We all have a role to play, but only we know what our role is. Paths unfold only when we walk them. Don’t let someone who is not you tell you what you should do. They’re not you and you’re not them. They don’t know and will never know what’s for you, just as you don’t know and will never know what’s for them. If they’re spending their precious moments on Earth worrying about what you should be doing with yours, they’re wasting theirs. Don’t let them waste yours.
Your life and your time are precious jewels. If someone thinks that it’s their job to point out the way your path should be spiralling, they’re likely ignoring the jewels of their own life. Don’t let their distractedness distract you from yours. Keep your gaze set. Politely invite them to do the same.
As you walk your spiral you’ll find yourself turning toward others and others turning toward you. What a wonderful thing, to share your journey. And while your path may naturally influence another’s, keep walking your way when the inevitable call to turn comes. And it always comes. Endings are necessary for beginnings to happen.
As you walk your spiral you’ll find that others’ spirals may overlap and activate you along your way. Let them. But don’t let seeing someone else’s potential unfolding convince you to boycott your own. This won’t help you or them. Keep walking on.
Don’t let someone who is walking a different path to your own tell you how to walk yours.
Nobody but you can or will ever know what it takes, has taken, and will take to walk your way. Wave them on, and without waver, keep trusting the seeds that have always been planted deep within.
