Truly, the universe conspires to help us. It’s like what Steve Jobs once said: “You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever.”
I randomly came across the book Little Princes: One Man’s Promise to Bring Home the Lost Children of Nepal a couple of days back and while the content of the book has little relevance to my new found realization, the questions and thoughts I had from reading the book did. It led me to the realization that I am probably on the right track despite being clueless on my direction and purpose in life. It matters not that I have not found my purpose in life as long as I keep moving forward. Living according to my beliefs and to continuously search, learn, explore and improve myself. One day, I will be able to connect the dots looking backwards.
Though I may not be contributing to the world in a meaningful way right now, I’m an inch closer.
