On My Search For Something (#114)

I’m not sure what the future holds for any of us. I can plan endlessly and concoct the perfect answer when asked what my five year plan is….until it changes.

The future is uncertain and as I search relentlessly for my place in it all, I’ll use gratitude to keep my focus. As I work towards my goals and dreams, my search for purpose, I can use gratitude to keep me present. So on my search for something, I’m content with being exactly where I am. My quest for something bigger never ends and never falters.
