I'm the kind of person who likes to have things worked out. I like to have a plan and know where things are leading. At least that's how it's been. Don't get me wrong. I like a diverse world and like being diverse myself, but I always wanted to know that the path that I was on was leading to where I wanted to go. That's changing a little.
Now , I still believe that you should not be on a path that you know does not lead you where you would want to go or leads you somewhere you know you would not want to be. However, how can you know what you want without exploring a little? Also, it takes a little while for things to develop. I know what I know now, but I don't know what I'll know tomorrow. Its kind of arrogant for me to make decisions on days I have not even seen yet.
I think we all have parts of our soul that we know we have never fully fleshed out. It could be, because they were not popular ... Or, it could be that we just didn't have the time or want to spend that money on it. Or, maybe we just didn't believe in ourselves.
In Finding Forrester, Jamal was lecturing his teacher in one scene. He says...
"Yeah, and what's the reason in having a file cabinet full of writing and keeping the shit locked so nobody can read it? What is that man?"
Do you have things locked up in your imagination or your soul that you have yet to develop? I for one intend to take the next year to develop those things I like, so that I know where I want to go.
