i was starting to worry that i had forgotten my dreams, but maybe i’ve just outgrown them.
maybe this is what david meant by making the late-20′s transition. “you thought you knew what you wanted but now you want something completely different.”
i’m learning that i can’t control everything, that some things are beyond even my wildest imagination, that so many surprises are along the way.
maybe it’s not that i haven’t accomplished my goals but that i’m making new ones, and the big question isn’t “What am I going to do with my life?” but “What am I going to do with today?”
i can prepare for the future, i can imagine what i’ll be doing in 5, 10, 20 years, i can hope to God that i’ll be ready, but first i better be ready for right now.
the things i’m doing right now matter, whether it’s as big as spending a lot of my spare time on a project that thrills me or as small as smiling at the person standing at the corner. everything counts.
