If you’re uncertain

You can’t know what the perfect path will be, you can’t know what the perfect you should be, you can’t know what your purpose in life is until it starts to uncover itself. You can’t know your destination until you get there. So instead of spinning your wheels with the unknowable, focus on what you actually have right in front of you.

Sightseeing Pont du Gard

The other afternoon we went for a little sightseeing in the rain. This was amazing, really. The place is called Pont du Gard and is located about 25 minutes west of Avignon. It’s an ancient Roman aqueduct bridge that crosses the Gardon River and is on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites.

It's a huge bridge/aqueduct

This time we didn’t get into the museum, though we’ve heard it’s a really nice one. But the outside part of the place, the actual aqueduct is worthwhile just by itself.

We crossed the bridge and got over to the other side

It's amazing to see the old building, and to think of how it's been done

Follow your longings

When you follow the longings of your heart and listen to the desires of your true self, a universe of possibilities will open up and you’ll step through a doorway into a completely new reality. Meaningful coincidences will begin to occur – for example, the right job will come along at the right time. You’ll seem to have an almost magic touch, attracting the right people and the best opportunities into your life. But these kinds of happenings will be nothing more than confirmation from the world that you’re now on your authentic path.
