We are encouraged to be strategic, have vision, and make decisions for the long term. But the truth is we see only what each choice uncovers. We can look ahead and map out a plan, predicting what will happen, and how we will respond. But the instant we make a decision and act, a new reality is born, and the world we knew only seconds ago has faded. There are no guarantees or absolutes. All we can do is have faith in ourselves and the choices we make, and know, life will offer us the experiences we are meant to have.
