Again, you can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backward. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.
In an earlier post I wrote about a section in my journal titled The Dot Project. During one of my periods of reflection I realized that most, if not all, of my journal writings would go away when I go away. While not exactly an epiphany I came to understand that I wanted some of my writing preserved where they could be found and read by my family. Mostly memoir the musings you’ll find here are short snippets of the dots in my life. They are the moments both big and small that I cherish as they came together over time as important points in life. The life significance of various decision dots in the past were never clear until the present time.
