Life is our own personal journey to navigate and live out. We can do with it what we want; travel to the corners of the world, learn to speak different languages or even bring new life into it. When we are old enough to make our own decisions, we start at the beginning of our own personal maze. We are the ones that choose the final destination and the stops we make along the way. There is no set ending that we have to reach in our life maze. It is all up to us. While some paths we choose might lead us to obstacles, there is always a way to get yourself back to where you want to be. In all honesty, those stray paths that you stumble onto are what make you who you are. It’s what makes you unique and whom you are meant to grow into and learn to be.
In my own experience with my personal maze, I’ve only recently put all these pieces together to make sense of it all. No matter how far off my course I’ve ended up, I’ve always been able to make my way back to where I want to be. This is possible through my faith. God didn’t only give me one opportunity to find my way back again, but several and often the choices and opportunities lay right in front of me. I also had many outlets to recharge myself, give myself a boost of motivation. While quicksand got me stuck for quite a while, whether it was due to severe heartbreak or a large setback in school, I had outlets to guide me home again. People to talk to either going through the same thing or an open ear or sharing heart to understand and help in some way.
No matter where you want to go in life, no matter what you want to do with your life, if you set it in your mind to accomplish it, you can. Anything is possible once you set your mind to it. Whether it’s money, a strong, loving family of your own, or traveling around the world, go for it. As they say, “life is short,” so take every opportunity and moment to do whatever you want to. Go wherever and say whatever you want. Just make sure you do it!
“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching, Love like you’ll never be hurt, Sing like there’s nobody listening, And live like it’s heaven on earth.” ― William W. Purkey
