Enjoying the imperfect path
"I don't think the right question is, 'is the path perfect?'It's probably, 'Is this somewhere I'd like to go?'"Seth Godin
I don't know about you, but when it comes to work I can't see very far down the path I'm on.
My steps aren't well marked. My plans aren't sure. I improvise more than I'd like.
If I think about the ditches on either side of this road, well, hmmmm. Let's just say I'd rather not look there.
If you're like me, uncertainty makes me uncomfortable. I like plans. I enjoy control. Order is a good thing.
And yet, adventures always come with imperfect paths and unanswered questions. This is, after all, why we all choose new paths, right?
And so, this week, I have PRE-decided to walkdance toward the messy, challenging, uncharted, ridiculous paths this life holds. I have PRE-decided to be enthusiastic, teachable, kind. I want to remember that the quality of the path doesn't matter, just the worthiness of the destination.
Won't you join me?
