SSetting Sail with Ice Resin and Walnut Hollow

Life’s journey is unique to each individual. Some people have it planned out, while others, like myself go wherever the wind blows.

On my journey I have experienced calm waters and smooth sailing as well as, strong winds and high waves while riding out a storm. The difficult times have forced me to change and develop along the way, but I have allowed myself to be moved forward without a destination in mind.

I feel as though I’ve been traveling aimlessly, moved about by temporary desires or moments of crisis. These two things much like the wind have been changeable and unrestrained causing me to move in unpredictable directions.

These strong feelings of wanting have given me drive, which in turn has set me in motion and I am now at a place where my heart has established destinations for my journey.

What about YOU? Have you figured out where you want to go in this journey called life? What you want to accomplish along the way? If so, then all we have to do is adjust our goals, like the sails of a ship, in the direction we are passionate about reaching.

Take control of your journey.
