It’s very difficult to draw a straight line on a piece of paper without a ruler. It’s hard to walk a straight line when none exists below your feet.
Life never gives us any rulers. Nor does it leave us with the last chapter of our dream already written. One of the hardest lessons to learn is that life never affords us the opportunity to achieve exactly what we set out to do. Never.
What life does give us is the opportunity to get closer to what we thought we wanted to achieve. Sometimes more directly than others. That is why enjoying the journey along the way is so important.
For we never quite know where we will end up. Adjusting along the way is simply the path to our next beginning.
