As long as you're alive, people are gonna wanna put you in a box. Their box. According to what they know, what they expect. But I'm realizing that I gotta make my own choices, find out what's worth my time, and what I'm passionate about.
I can't choose something just cause' some people say I should.
I need to form my own convictions & choose well.
If I choose wrong, I live with it.
But thanks be to God, no matter how lost I am, I know as long as I realize I'm lost & ask for guidance, I'll find my way Home.
So be careful what voices you listen to. In the end, it's not about your grand plans or other people's plans. The best place to be is your God-given destiny. The best person to be is your God-given identity. Anything else will never satisfy your heart & soul fully.
As my favorite proverb goes, 'A man's heart plans his way, but God directs his steps.'
