Quote of the day:
The writer operates at a peculiar crossroads where time and place and eternity somehow meet. His problem is to find that location. -Flannery O'Connor
You have arrived at a crossroad and must now choose what direction to take. What will you do?
The build up to this important moment does not matter, the effort and sacrifices made so far takes a back seat, the acquaintances made along the way have no effect on how your final decision plays out, because that is life. We can learn from experiences and events that helped us along the way. After all is said and done, we are left alone with our thoughts being the only thing to keep us company. Our fears are our fears, our desires are our desires, and so on.
But what is fear if not an emotional response to things real and unreal, and what is desire if not a fire that can be extinguished at will. The whole universe is alive with your ideas and the stars delight in gazing down on you. But we cease to exist when we stop living for a purpose.
Evolve or perish. Grow or remain as you are.
We never seem to run out of crossroads and of diverging paths. The point is not to linger to long, but to be decisive, to take inspiration from the journeys through life, and not to be afraid to fail, and to reveal our shortcomings.
My plans for the week remain unchanged from the previous week.
Have you made yours yet? Be the best in the new week filled with direction and more.
Peace. Love. Light*
