It’s harder, for sure, and kind of scary sometimes. But it will allow you to look at yourself in the mirror and know you’re playing by your own rules."
For some reason I read this article backwards. In the paragraph just before the one I included, he used the example of The Joker from the Dark Night movie:
"My favorite part of The Dark Knight is when the Joker is talking to Harvey Dent in the hospital, and he says: “Do I really look like a guy with a plan? You know what I am? I’m a dog chasing cars. I wouldn’t know what to do with one if I caught it! You know, I just DO things… I’m not a schemer. I try to show the schemers how pathetic their attempts to control things really are.”
Now, being a Christian believer and all of that (Calvinist even), I don't agree that there is NO set plan in life - I don't believe that we exactly know God's plan, only that the plan is good. And that is what I find freeing. I love doing what I like.
(Just read the "about" section and the guy is a blogger and video editor. No wonder this speaks to my heart.)
