Meandering

 Life is full of choices

even not making a choice is one …

 

We can choose to meander through life or set our own course

it’s easy and comfortable to meander along with societal norms

 

As charting our own course is venturing into the unknown

it’s daring to be different and taking responsibility for our choices

 

It’s following our dreams and being true to our core values

it’s about questioning the norms that society imposes

 

Do you meander or are you brave enough to chart your own course?

  1. I felt like this was written for me Kate.
    Somehow it makes my weary mind calmer reading this…..the thought that someone at the other side of the world has the same thought as i am is really comforting..and if your thoughts and my thoughts would be the thoughts of everyone else then maybr just maybe things a lot better..but sadly it isn’t the case..

  2. I don’t think I’ve ever wanted to Captain the ship. I prefer to throw myself in the ocean and see which way the current takes me. But there are lots of currents in the ocean. Everyone has their own current to find. Or better still let it find them.

  3. I think over the course of our lives…we do each of those! 🙂
    At times, like prepping for university…I planned and set goals and am so glad now that I did.
    But in my heart, I am a meanderer! 🙂
    Great write, Kate! 🙂
    HUGS!!! 🙂

  4. Nice post! I actually wrote about how I meander through life. It’s not that I don’t have a destination, just that I’m flexible how I get there and open to opportunities along the way. I also love the comment that not making a choice is a choice. Great point!

      1. You are kind… thank you. But I’m sure my life isn’t all that exciting. But most of my daily inspired pieces are written with what I see just outside my picture window – nature, naturally.

          1. I’ve got a page on my fiction side for all the CR posts I’ve written… Some are biographical. Or BoTS = Based on a True Story. Not all are pretty. (I’ve written over 150 99 word pieces for CR.)

              1. lol with all our chatter back and forth this one landed in my spam for some reason … not bogged down, more impressed by your skills and diverse but profound topics … shame there is not more hours in the day to read 🙂

              2. Yep – I had one of yours end up in either spam or trash…- I retrieved it. Maybe those great internet powers that be – think too much chatter needs to be looked at twice?

                I think as it is 4am here that I’d better try and get some more winks in… 🙂
