“We must be willing to let go of the life we planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.” – Joseph Campbell
I grew up believing that we have a path to follow. That this path is not necessarily leading us to where we want to be, but takes us through emotions and situations we chose to study deeper, which would make us spiritually stronger.
Sometimes, path and destination get all mixed up! I think this happens when our intellect comes in and starts planning too much.
I thought the quote above would truly represent what is happening in my life now and I wanted to share it.
So, writing your own life story does not necessarily takes you straight from point A to B, we got to live the little nuances life presents to us so we can get to where we want with a full baggage.
Enjoy your day and pack your bags with the good stuff!
What if I had done things differently?
What if I had chosen a different profession?
What if I had got out of the bus before my stop?
Our lives are filled with wonder, if we had done things on a different way.
This has such a heavy weight on our souls.
It is packed with guilt, regret, sorrow, grief.
There is no room for growth based on things that you have no control of. These are not facts that were part of your life, they ARE NOT REAL!
I can’t be living, thinking what my life would be IF…
So, I decided, from now on, my big question will be done on future form.
From now on, all the “what ifs” in my life, will be filled with opportunities!
What if I choose to go back to school?
What if I decide to go around the world with my family?
What if I do this or that…
I chose to illustrate this post with a few pictures taken from a very close perspective, just because, sometimes, the opportunities we are waiting for are right bellow our nose.
What if I look close to me…
