Today I opened the drawer of my nightstand to look for my headphones. My handwriting scribbled on the back of what looked like a postcard caught my eye. I turned it over to see it was an old photograph I'd taken while in Mongolia, which I had printed on postcard paper.
It's kind of funny I used that paper, because it did feel as if I'd sent my future self a note. I vaguely remember writing the words on it. I remember knowing they were important, and they helped me at the time. When I re-read them they again helped me. They were just the words I needed to read, and it's no coincidence I found them today. It never ceases to amaze me how life is always lighting the dark, unknown path ahead, leaving us little notes to remind us we're on the right path, and to just keep going.
Below are the words I had scribbled all those years ago, along with the photo I had written them.
You need to go on without a clear picture of where you are,
where you are going or where you have been.
You do not have to fear the unknown.
With intuition and faith in yourself and benevolent forces, you can succeed.
