What does it mean to live a full life?
Here at Rent Sons, one thing we’re focused on is understanding what it means to live a full life.
Society tells young people that a full life means collecting experiences, achievements, and possessions.
But is it?
I remember what it was like to chase that kind of life. Before I started Rent Sons, I ran a water special effects company called AQUA. I brought some of the coolest water and light features to shows for top performers like Tiesto, the Chainsmokers, Phish, and Ricky Martin. I was traveling the world, making some money, and basically living the “high life.”
But something was missing and my business partner knew it too. So we walked away from it all.
The message society tells young people about what makes a good life is deceptive, just to be frank. We’re seeing high depression rates, increasing restlessness, even suicide. Young adults are constantly comparing themselves to each other and to celebrities, believing if they can just “make it” to a level of coolness and popularity or success, they’ll have made it.
We believe a full life is one of growth, community, hard work, and unconditional (Agape) love. A full life starts with self-care; investing in our physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. It starts with courageously facing our wounds, our fears, and the lies that hold us back. When we combine self-care with true friendship, we are propelled forward to live out our purpose, the things we dream of doing when we’re not bogged down with self-doubt.
Yes, we are a business. But we’re more than that. We are a social enterprise that cares about helping young people think bigger and bolder about what it means to live well. We want young people to live a full life.
That’s why we’ve launched our journal program with a reading list.
That’s why we’re investing in helping them develop the self-awareness and interpersonal skills necessary to thrive in relationships.
That’s why we want to help them learn the value of hard work.
Western culture is going to keep enticing young people with false messages about what it means to live well. It’s essential that we intentionally help them answer this question for themselves.
