I mean this in the non-Britney Spears way.
You have to say: Here’s what I want in my life. Here’s where I think I’m going. Here’s what I’m willing to do. Here’s what I know I won’t sacrifice, and here’s what I’m not sure about.
Then, you do what you can do, when you can do it, where you can do it.
Then, the rest is up to opportunities, choices, and, well…surprises.
So, I’m open.
I’m working hard, trying to appreciate life now, and trying to incorporate what I love here and now, while keeping in mind what I believe my goal is.
But I know the tricky, wry thing that is life well enough by now to know this: unexpected twists and turns are to be expected.
I have goals. I have gray area. I have obstacles. I have ambition, hope, gratitude, and passion. My ultimate goal, no matter what form, is wholeness and fulfillment.
And the rest, I will discover as it goes.
