Not every path we take in life will be paved. Sometimes we will have to stomp through muddy puddles in our shiny shoes, sometimes we will have to swim over the ocean without knowing how to swim, and sometimes we will end up at the end of the path that is a dead end.

It is not the Path that we take that’s important but it is the Journey itself.

You know what they say: life will not throw at you anything that you can’t handle. So, when you are standing at the cross roads, you know that regardless which path you choose, you will handle it.

To me crossroads are not crossroads, they are checkpoints. Once I find myself standing confused, angry, and hurt, I realize that it is a check point for me to re-evaluate and be honest with myself:  Is this path still for me?

Sometimes it seems that the answer is not for you to give as it might not be you who is asking questions but at the end you know, that everything that happened to you is for you and, yes, no matter how you look, it is still your Checkpoint.

Once you find yourself on a run-away train, you have a choice to make – to stay on a train and see where it leads or jump off while it is running at the full speed and trust yourself, trust your choice, and trust the Universe.

It is so easy to let the anger take over and want to hurt people around you. It is so easy to forget that they are as confused as you are, as lost, and maybe even hurt. They are trying to catch and handle odd curve balls that Life throws at them the same way as you are.  Respect and understanding should be the base for any of your relationships…It is not easy!
