Wherever You Go, That's Where You Are

We lead our lives like water flowing down a hill, 
going more or less in one direction
until we splash into something that forces us 
to find a new path.
-Sayuri; "Memoirs of a Geisha" by Arthur Golden

I love this quote. It reminds me that although consistency can be comfortable, sometimes continuing on as we always do can get a little stale and boring and before you know it, a year or two has passed and you've barely noticed. Spring is the perfect time to 'splash into' something! Shake up your routine a little bit, try something new, put yourself on a slightly different path in life and see where it leads.

We don't always get to choose what to splash into though. Sometimes things just show up and we have no choice but to hit them and wait and see how life will change. When those boulders and rocks shake up your path unexpectedly, I encourage you to embrace and explore the new path that you find yourself traveling instead of just trying to make everything return to normal. Sometimes you need to embrace a new normal. 

When you're trying to figure out where you are and where you're headed, just remember: wherever you go, that's where you are, so be present with that and don't waste your time and energy trying to be in a place that you're not. Set goals to help you direct your path, and dream dreams that you can work toward manifesting. Pay attention to where you are, because you never know when the river of your life will strike another rock in the hill and change paths once again.



  1. Once you push the boulder up hill, you'll be happy when you reach the top...great article.

  2. Sometimes I'm lost, really do not know where I'm at and wasting my time doing things I do not like. This one is great post!

  4. Great post! It's so important to keep dreaming, keep your goals in sight, and forge ahead!

  5. You just have to remember to keep moving forward- it's much easier to go willingly than to be pushed along!
