A Journey of a Thousand Steps

Updated: Sep 3, 2018

As long as I can remember, music has been a part of life. It seems to be something I cannot escape from; it’s a part of me, it’s what I love, it’s who I am. Music is my oldest, dearest friend.

I began playing the guitar when I was 6 years old, then the violin when I was 8, the piano when I was 10, and I started singing when I was 15. But apart from music, God has blessed me with many other talents as well. Some say I am fortunate to have been gifted with so many talents. I believe I am. I also know however, that having several talents can be a hindrance when a young person is trying to discover exactly what their purpose in life is. So it was for me.

When I reached the age at which one must start thinking about long term choices and goals, I did not know what to do. I suddenly felt that the talents I had been blessed with were now a brick wall, stopping me from accomplishing things I dreamed about, instead of being doors of possibilities. I thus began down a road of self-discovery. It was not an easy journey, and suffice it to say, I am still on that journey. Who knows where it will take me. But now, instead of looking down the road questioning where it ends and what I will become when I get there, I am learning to enjoy the scenery while on the journey and look forward with excitement about what tomorrow holds.

In looking back at the time when I was lost and wary about what I would become and what part I would play in this great big world, I realize now that each of my talents has been a gift from God, and each of them had a part in helping me get where I am today. So instead of trying to discover for myself what my purpose is and make my own dreams happen, I have decided to let God lead the way, and show me His will for my life.
