Sometimes it is so difficult for me to remember the above saying. With friends and family in so many different stages and directions of their lives, it can become so easy to question my choices and path. Am I supposed to be living my life the way that my mother did? My best friend just got married and bought a house, is this the life I'm meant to have also? Another friend just started her own business while someone else I know got promoted in their corporate job. Is that supposed to be me?
But questioning your place in life against the road of others really doesn't get you any where. Everyone is different, that much I've learned. And the path - the direction for one's life - is not that linear. Everyone has to trust their own heart, let it guide him, and move to the beat and rhythm of their own life.
But every now and then - "sometimes I have to remind myself that I don't have to do what everyone else is doing."
