One of the hardest things for me is to feel confident that I have taken all the correct roads, all the best turns in my life.
When I came to those busy intersections, did I take the right turn or the wrong turn?
I can see it clearly in my mind.
The left-hand turning lane. It’s right there but….my internal GPS tells me to keep going forward. But I’m sure to second-guess my GPS, as always. If I get into that turning lane I will HAVE to turn left.
The light is green! I need to make a choice. Otherwise I’m holding up traffic (and my life) that follows.
I am a risk taker, yet cautious at the same time.
I watch the movie play out in my head.
Cars and trucks whizzing past me; going straight through the green light. The left-hand turning lane is also full of cars zooming through the green light taking their left hand turn in life.
Then I notice the right-hand turning lane. Yes, why don’t I make the right-hand turn? It might be riskier. It does look like a dark and deserted road.
But it seems to call out to me, to my internal GPS. I clearly feel like I must take this turn no matter how risky it is.
Now, you ask, What if it is a dark and lonely road? What if there is no food, gas or public facilities?
Well then, I make a U-turn and try another direction…..and another, and another, until I find MY road. The one that is meant for me.
Be courageous today! Find YOUR road! Then come back and tell me all about it. I can’t wait to hear YOUR story!
I retired from my traditional job to explore, practice, and create stories for people of all ages.
