There are definitely different paths we can take through life. That is something I always reinforce for my own kids as they ponder potential futures. The important thing, however, is to maintain a sense of moving along that path and not stagnating in one spot you happen to have settled in. Choosing a path should be active rather than passive.
Sounds like a familiar story….
I wrote this right before the pandemic closed down the community college library where I used to go to write, and they had a coffee shop, where one day I caught part of a conversation between the barista and another guy on this subject. I took the few bits I heard and filled in the gaps that I was prompted to think about from hearing them.
