I want a life that is my own and that is a full expression of who I am.
If I’m not constantly shining the spotlight on my desires, the desires of others with get the spotlight, leaving mine to wither in the dark.
I must be like a traveler, constantly referring to his map and compass. There is a danger of spending too much time trekking, then looking up only to realize I’ve lost my path. This is because I’m easily pulled and swayed by others and my environment.
A storm may cause you to take a different road without even considering the consequences.
This also means I must first draw my map and make sure my compass knows where north is.
