The Fork In The Road

August 8, 2011

Ever come to a point in your life where you need to make a choice? We always struggle with our choices, it is almost easier to be told what to do in life, than it is to choose a path with confidence.  With choice comes fear that we will choose the wrong direction. But can we really choose the wrong path in life? I don’t believe so. I do not believe in right or wrong, I believe in different. Right and wrong are relative statements.

Your life is like a weathervane… it naturally leads you along a certain path (the path of your destiny). It isn’t until the winds of change blow that you may find yourself off-course a bit. But here’s the deal… you can only go so far down that “off” path until the weathervane snaps you back onto your path of destiny. The winds that can blow you off-course don’t blow forever… eventually you will find yourself back on the right path. You will just have had new and different experiences along that wind-swept path but your lessons always remain the same. They may just be experienced in a different manner than previously planned.

Never fear making a choice. You can never lose by choosing what is true to you at the time. There are no right or wrong choices in life, there are only different experiences. You can only lose yourself for so long before the universe summons you back to your path. Facing a fork in the road means making a choice. When you realize that there are no wrong choices in life only different experiences, you empower yourself. You are never lost. You are never broken. A fork in the road is only the beginning of the journey, never the end.

When You Walk With Your Head Down

… you walk into walls. It’s common sense. When you’re not looking where you’re going, you’re most likely going to end up somewhere you don’t want to be. Most of us sleepwalk our way through our lives — running the mouse wheel of life. We are so busy trying to make a living that we […]

It’s Not About Making The Right Choice

… it’s about accepting the choice you’ve already made. Our life’s path is made up of choices and there are no mistakes when it comes to making choices, because there are no right or wrong choices, there are only different choices. Don’t get caught up in the choice you’ve made – make it and move on. […]

Looking Back to the Past

… is only helpful to the extent it allows you to move forward into your future.  If it doesn’t, it keeps you back. Your life is only ever in front of you, never behind you. The past can be an informative tool if we don’t get trapped in it. If you want to uncover the […]

A Mid-life Crisis

… requires a mid-course correction. A mid-life crisis can happen at any age, but the wisdom here is that the secret to healing it, is in the way we define it. Life naturally has its ups and downs, and life is constantly asking you to define who you are in relationship to it. You’re never […]

When You’re in the Flow

… everything moves with you. And when you are not, nothing works. When you are in the flow of your life – flowing downstream — everything flows along side you. When you are out of that flow – pushing upstream — things are much more difficult. How do you know the difference? Ask yourself how […]
