I agree that in life, you have to walk, and create the way by your walking. There is rarely a ready made path designed specifically for your individual journey. Knowing this, I move forward one step at a time with a purpose that’s embedded deep within my being. Much of what I do along my journey is new to me. Processes and task that are sometimes extremely challenging, often requiring that I reach out to my network for knowledge or assistance. I crave the feeling of learning. When a way is not so clear that I can easily run and jump and soar across each step, then I know that I am existing outside of my comfort zone. Then I am accepting my charge to do more and to be more than I had previously imagined.

I have seen enough solar returns to have learned some key lessons in life. I’ve heard so many quotes about what we deserve.  The most popular was “You don’t get what you deserve, you get what you earn.” Growing up my mom would tell us “You get what you get, and you don’t pitch a fit.” Maybe she understood that although some people worked super hard, they would still maybe not get what they deserved. As kids we were told and taught that “Life isn’t fair.”
