When You Take A Leap Of Faith

sorry you diedSometimes I wonder why I take the road that I take. Sometimes I look into the darkness in front of me and wonder why in a world I trusted that everything happens for a reason and that I should take the dark path towards the darkness. I wonder why I trust that there is a light at the end of this scary looking road. Especially, when the alternative is a well lit, well known, extremely predictable path.

But then again, you could also ask, why would you not trust that, in the end, everything will be exactly how it needs to be?

I guess, no matter what you do, no matter what choices you make or what path you choose, it will take you somewhere new. Not necessarily better, but definitely new and different.

I always have to remind myself that even if I think I see where I am going, many times it has turned out to be a visual trap. I think I know and I think it is safe but, in reality, it is just your mind playing tricks on you.

How many times have you slipped on something in a well-lit area? How many times have you hit your head or cut yourself in the middle of the day when you supposedly see everything and are aware of surroundings? Would you say that a well-seen path is safer than a path taken in the dark? And I do not mean it literally. I mean it in a way of making life-changing decisions with or without a clear path.

I hate to admit it but I have to say that either way you are still not safe and still have almost same odds of getting hurt and/or going down the wrong rabbit hole. So, there is no way of knowing except when you make a choice to take the road that seems right. YES, even when it is a road embraced by the darkness that leads to who knows where.

I guess the truth is, we do not know where we are going anyways. We don’t know where tomorrow will lead us. We don’t know what is going to happen in 5 minutes. We do not know anything. We make choices that, no matter what, will take us on a journey of unknown events and experiences.

That is LIFE in its glory.

Nothing is given, nothing is promised, nothing is guaranteed, everything that seems right turns out wrong, and everything that seems wrong might be the right thing. I know, too philosophical…

So, here is the answer to the question I had – regardless which road you take, the final destination is not what you think it is.

    The journey is definitely a mystery. Some days are harder than others to accept not having control. I guess it comes back to the AA mantra “one day at a time”.

    • Dace says :

      One day at a time is a heavy burden to bear. If all you have is one day that you managed to survive, that is a hell of a journey to repeat every single day, isn’t it?

      But, in reality, one second at a time and then one minute at a time is all you can hope for. I guess, it is called living… LOL

      • Denise Hisey says :

        Yes, I think there is some truth to “a heavy burden to bear” living one day at a time. For me, one day at a time isn’t for life. It’s for phases. Then I am free for a period of time…the phases continue to get shorter and the freedom continues to get longer. 🙂
