Thought for the Day

Like a life, a journey assumes a shape and a meaning that are only 
clear afterward, and like a journey, a life requires that you learn 
to let go of the plan when the actuality departs from it, to embrace 
what's arriving, let go of what's departing, 
to move forward and not get stuck.
~ Rebecca Solnit

Quoted from Rebecca Solnit, "The Art of Arrival: Rebecca Solnit on Travel and Friendship", Orion, Summer 2014 (This essay also was featured as a Longreads Exclusive.)

I think it is a real challenge to get the hang of embracing what comes from walking a path that was not clearly what i had in mind.
