Is it ok to have no idea about what you want to be when you grow up? I think so. If you still don’t know what you want to do, then you haven’t grown up, and by that I mean you are still in the delightful child of your life stage. Relish and enjoy, don’t worry that the bright city lights haven’t called you yet. Perhaps meandering through the countryside is more your thing? It is more about the journey than the destination.
I love travelling and am often disappointed when I arrive. On the way its all new and colourful, with strange sites to behold, when you get there the marvelling ceases. At least for me. Perhaps the point is to decide that the destination is just a way point, a marker for you to catch your breath, before you regroup, fill up your tank and head off again? Or perhaps the destination never materialises and the journey is all that there is. If that’s the case, lets hope you like travelling. Does it matter if the journey is long or short or goes by some other unexpected route. If it does, why? What were you expecting? A ribbon across the finishing line and a medal for doing well. A marker maybe, that says ‘it’s here’, x marks the spot, one has arrived.
I will know when I have arrived, there will be pearly gates and a bloke with a date stamp. He will stamp my hand so that I know that this is it, I am dead.
So whilst I am travelling in whatever direction and for whatever purpose, I know I am alive. All that I must do now is to stop worrying that I am heading in the wrong direction. Because if the destination is death or a rebirth or an afterlife of some kind, then the journey is just life.
Here’s to the journey, the discoveries, the good, the bad, the beautiful and ugly, here’s to life.
