grub + travels + perspectives

SoulPancake Sunday

It feels great that finally, after a few years of struggle and confusion, I can answer this question with a yes. And I am very grateful for that. In all honesty, I never had a gameplan in my life. But I cannot say that I am the impulsive, carefree type that lives by the moment. For a while, I was lost and had no idea what to do and where to go, but as the saying goes, "One step at a time."

There's no exact formula as to how we will reach that place or that state where/when we could finally say, "I'm where I want to be." In my opinion, if you want to get moving, you have to take the first step. If you don't know what you want to do, you must figure out at least if you are fine with where you are right now and/or if you like what you're doing right now with your life. Indeed, all the opportunities are out there but the responsibility of finding them is solely in our hands.

The answer to this question is different for each person, but it always boil down to moving forward. Some may say we are all headed in one direction, and that is true, so we might as well make the ride worthwhile. Right? Don't get stuck, just keep moving forward.

I've read this comment in SoulPancake's website:
We aren't supposed to know, we are living in our present, past and future in this moment. If you make the best out of now you guarantee your future will be great.
What matters is you keep on going, the future might be vague but at least at the end of the day, you don't find yourself in the exact same spot, soles digging the ground, and haven't moved an inch.

"Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. 
Tip toe if you must, but take the step."
- Gemma Stone
