The sun sets on another day…
Sunset was magnificent and as the sky opened its mall and swallowed the glowing orb to the West I could only clap and say bravo.
I find myself in a unique position where the shortest distance between two points is not a straight line. I know that is a constant nearly everywhere but in this particular case I found myself laughing as I realized that there is a reason for wavy lines sometimes.
It seems like sometimes you cannot get where you want to go as easily as you want. Instead you have to wander between a series of paths until the right path opens up. It is here that I found myself today wandering between paths trying to decide which way to go. I once found myself in a similar position and I stood on the top of a hill looking at the paths before me. I made a decision then had that decision taken away from me. As I sit here today, I am looking into a forest of ferns with no path before me trying to decide the path that I will take. It’s not that the path is difficult except that it will be the road never traveled.
In the past the road never traveled was always my go to. Now, I wonder consistently if perhaps it’s time to consider the familiar road. That is why I take the wavy lines. I have seen so many people take the familiar road and not find anything that made them feel better about life. There are also people that think they are taking a familiar road and instead they are blazing a new pathway based on new rules. As I consider that the familiar road is rapidly being removed from the list of potential pathways.
Here I sit, considering how I want to proceed and along the way taking you with me. No, I’m not going to get into the pathways right now but suffice it to say that sometimes there are critical junctions in life that make you think “why have I not done more?” I have a very good friend who made that choice a long time ago and found a unique and tasty pathway to travel through life. Perhaps it’s time to do similar.
So as the sun sets on another day, find the path that works for you. What works for you may not work for others and vice versa. Make yourself amazing and move forward powerfully into your new day. Tonight’s sun may have set but there is still time left to change the world, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and keep living…
