Drifting Away

Updated: Aug 23, 2021


The thing with drifting, is that it happens very slowly.


You can drift towards or drift away, but so slowly in fact that you hardly even notice.


This is also how life happens.


And if you’re not navigating your own way,


You’re at the mercy of the different currents


And where the winds blow, you go.


That’s the whole point with anchors,


They are meant to keep you grounded like the roots of a tree.


To ensure you don’t get lost out at sea or blow away with the breeze.


And life too needs to be anchored. To be rooted.


To be based in something firm.


In some guiding principles, a compass that points to true north.
