What you don't want

People used to tell me this, sort of, saying, "Well, at least you know what you *don't want."

As if figuring out a thing you don't want, and "X"ing it off the list will help you on the path to figuring it out.

I've found this isn't the case. We can find all kinds of things we don't want. Most things in the world are things we don't really want. They're not for us. And that is OK.


This led me to feeling like wandering Alice for quite some time.

“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”

“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat.

“I don’t much care where—” said Alice.

“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the Cat.

“—so long as I get somewhere,” Alice added as an explanation.

“Oh, you’re sure to do that,” said the Cat, “if you only walk long enough.”

While no one likes to wander aimlessly or to feel lost, movement is important. It might even be the most important thing.

Taking action, even if you're not certain it's the thing you want to do, not certain that it's your life passion... by showing up and doing things, you are creating a magic serendipity potion without even realizing it.

You can't predict what will happen, who you will meet, how you will grow...

In this moment, what's important is the choice you make to show up.
