I had coffee with my 18-year old cousin today, and it was so nice to catch up with her and find out about her plans for college. I realized that she has so many experiences still ahead of her and I couldn’t help but express my excitement for her. She has a whole world in front of her, just waiting for her to make of it what she will.
And then I realized that I, too have a whole world in front of me. At any given moment, we all have our entire lives in front of us. Whether it’s a few more months or 80 more years, we still have time to make the most of the rest of our lives. At any given moment, there are hundreds of choices we could make to help forge our own path.
Choices that could change our day a little for the better. Choices that could alter the entire direction of our life.
Sometimes we feel stuck and only see a singular path for ourselves. It takes some introspection, but soon you’ll realize that what you are doing at this very moment doesn’t have to be what you are doing a year from now. Look at all the choices available to you right here, right now.
Here’s a hint: there are more than you think.
