Drifting



Imagine a large branch falling from a tree into a flowing river. As it drifts, it gets snagged on rocks or other low-hanging branches. It might get pushed into still waters where it could remain indefinitely, potentially becoming waterlogged and sinking, never to continue its journey. It might get caught in small eddies or whirlpools and detained for an unknown period.

 

This drifting branch can symbolize my journey through life. Often, I fail to recognize the forces pushing me off course. Without a clear direction, how can I know where I am going? I get sidetracked by circumstances or people who exploit me for their gain. Without a strong sense of self and purpose, it's easy to veer off course, get snagged, interrupted, or caught up in unwanted situations. I often find myself pushed or pulled into places that don't align with my desires.

 

I believe in having clear targets on life's highway. Knowing what I want to achieve helps me use my time and energy best. Identifying the things that drain my time and energy—like mindless TV, YouTube videos, social media, and other distractions—can hold me back or derail me from my destiny.

 

So, what do I want? What's my plan? What am I waiting for? Who am I, and where am I going? These are the questions I need to answer so I can get on the course and realize my destiny rather than being a drifter. 

 

Don't get caught in life's drift. Be intentional and strategic about your destiny. I've declared that I will spend the next 20 years leaning forward, significantly impacting myself and everyone I encounter. 

 

How about you? Are you drifting?

 

Watch for the blind spots.
