Desiderata


This may sound silly - but I could not have stumbled across this poem at a more fitting moment than when I did.  I am at the stage in my life, close to finishing University, where lots of decisions are being made about my future.  I've noticed there's a tendency amongst my fellow students (and myself) to watch what everyone else is doing...to see if we're doing enough...if we're doing the 'right' thing.  All of these magical moments are being overlooked because we're far too busy watching one another.  Sadly, I think that this can be the case for the rest of our lives if we're not careful, and this poem certainly put me in my place - something I couldn't be happier about.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
