You’re not lost.
Imagine yourself driving to a destination.
You don’t have directions but you’re familiarizing yourself with landmarks (mountains, trees, where the sun is in the sky, etc.) and taking a few turns here and there. Ultimately, you make a few bad turns but you still get to where you need to go.
That’s what life is like. You make a few missteps and take a different route than you originally intended, but we are firm believers that anything and everything counts towards your ultimate destination. Everything is a learning experience if you frame it like that.
So it’s important to have a grasp of things that can be leveraged along the way.
Trust your gut when you’re discovering new turns and learn when to backtrack, if needed, to move forward. There’s a magic to being flexible with your journey, so keep visualizing the destination and do whatever it takes so that you arrive.
