"If the path before you is clear, you're probably on someone else's path." - Joseph Campbell
I love this quote so much. We're not supposed to having it all figured out. We're not supposed to know what our life will look like in ten years. We're supposed to take one step at a time and have a clear vision of which direction we want to take but not seeing the whole path.
This prayer that I used to recite as a child brings the same message: Guide me on my way Lord, I need not know the path, just give me light enough to see the next step.
In this day and age we always try to control and plan everything, never seeming to learn that we really can't. Looking back at your life ten years ago - did you honestly think you would be where you are today? Has everything gone according to Your plan? Probably not. Life works in mysterious ways as they say. We don't always get what we want but we always get what we need. I truly believe that. You decide for yourself if it rings true to you.
So let go a little, relax into your life. Ask for guidance and take the next step. Have a vision for your future but surrender control. Trust.
With all my love,
