A dip in the road

Events beyond our control may force us to take a dip in the road. Those events may take us down a completely different path from the one we started, may lead us to a different decision we might not otherwise have made.

While any new road may not have been our first choice that doesn’t mean it’s the wrong choice. Sometimes the wrong road is the right choice, even though it’s not the road we had intended or started on, but it’s the road we’re finishing on.

The path of life never runs smooth, but we must learn to accept that things will happen to change our path, so it helps if we’re prepared. Even if the path we find ourselves on is not our original path, things can come good eventually.

Things turn out the way they’re supposed to and that’s okay. Our new set of circumstances can often turn out to be better than our first choice.

  1. I agree that our paths constantly change as we travel along them, sometimes through conscious decisions thoughts, but also subconsciously too. This is often most difficult to accept when that change is brought about though external forces acting on us.

    As you say the path is rarely a smooth one, whichever one we follow.

  2. I think you’re right. Any road we take will eventually lead us towards a path already predestined for us to navigate.

    Perhaps there are no wrong roads; but the curves and bends in the road seem everlasting.

    1. Like you Tim I also believe there are no wrong roads. Whichever road we find ourselves on, that is the road we’re supposed to go down.

      I agree with you that on our less familiar paths, those curves and bends in the road will always seem everlasting.
