E.L. Doctorow once said that writing a novel is like driving a car at night. You can only see as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.
You don’t have to see where your going, you don’t have to see your destination or everything you will pass along the way. You just have to see two or three feet ahead of you.
This can be translated into anything in life, just keep pushing and working towards your dream and you will get there. The obstacles will come and go and you will find a way to get past them, but only if you put yourself into the path and push yourself to be the best person you can hope to be.
I come back to this quote a lot when I’m feeling unmotivated or lost, and it always grounds my perspective. We aren’t always going to have a clear view of what our lives will be, we can just move forward with the belief that it will work out in the end. I promise that it will, and hell.... even if it doesn’t, isn’t it better to die trying to reach your dreams, than to be sitting on the sidelines knowing that you just watched life slip through your hands?
