“If you’re feeling frightened about what comes next, don’t be. Embrace the uncertainty.” -Everwood
This is a video of your life thus far and as you look at your life, it begins to feel foreign.
It doesn’t look like anything you thought it would be. It isn’t the cookie-cutter image you used saw on television growing up.Yet somehow, it is perfect that way. It’s not the life you thought you had wanted, it may not even be the life you want right now.
But it is your life and that means everything.
We all strive for something. We all imagine our life happening a certain way and we all have a plan to get us there.Yet, no matter how much we plan, no matter how much we think we can prepare and work for it — life doesn’t always go exactly as we want.
Because it goes better than what we imagined for ourselves.
Life takes you through obstacles, down slides, up mountains, through the waters, and when you think you’ve had enough it throws you another curve ball and that’s it! You hit the home run! You have not only learned how to adapt to change, but you have learned how to accept things that are out of your control.
So, put your keys in the car and drive to the destination of your dreams. Just leave room for detours along the way, because sometimes taking the scenic route makes the drive more beautiful.
