I have been listening and talking with several friends. The only advice that I have to really give to all of them is: Look forward.
I think that a lot of times we forget that we are exactly where we are supposed to be at this very moment in time. Please don't misread that.
We are exactly where we are supposed to be.
Exactly where we WANT to be. Big difference made by the big guy upstairs. He knows our wants. He knows are needs. He knows how best to get us where we NEED to be.
I think that looking back in a little bit, you will see that given all the circumstances that surround you at this particular moment, you will see that where you WANTED to be coincides perfectly with where you NEEDED to be.
Funny how that works.
Each of us is unique...just like everyone else.
Since no one is the same, each of us that tries to take the same exact path will end up in different places.
