I really liked Oprah's question: What do you know to be true?

I have learned to be a continual learner and and often question myself but as time goes by and experiences are compiled, some things settle into a pattern and give me what I consider "my own personal truth"....what I have come to believe. I hope I never stop asking myself to identify those truths over and over and over because they define my path.

Wow, it is early in the morning for this...I gotta go rest now!!

Holy crap! Am I going somewhere? What is this handbasket? Where AM I going? And will there be espresso when I get there?
That is the really important question.

I think it's a good thing not to have it all so planned out that I always know where I'm going. Getting there is half the fun. Knowing exactly where I'm going might close off so many different opportunities that present itself along the way.

If you don't know where you are going, then you can always be open to an infinite of surprises.

I don't think any of us really knows where we are going. It's all just a best guess. As I move through my life as a storyteller, educator, father, grandfather, and husband all of the little surprises, unexpected contacts, shifts in the road, and general events of living create the next steps. I can only see as far as the next bend in the road or the top of the next hill. It's all new when I get there.
I follow my grandfather's advice in three steps. Step 1: If you don't live life you'll miss it, Step 2: When it's all said and done if it's not a good story then you missed something, and Step 3: Live from your heart it's the best you can ever do. This from a man with a third grade education.

I know where I am going, but wonder if I can afford the dang gas to get there!

“Would you tell me please, which way I ought to go from here?”

“That depends a good deal on where you want to go,” said the Cat.

“I don’t much care where—” said Alice.

“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the Cat.

“—so long as I get somewhere,” Alice added as an explanation.

“Oh, you’re sure to do that,” said the Cat, “if you only walk long enough.”

Hmmm...so, if I fall down a hole, drink, play cards, and talk to animals I can probably get through life without any goals. It worked for Alice.

....you are likely to end up somewhere else.

To have goals or not to have goals, either way you have goals. If you choose or create them they are conscious. If you do not you are at the mercy of timing and situations. I prefer to have goals, yet open goals that can either change as I round a corner, turn a page, or meet someone new each day.

When I logged on I didn't know what kind of questions would be asked. But I went to Wikopedia and they listed several ways to answer questions. Then I saw this site, it has very playful questions.
Your question shows the need for goals.
I would say enjoy the journey. Sharon
