"...a pattern that others made may prevail in the world and following the wrong god home, we may miss our star." william stafford
it's so natural to want the guidance of those you love and admire. but sometimes you just need to wander, to not follow other's suggestions, to forge out on your own. i read this quote in a book recently and it was a direct hit for me. we do ourselves a disservice by focusing on what others might think of our leaps of faith. by buying into what others perceive as success and failure and not following our own internal compass. sometimes we can't even hear our inner voice tell us what to do next because the voices of others are so loud in our heads. life is too short to wish on someone else's star. follow your own star. this is your adventure.
