Just because you cannot see
The direction that I’m heading
Doesn’t mean I’m directionless.
I walk a path I cannot see,
Trusting in my feelings,
Knowing where I’m going
Is greater than anything my mind could
I’m open to the possibilities,
Awaiting things I haven’t seen.
Knowing what I don’t want,
Where I’m not going is just
As important as knowing what I do.
My direction is not a road,
Already laid, prepared for me.
I’m building it as I go,
It hasn’t been seen before,
It never existed until now.
I know where I’m headed, in my heart
I know what I want
Is passion, satisfaction, joy, love
To make a difference, to be
I already have those things and
I follow them without hesitation.
For those who cannot see,
I’m sorry that you cannot reach beyond
The boxes you reside in.
But I won’t be boxed,
I won’t allow my direction to be
Shortened, stunted, changed or
Judged for being different.
I walk with the confidence that
My heart is true and let the rest all fade away.
I want something more that a job,
More than a career,
More than 2.5 kids and a dog.
I want excitement,
I want a reason for living that
Lights me up.
I want peace and contentment
That comes from a deeper place.
I want meaning.
That is my direction,
That is my way.
I will walk it every day
It would be death to be otherwise.
I need this reminder today. I need this reminder on any day when I’m feeling slightly lost and disconnected from my direction, when fear creeps in causing doubt to grow. I need to remember I’m on a path, a direction lead by my heart. Maybe remembering that will help warm my heart and bring me back to my direction.
What is your direction?
