Here's one thing that I am sure of, at the end of the day, it always boils down to living the life to our likeness and satisfaction whether the traditional career-life pattern or the challenging "road less traveled" life. But I gotta say, I admire those people who know exactly what they want out of this life on earth. I am still figuring it out but soon I will.
Live like you are going to die later. As morbid as it sounds, it will make you think of what your actions will be.
