Road Closed — Now What?

trees-450854_1920 The road ahead in our personal journey is like no other, and it is not without its challenges. It will have its peaks and valleys, its twists and turns, and its detours and dead ends.

The road may be long and arduous but that is no reason to slow down or quit. The opportunities that lie ahead are waiting for you to discover them, but you won’t discover them if you resign yourself.  And sometimes an opportunity may not have otherwise presented itself had you not been temporarily detoured.

Road closed? Take it as a challenge to be more creative. There is another way.  If something looks impossible, look at it from a different perspective.  What you wish to accomplish can be done, though not in the way you originally thought.

The road ahead, though not always clear and always full of surprises, is your invitation to grow and learn, to reach within yourself to discover strength, determination, discipline, and commitment.  It is your journey, not anyone else’s, and it is one not to be feared.  Signposts will present themselves even in the most difficult terrain.

No matter what challenges you may encounter on your journey, there is always a way around them if not directly through them.  You have what it takes to move forward, even if it means having to travel a side road.  Step confidently into the direction you need to take and travel boldly.  The way will open.
