You have to start somewhere, so you may as well start from here. But sometimes, when you get going, you discover it isn’t the path you had planned out in your head. Instead of self-correcting and changing course, we keep traveling down a road we know we don’t want to go. What keeps us going down that road? Pride? Determination that we will somehow miraculously find the path we created in our minds? Who knows!
Recognize that you are the driver to your final (well, nothing is ever final except death and taxes) destination and if you want it to be everything you want it to be, then changing course might be exactly what you need to find that fulfillment.
