Everybody chooses a path he or she wants to take. Some paths are shorter tracks we thought, some take a longer time. And, we have an idea in our head how it might be, during the way and in the end, at the destination.
During the way it will always be different, and also the end will be different then we thought.
One important thing is that one has to understand and pursue one's own path, and not chasing after the dreams of others. Do, what is right for you, no one else walks in your shoes. Keep moving forward, no matter what the surrounding tells you to do.
Live a life you are proud of. Be aware of the track, the path you are walking. Also during the walk, look around, enjoy, see what is happening, see what you are making happening by being there, on that moment, on that path.
By doing so every day is a new path, and the path to take.
