I guess we all have… So often everything seems so clear, so straight forward, so obvious. We know who we are and where we want to go, which tools we want to use to get there. And then from one moment to the other we have no clue anymore. Either something throws us off or we just wake up and don’t see as clear anymore. Isn’t it crazy how things can change and throw us off?
I have often wondered if there are people who never get to such a point, who never reach that cross road and can’t decide which direction to choose and therefor just stand still, hoping to suddenly see clearer or get some help from the outside. I wonder if there are people who never stand in front of a huge obstacle and don’t know how to get passed. I wonder if there are people who feel as if their ride is smooth always.
I doubt it. Life is all about those cross roads and obstacles and doubts and turning points. It is about choosing a path without really knowing where it will lead you. And it is about all the decision we make on our way.
We choose a path and we grow while following it. We grow by encountering obstacles on our way and by overcoming them. We grow by realizing that we might have chosen the wrong path. Although moving forward, even if it is into the opposite direction, seems shear impossible in certain moments, we need to keep going. We need to believe and keep swimming.
Your path might seem straight forward but can still take a sudden turn. It can also seem steep and rocky but the moment you take a turn it might suddenly be smooth. So what if you stop moving forward? What if you are not walking on? You might never experience the smooth ride.
You never know what waits for you around the next corner. It’s just part of our life. It is the same for every one of us. And it makes life challenging, beautiful and worth living.
