Am I carving out the right path?



Am I on the right path? Am I doing whatever I was born for? Am I working towards my role on earth? Am I the only one with these questions, or does anyone else out there thinks so too?

We don’t have a predestined path. We don’t have a destiny or fate or providence governing our life. We carve our own path. Am I carving it right? How do I carve it right? Am I meant to be here, where I currently am?

These questions torment me many times a day. I read quotes to uplift my mood; blogs to feel inspired and motivated once again; and continue with my day. So today, in my post, I share some of the best quotations, sayings and thoughts that helped me out some day. These are potent enough to help you too.

I don’t really get my answers from these, but they do provide me with momentary relief. I understand that one cannot know about the intricacies of life without living it. So I need to go on living it in my best possible way.

“I have been finding treasures in places I did not want to search. I have been hearing wisdom from tongues I did not want to listen. I have been finding beauty where I did not want to look. And I have learned so much from journeys I did not want to take. Forgive me, O Gracious One; for I have been closing my ears and eyes for too long. I have learned that miracles are only called miracles because they are often witnessed by only those who can can see through all of life's illusions. I am ready to see what really exists on other side, what exists behind the blinds, and taste all the ugly fruit instead of all that looks right, plump and ripe.”

“The splendid thing
about falling apart
silently...
is that
you can start over
as many times
as you like.”
Sanober Khan, A Thousand Flamingos 
 

“In life one has a choice to take one of two paths: to wait for some special day - or to celebrate each special day.”
Rasheed Ogunlaru 
 

“While you'll feel compelled to charge forward it's often a gentle step back that will reveal to you where you and what you truly seek.”
Rasheed Ogunlaru

“You are worthy of your wildest dreams.”
Nicole Guillaume

“The best part of the journey is the surprise and wonder along the way.”
Ken Poirot

“We are all beautiful instruments of God. He created many notes in music so that we would not be stuck playing the same song. Be music always. Keep changing the keys, tones, pitch, and volume of each of the songs you create along your journey and play on. Nobody will ever reach ultimate perfection in this lifetime, but trying to achieve it is a full-time job. Start now and don't stop. Make your book of life a musical. Never abandon obligations, but have fun leaving behind a colorful legacy. Never allow anybody to be the composer of your own destiny. Take control of your life, and never allow limitations implanted by society, tell you how your music is supposed to sound — or how your book is supposed to be written.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem
 

“Even if we have ourselves so fully convinced that we are on the right track because we desperately want to believe that the specific direction we have chosen is the "correct one", if the universe disagrees with our choices, it will not be shy in telling us so.”
Miya Yamanouchi
