Blog » Follow the clues (Tuesday, 19 June 2018)

Along the path that led me to this moment, I have been following crumbs, picking up broken twigs, cataloging tracks. The world seems to be full of people who know where they’re headed. How they’re going to get there, when they’ll get there and what the weather will be like. I’m not one of them. I’ve spent way too many years believing I was doing life wrong. No five year plans. No “Big Worthy Goal”. None of the habits the world tells me I need to cultivate to be ‘successful’.

And yet, I have done things – some of them BIG things! I have been places, experienced things, made things. I have laughed and cried and loved and felt all the things.

More and more, I’m questioning the wisdom of a culture that focuses on doing instead of beingAcquiring instead of experiencingdeterminedly chasing goals instead of curiously following breadcrumbs.

This breadcrumb thing is working out okay for me.

Think I might stick with it.

What tiny clue or crumb has been calling for your attention? I’d love to know. I’m rather partial to crumbs.
