How do you know where you're going if you don't know how to get there? Like Lewis Carroll the mastermind behind "Alice in Wonderland" said, "If you don't know where you're going any road will get you there."
I visited my childhood home a few weeks ago and it provided me the opportunity to reflect on where I came from and where I'm going. It brought back a lot of good memories, but I couldn't help but notice how much my childhood home had deteriorated. It encouraged me to continue to grow and strive to be better than my past.
Each of us should take time to reflect on our own life whether it's visiting a childhood home or connecting with a childhood friend or family member. It may just prove to lead you down the road you were looking for all along.
To quote the wise words of Alice in the 2016 rom-com, How to Be Single: "The thing about being single is, you should cherish it. Because, in a week, or a lifetime, of being alone, you may only get one moment. One moment, when you're not tied up in a relationship with anyone. A parent, a pet, a sibling, a friend. One moment, when you stand on your own. Really, truly single. And then. . . It's gone."
