destination

abstract (adj):Β existing in thought or as an idea but not having a physical or concrete existence.

My take on abstract is destination. Many of us feel like we don’t know where we’re going in life. Our destination is an inconstant glimmer in our minds; we never really know what obstacles we will meet along the way, ones that will change our path forever. It is good to have an idea of what we want in our futures, but it is also good to be open to change. Rarely does anything go exactly as planned, but when we meet these obstacles with an open heart we may find something we never would have discovered otherwise.

I see myself as the seed of a dandelion, landing here and there for moments, considering settling in, until a gust of wind picks me up and carries me away to somewhere new. I haven’t found the perfect place to grow yet.
