Life can change on a dime.
You’re going on one path with a plan. You’re doing everything you are supposed to be doing. You are making steps towards your dreams and goals.
And suddenly life changes. You were one person before and you are never the same person again.
We spend all our time measuring and accumulating in an effort for predicting what will happen next.
And that’s the point: you never really know what is going to happen.
We spend a significant amount of time trying to get our ducks in a row, making a future safer that we have no control over to begin with. Instead, we should be spending more time focusing on what we now have and enjoy it while it lasts. You never know when it will be gone. (We miss what we have lost.)
