Once there is a goal on the horizon, one must remain strong and steadfast in order to reach it. There will come many a distraction, temptations of the superficial kind, obstacles of the very real kind, however a moment of silent reflection will soon allow the heart to be heard.

Decisions made by the heart theoretically should lead to no regrets and actual fulfillment, or so the saying goes. What if the temptation is so great that your mind is battling fiercely, and threatening to win? Afterall, we are taught to be rational beings. Think things through. Weigh up the pros and cons. Plan for the future. People that leave it to the Fates are often ridiculed. How could you do what you want without knowing where your next pay cheque is coming from? How could you follow your passion without having a back up plan? How do you motivate yourself each and everyday to be who you want to be, who you’ve always wanted to be, without a formal structure in place?
What if you took one wrong turn in the past and everything after it fell into place to land you where you were? Does it make your current position truly yours?
I’d like to think that I am the Master of my own Destiny, it’s proving rather challenging. What if I had been brave enough 10 years ago to pursue my passion instead of the material gains of the road mostly traveled by fresh graduates?
The reassurance lies in the fact that my generation will change careers at least 3 times during their lifetimes.
I’m choosing now to be my moment. fork-in-the-road1
