With twist, turns, ups, downs, sickness, death, disappointment, and so often, very few in my corner to lift me when I found myself lacking that “self-starter – go-get-it” drive most are accustomed to seeing me function from, I lost sight of the plan. Frustrated and overwhelmed, I found myself trapped in a past plan…looking for a route back to that road. My mentor would often remind me that I could just start a new road, but being the stubborn, often “one-track-minded” person I am, I grimaced at the thought.
Now today, after many months of trying to get back to a past desired path (plan), I’ve finally realized how critical my elders advice was to my progression as well as the fulfillment of my prior vision. The dips, curves, and sink holes in life were simply there for continued guidance. Once I stopped looking at the changes as “bad” I realized I was actually still on course with my plan.
