"Do you think your life has turned out the way you had wanted it to? What/where would you rather be?" Asks Ria.

I don't think so. I think it could have, but I got lost along the way. Sometimes circumstances make you forget how to read the compass, and by the time you realize what has happened you're drifting on gusts of wind - somewhere there, somewhere here. At which point you know that even though drifting is deliciously easy (because who doesn't like floating with the wind?), it's going to take a lot more than the epiphany to take you back to the ground and get you moving in a defined direction. It's going to take courage to take the risks involved in letting go of the comfortable cloud you're sitting on right now. In order to move forward, I'm going to have to let go of what I have right now.

And am I ready to do that, I wonder?

I can relate to what you have written. I feel the same about my life. In fact, I am still trying to figure out where I want to be and who I want to be. Is this normal? I hope so!
