“When we no longer know which way to go, we have begun our real journey.” - Wendell Berry
We all fixate on the end result, the destination. We crave the validation that we have arrived; that we are where we want to be. However, we feel lost when our ambition is met with unclear paths, propelling us to hold on too tightly to everything or feel defeated and not hold on to anything at all. We will find that our journey will flourish somewhere in the middle. When we remain true to what we love but open to the manner in which our desires manifest themselves. In that moment, when we settle into the present and humbly relinquish our plans, we will find our next path.
Do you feel that you do not know how to get where you want to be? Remove the blinders that keep you focusing solely on the destination and find the journey that comes from being lost but remaining open.
