So another wedding engagement announced, a second wedding photo shared, and I can’t help but wonder if I am doing the right thing. Is this where I am supposed to be at 24? Am I less than my peers because I have chosen to blaze my own trail? And just as I begin to feel sorry for my sad, sorry self, sitting in my childhood bedroom, the super hero yogic brain kicks in and sends the shitty committee to the back of the “room” where they stay quiet.
We are all on our own path.
Plain and simple. Though our paths may converge at some point, like the freshman year of college, or the time we worked together, our journeys through life are all our own. The challenge is to stay true to your path, and not be distracted by another’s or by what your community/culture/society expects you to be doing. And when you are true to your self, your path through life becomes less like walking a pirate’s plank and more of that yellow brick road you’ve been dreaming of.
