If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there. Lewis Carroll
I stumbled upon this quote a few weeks back, it has made me stop and I have been thinking about it ever since. It’s a very simple statement and has a lot of truth to it. Apparently the roots of the quote are often tied back to Alice in Wonderland, but the quote cannot actually be found in the original text of the novel.
I struggle with this quote because some of my best experiences in life have come from the roads that I traveled on unintentionally, however I do believe it is important to have some markers along the path and plans set out to make sure one does not lose their way while taking a detour.
However, I have a hunch that this particular quote made me stop due to the fact that I am coming near to the end of another milestone in my life, grad school is going to come to a close in the next 6 months, and I am entering into a state of wondering what to do next… luckily there are options to choose from, the hard part is picking one to pursue!
