“I’ll Be Where I Need to Be”

A few months ago, a conversation between friends went like this:

First, Cosmo asked where Sam would be [in life] a year from now. Sam replied with a few solid guesses of where she’d be, what she’d be working on, and why. Then she asked Cosmo the same question.

Cosmo’s response? “I don’t know [anything except that] I’ll be where I need to be.”

This struck me as pretty powerful. It really resonated. Not just because of the resolve with which Cosmo said it, but also because it’s almost the ultimate statement of confidence in the present, a decalaration of faith in the universe.

To have experienced, reflected, and lived enough to 100% know you’ll be where you need to be a year from now, not where someone else wants you to be, or where you think you should be. That’s powerful.

“Wherever you are, there you are.”
