines – the world will be my teacher and I it’s pupil.
My posting schedule will be twice weekly (barring lack of internet) and all posts will fall under one of the above categories. I hope you enjoy reading about my adventures and that perhaps you’ll find some ways to add more purpose to your life too.
Thanks for reading!
