Trust the Experience.
My brother and I were talking last night about how life unfolds in funny, surprising ways and how each experience has led us to exactly where we are now. Just a reminder that you are exactly where you are supposed to be.
One of my favorite excerpts:
"Gather experiences. The purpose of the journey is not to guard and restrain yourself. The purpose is to learn. You do not teach and lead your soul. Your soul leads and teaches you... It takes you down winding, narrow roads and along fast-moving, highways. It takes you into tiny cafes, bustling cities, and out-of-the-way hostels where people break bread and tell what they have learned.
Let yourself have all your experiences. Don't limit or judge yourself on the adventures you have had. All were necessary, all were important, all have helped shape and form you. Your heart will lead you, guide you where you are to go. Don't worry about getting lost or off track. Don't worry about being wrong, or in the wrong places at the wrong time. Listen while others tell their stories, their adventures, and show you the truths they have learned. Open your heart and joyfully share what has happened to you along the way." - Journey to the Heart, Melody Beattie
Be grateful for each experience.
