Life doesn’t always go as we plan. It doesn’t always fit into a mold that others create. I made decisions in my life that may have slowed down my progress; that may have made it more challenging to achieve the goals I made for myself. But with every step we take, we get a clearer understanding of what we want our destination to be. What your goals are in your teens or early twenties changes as you get older. It changes because things change but also because you as a person changes. Even if how I achieve my goals is taking more time than it “should,” the idea is that I never go backward.
