Your Path

“Does the walker choose the path, or the path the walker?”
Garth Nix.

.
Life’s path often looks more like a maze than a straight line. Looking back we may see we have taken wrong turns, hit dead ends, lost time, meandered in wrong directions and twisted and turned at unexpected places. We thought we were going one way and had to head another.

.
There are moments when it is easy to focus on all of the things that have gone wrong. It is easy to focus on the loss and the heartbreak and the pain, but it is also important to remember all of the things that have gone right.

.
It is important to remember all of the positive experiences and friendships and growth and laughter we have gained. The things we would have never taken part in, lessons we would have never learned, and people we would have never met had we not veered off the desired path.

.
I believe that there are no wrong turnings in life, only paths we had not known we were meant to walk. Remember, the best part of the journey is the surprise and wonder along the way

.
We never know what is around the corner. It could be everything. Or it could be nothing. We need to keep putting one foot in front of the other, and then one day we look back and we have climbed a mountain. The important thing is to keep moving forward.

.
“The path to our destination is not always a straight one. We go down the wrong road, we get lost, we turn back. Maybe it doesn’t matter which road we embark on. Maybe what matters is that we embark.”
Barbara Hall
