People always said I’d find my footing some day. I spent a lot of my young adult life scrambling after a bowl full of dreams. It was always like chasing a firefly – you can see it, but you can’t quite catch it. It wasn’t until well into my 20’s that things started to fall into place: I started my blog, gained career approval from my family and made a hell of a lot of new friends. It wasn’t timing. It wasn’t persistence. It was a guided acceptance of my fate. I pointed my arrow in the direction I wanted to go and let it fly.
Fate is a funny thing. You can’t create it and you can’t wait for it so you push and pull your way like saltwater taffy on a summer day. Remember to let go sometimes. It’s okay to relax and see where life takes you. It’s your arrow, after all. Point and shoot.
