Against the Wind
Another is "Live on Purpose." So many meanings to this - often the simplest sayings are the hardest to understand. To many, this means to live a godly life or to live under a common purpose. What I've been considering is a different meaning - live your life according to a purpose and not simply letting purpose come to you. I have struggled with this off and on my entire life. I still don't have an answer, other than I strive to figure things out when I realize what I'm doing.
To put both of these together is far more difficult. I need to be able to react to things with the knowledge that comes from experience, but without preconceptions that will cloud my judgement. I also need to make judgments and plan according to my beliefs while keeping others from unfairly influencing my opinions.
And that's easier said than done. But no one ever said life was going to be easy - well, no one that I trust.
