We choose paths for ourselves both in moments of great tension as well as desire. We may choose these paths with care and calculation. Some of us have envisioned our paths from the tree houses and swing sets of our childhoods. Some of us have even been lucky enough to create new paths for themselves when the current one was washed away in a flood. And, shockingly enough, some of us never even open our eyes wide enough to see the very path we have been treading along this whole time.
