“It isn’t where you come from; it’s where you’re going that counts.”Ella Fitzgerald
Finding our purpose in life is a confusing journey with competing forces acting against us. On the one hand, there's the force of our family background and history telling us who we should be. And then there's our hopes and dreams which inspire us to look ahead and be the author of our own future. Balancing these two forces, in right and honorable ways, is a life-long challenge.
Your future shapes who you are.
Your past shapes who you are.
Should we look to the future or the past for guidance?
