Which way should I go, Alice In Wonderland asked the Rabbit.
The Rabbit asked back, “Where are you going?”
Alice, “I don’t know”.
Rabbit, “Then it doesn’t matter”.
Much of my life I didn’t know, and this led to an astonishing number of wasted years. Fun, but selfishly wasted.
How long is reasonable to finally figure it out?

“You no longer spend your life hurrying around the corner for something which is never there”. — Rex Harrison
If we’ve heard it once, we’ve heard it a thousand times. There is no guarantee in life, except that we will die.
There seems to be a delicate balance between hurrying and not hurrying. We shouldn’t rush blindly through life, bypassing life’s simple pleasures.
But then again, we can’t spend too much time doing what pleases us, because in the end, there really is much work to be done. Our: mind, body, spirit, money, community, job, sleep, errands, chores, etc.
If we take our cue from nature, animals are constantly trying to survive. There is always the threat of danger lurking somewhere. In nature the saying goes, “Survival of the fittest”. I’m not talking physically, I’m talking comprehensively.
Ya with me, comprehensively. This means your day will be really busy. Or not.
