Looking back at some NTL entries, I realize that over the past 4 years they have been my "Morning Pages". They have helped me immensely as I navigated some rocky pathways and eventually found my way.

It may not be easy and it may not be quick, but make sure your trajectory is always heading closer to your intended life.
