I think it is fair to say we are all in constant need of a direction. Whether it is towards or away from someone; choosing one job or the other, finding a home here or there, settling for what you are or what you could be; each and every one of these decisions mandates some sort of direction on your part. How do we choose which way to go? How will we know which is the best route?
I was trying to figure out which countries to visit (currently planning a backpacking trip for this summer) and as I pin pointed different locales on this map (imaginary arrow points below) it occured to me that I could really use a map like this one, in all aspects of my life.
(by the way this is a really greaaat map)
Wouldn't it be lovely if there was some sort of guarantee in life, the way there is in traveling, that if you start here, hop a plane and end there, that you will be blissfully happy?! Well ideally that would be great, to know the outcome of all actions made on your part. However, I often forget that, even in traveling, its often the journey and NOT the destination that accounts for a great trip. Looking back, I must admit that even with all the turbulence, all the bumps in the road, all the delays and set backs, it has still managed to be a great journey.
So, as they say, we should all just sit back and enjoy the ride :)
On the other hand, I really do like hearing about other people in their 20's and how they are fairing this "trip" we are on. It sure does seem to be difficult at times, not really knowing where we all fit in and how we are suppose to find a spot for ourselves in this great, big world. To ease my worries I have found that this site has done wonders. Please head here and check it out!
