The Blueprint Myth
It's easy to imagine that if not for certain choices (sometimes made by others), my life would have developed as it was "supposed to," that I would have reached my potential (whatever that is or was). But the original blueprint has been modified, completely overhauled. Sometimes, through the overlays, I can see the faint lines of the original and it is tempting to think that I can somehow get back to it.
Those decisions that rearranged my life: I didn't foresee how completely they would alter my design. I have no choice, however, but to live in the house I helped to build.
