Sometimes it may seem like our life’s not headed where we want it to. We want things to go right but things just keep going in another direction. “Where is my life headed,” we then ask. But we might actually be asking the wrong question. Maybe it would be better to ask, “Where am I taking my life?”
The latter question actually suggests that we can take control of our life. Sometimes we tend to trust our lives to fate, living life and just going with the flow. Some of us may live life in the way that society dictates us how to, not realizing that we do have the power to choose and plan where we want to take our life.
Life is short, so they say, so it might be worth our while if we live it in such a way that makes us see and experience the beauty of its complexity and its simplicity, explore its challenges and opportunities.
We can’t simply model our life on someone else’s life or on what others expect our life to be, but we can use it as an inspiration and do something better or different.
We have the power to make our own destiny, we have the power to determine what we want to do with our life. We have the strength to say, “This is my life and this is how I want to live it.”
