MONDAY MUSINGS: A Road Less Traveled

There are times in my life where I feel a shift.  Sometimes it is an unwanted shift and sometimes it is a much needed shift.  And for sometime now, I have felt a rather large hand shoving me forward into an unknown path.  I have been pushing back because I have been reluctant to make a change.  But I know, it's time for me to get off this highway and find a calmer route, perhaps a road less traveled.

This past lovely weekend, my better half and I were out and about and we stumbled on this back road that led to basically nowhere. And what did we find? A sign saying "Gift Store".  We had two choices, continue down the path to nowhere, or make a left hand turn and follow the very winding gravel road down to what  would be an adventure... We took the turn and you know what we found?


And isn't this what life is about, taking side roads, exploring the unknown?  Of course, there will be times that the road is bumpy, and most likely, there will be numerous potholes to go thru, and there will be moments of beauty that may distract us from our course. And I am sure that there will be moments when the path may seem to long, but life always provides us areas where we can sit, rest, reflect and recharge, and at the end of it, all we can hope for is that there will be a beautiful sign welcoming us to the next phase of our lives.  I am about to go and explore where my next road in life takes me, for good or for bad,  it's time and although I am frightened, I am kind of looking forward to veering off this crazy highway onto a road less traveled. 

Wish me luck...

Until Next Time.
