A new decade has begun.
I find myself looking ahead over the next 10 years and wondering how my life will look. We can all predict how our lives will go, of course. But life always has other plans for us, whether we enjoy that or not.
If life is a journey, I like to think it’s a journey across an ocean. You can intend to sail in a certain direction, but the wind and currents will sweep us in different directions. There’s no reason or logic to it… it’s just what naturally happens. Perhaps we will reach the destination we aim for, but not necessarily in the ‘straight shot’ we intended.
I’m 38 years old and I have been swept up in numerous currents I didn’t intend. If the last couple of years have taught me anything, it’s that there will definitely be more unseen currents on the way.
All I can do is sail true… to navigate that ocean with a clear heart, being honest with myself about what’s important to me.
All right, 2020… let’s get cracking.
