there is a path. a seemingly crowded path at first. the path is not marked, however still clear. the people are drawn to each other as they walk into different directions. they converse, share stories, & qualities of themselves that they each contain. as they walk some people begin to naturally walk closer to one another, taking strides together; while others slowly drift away. the directions that people take are different, not at all the same.
the path is unmarked. being unmarked, who is to determine which is the right way to go? how do you know who to follow, how far, and where to? you don't. you don't follow anyone at all. this is your path, & yours alone. you come across various guides along the way, but they are just that: guides. the correct ones will merely aide you what comes of your choices and decisions within this path, but they will not dictate or push you one way or another. do not be distracted by the people along your side, their presence isn't always of high value. why is this? because although they may be walking with you right now, they might not be in the future. they are not walking your path, so do not be fooled. your paths are just crossing for a brief moment in time.
the path is unmarked, but you are on it. to the outsider, your path may look rough, warped, or daunting. ignore them, they do not know where yours leads or why it currently looks this way. they also do not know your strengths. looks are deceiving, do not take a direction simply because it looks like an easy journey. you may be tired, worn out and worn down, but do not allow it to shift your direction negatively. instead, take a sidestep and rest for a breath. you could also be motivated, have energy to take on his adventure, & be ready to go onward. so go onward. the important thing is to continue on the path any way that feels right for you. you must follow the path with your heart, not your eyes. let your soul lead the way, it knows where it needs to go and how to get there.
