“I’ve become so hyper-aware of all the possible signs the universe is handing me that I’m not even thinking about myself. 

Maybe it’s possible that, no matter what I choose, it will be right because I will make it right. 

But we can’t look for clues in the present as though they’ve been left here by the future; there is no invisible sign pointing us in the right direction. 

All we can do is commit to being the kind of person we hope to become at the end while we’re on the way. 

I may not know where I’m headed, but the destination isn’t as important as how I deal with what I’m given when I get there.”
