You know what I find so difficult? Following my own path. I love the quote, but it sounds a lot easier than it in fact is if you ask me. I keep being distracted by the paths of others, I keep comparing those paths to my own. Not fair, I know.
I thought it would help to envision my future, and that my path would form itself once I had a destination. Unfortunately I had a couple of setbacks, the reason why I took a blog break a while ago, and my destination seems farther away from me now than I could ever imagine.
And my path, I want take giant leaps and skip steps while I run over it, instead of walking it my own pace. Funny how that works, the bigger steps I take the more bumps and holes appear.
I try to accept though, that bumps and holes are a part of life and that sometimes you just have to explore one to prepare yourself best for the ones yet to come. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger right?
I'm not sure where I'm going with this, I just felt like writing some thoughts down. I know there are far worse things in life than what I'm going through at the moment, and that helps me seeing things in perspective.
Hopefully I haven't scared you with my sudden seriousness, I know the focus on my blog usually goes to visuals instead of words, but sometimes I have to remind myself that I don't have to do what everyone else is doing...
