The Path

Our PathSo much admiration goes out to the 3 year old that says with certainty, “I am going to be a doctor.” Then spends the following however many years studying and training to do just that. I used to be envious of this confidence and understanding of life purpose. Now-a-days I subscribe to a different belief (which comforts the person in me who has always lacked conviction).

QuoteLaoTzuI believe that the path is the point. It’s not the end goal, but instead, every moment, every choice and the emotions that are happening right now.

This isn’t to say that goals aren’t good to have, or that our history didn’t help shape the person we are today. This just means that this very moment right now, is who you are and what life is all about. The person you were, and the person you’ll be, do not exist. The only person in existence right NOW is you. The you who is reading my blog. By the way, thank you for reading my blog, it means a lot to me!

If we can practice living in the moment, then we’ll learn that we always have choices. If you suddenly have the desire to go for a walk, draw, sing, dance, swim, hike, run, cook, bike, or whatever tickles your fancy, what’s stopping you? I know we have obligations, but lets not forget the responsibility we have for ourselves, our sanity and our peace of mind. Take a moment to do one thing, right now, which makes you truly happy! Be in that moment, enjoy it.
