Go...

I think this is true. Although it tends to be hard to find that direction in the first place. Are you giving us clues about happenings in your life? What direction are you going?

I love this quote, but boy, is it hard to trust yourself. Hey, Margot Potter suggested I email you about joining our blogging group, but I don't see your email posted anywhere. Please contact me at tammypowley@yahoo.com so I can give you details in case you are interested.

I get a lot of flack for saying that I believe in Fate and Destiny nowadays. I'd go into more detail about just what I believe, but for the moment I'd like to address just the direction part. Firstly, I think that each of us is embedded with a sense of purpose. Within each of us is a calling. But with life, there are distractions from this purpose... this thing we are meant to do. As we grow up, that thing becomes more clear or less... but I think the most important part is learning to trust yourself and believe in the message that lies within.

It is when you believe and trust and know who you are and what you are meant to do that all the arrows point without hesitation.
