Soul Searching

I've been doing a lot of soul searching lately as my future looms in front of me.  What do I want with my life?  What do I want to be known for?  What is my destiny?  These are the questions that parade daily through my head. A boisterous marching band sings songs of hope and vision. Protestors, in turn, shout out slogans contradicting that of the band.  The gaudy floats have an even different message.  The answers aren't simple, and they're far from clear, in fact, their closer to convoluted and murky.  I'm a little tired of watching the parade to be honest.  I'm tired of not knowing, but sometimes, the not knowing is the fun part.  The dreaming can be just as exciting as the destination. I plan to continue listening to the crazy rants, songs, tirades, and dreams of the parade and  if nothing else, I hope to see fireworks, if not  a push in some type of direction.  A friend of mine sent me this  speech recently which pertains to this soul search.
 It's a great speech.  I hope your inspired by it as I was.

There are many destinations along the journey. Just because you get to a destination... does not mean that the days of dreaming are ended.
