["I think we'd like life to be a train... You get on, pick your destination and get off. But it's actually more like a sailboat. Every day, you have to see where the wind is and check the currents and see if there's anybody else on the boat with you who can help out. It's a sailboat ride -- the weather changes and the currents change and the wind changes. It's not a train ride." - Barbara Brown Taylor]

Sometimes we think we have it all figured out, and we just have to "get off at a specific spot" and our purpose will be fulfilled. We sometimes believe that there's one clear cut way of doing things. But life is full of wonder and various "currents" and variables that affect us and our overall journey.

I want to encourage you to not be afraid to ask for help and guidance when you need it. And to be in the "now" as much as possible, because the now is what we KNOW we have for sure. Set sail and follow your passions. Grow when the wind comes. Learn when the currents change. Embrace the journey.

Today and always, be blessed. :)
