Obstacles or Opportunities?
I was out hiking today and couldn’t help but note the trees blocking my path. I thought about how many of us have issues in our lives that feel as overwhelming and annoying as climbing over fallen trees. I thought about turning around, but then realized I didn’t need to. I could climb over the trees and continue on my way. There’s been times when I’ve had real life obstacles that I knew I could and had to climb over or get through. Yet, other times when I’ve faced obstacles I’ve chosen to go another direction. Making choices means having a clear sense of self. That’s where many of us get stuck and literally spend years looking at those obstacles and doing nothig about them. Are you stuck? Do you wonder if you should keep going or choose another trail?
