Just remember that the things you put into your head are there forever, he said. You might want to think about that.
You forget some things, dont you?
Yes. You forget what you want to remember and you remember what you want to forget. – Cormac McCarthy
I’ve never been much of a dreamer. I was raised to be a do-er. In the past, I’ve terribly failed at finishing to-do lists, at setting goals, at achieving milestones, at dreaming big. I got things done. Without a plan, without a to-do list, without a strategy. In my late teens and throughout my 20s I was determined. To simply move forward. I never took a break, I never stopped, I never paused and thought about where I wanted to go and what I wanted to do. It still feels like it was yesterday, having that crystal clear vision of your life, of how it’s supposed to look and feel like. Back then I didn’t know I was lost. I didn’t know that life wasn’t about moving forward as fast as you can. But that it was about taking detours, even moving backward and then again deciding to take a new direction.
