On the trail there is only one way to the end. Well, I guess there are two: forward to see new places, create new experiences, or backward going only where you've been. Must put one foot in front of the other. Must keep moving.
The creativity in your approach is entirely up to you. Oblivion can be your ally. It can be incredibly silly and fun or it can harm you.
But overthinking the issue, trying to control the outcome and pouting is surely a miserable experience. This is the road to nowhere. We all have our own unique approach.
Change comes anyway, we cannot grab time and refuse to let it go. Opportunity is readily upon us, must put one foot in front of the other. Must keep moving. Forward.
