The only one we should compare ourselves with is who we were yesterday.
Though the sequence of my life is not a rehearsed performance, I’m bent on making every step, even the spontaneous responsible and not just error trying, lest I run out of chances.
A lot of things are out of our control. Like what number comes up on the dice. But if you’re lucky, you get to choose where you go.
We like to set goals because they give us a feel of control- But control is an illusion, because sometimes the earth moves and we have to deal with wherever we end up. Whether it’s on solid ground or not.
You know what they say about the best laid plans? “What a disaster!”
Sometimes to chase after your future, you have to stop running and plant yourself in one place: take a stand and figure out what you really want, and know that even after the darkest nights, the dawn will come and you’ll find a place where you don’t have to hide; a place to call home.
