This quote has been my mantra as I’ve been navigating the journey of my twenties. I threw off my bowlines, sailed away from the harbour, caught the tradewinds, but got stuck. I stopped my journey for awhile, as I was unsure of the direction to sail my ship. The wind (i.e., the passion) was there; I was just unsure in which direction to steer. Do I choose mainstream (i.e., the common path) or set my own course?
During my pitstop, I reflected on my life journey thus far and where I could go from there. I wanted to manifest my calling of empowering others to persist despite any setbacks they encountered. As I was stuck momentarily, I decided to use my personal journey as a tool to start discussion and implement change. Therefore, I developed my blog as a way to coach others to navigate their personal journeys. I went against the wind and began creating empowering media; I was turning my dream of helping others thrive into a reality.
