Does society know whats best for you? We are provided a road map to achieve, according to society’s standards from a very young age. Since we are all unique, is the map provided truly best for all of us? We spend childhood soaking in all the information given, and are led to believe that we must stay on a certain course in order to lead a successful life. Get good grades, join social clubs, go to college, get a good job, find love and start a family. Does this road map sound familiar? How many of us can truly say that we knew exactly what we wanted out of life at 18 or even 21 years old? Why are we expected to know at that age level? Traveling down the highway to success can be very dangerous. We often miss out on life experiences that can only be experienced taking the long way to our destination. Instead of driving fast in order to chase down success, I suggest taking it easy and finding success in your every day life. By savoring the small achievements in life as they happen, you will find that the pace of life slows to a manageable pace that never leaves you rushing to find what you don’t know you’re looking for.
