The Road to Look Back On

Life is filled with mysteries and the unknown. We as humans have answered questions that our ancestors never would have even conceived to be answerable (if that’s a real word). But what’s the answer to “Where am I going in life?” We can consult the most prestigious scientists and talk to all of our friends and relatives, but ultimately you are the one who has the best answer.
From my personal experience, I honestly never would have thought I would be where I am today. Reflecting on my time with Ocapica has really made me realize how incredible it is how much I’ve changed ever since I first walked up the stairs in the Ocapica building. I remember walking in at the age of 14 thinking I knew everything about what I wanted to do and how I was going to achieve my goals, but left realizing I had a lot of work to do if I want to answer my biggest questions.
I look back at the beginning of the school semester and see that I’ve acquired so much knowledge in the time span of just a few months. Which made me realize that I’ve accomplished even more throughout my whole life. The reason I bring this up, is to make you realize how much an individual can accomplish. I hope by doing so, you feel even motivated to continue learning and going through life as if it is the road. The Road to Look Back On.

Live your life to learn, so you can learn to live your life.

Focus on the Journey
