How many times have you come to a crossroad in your life….a place where you need to make a decision about something that not only will affect yourself but the lives of so many others?  We’re all on a path of personal growth in our lives and hope we make the right choices and decisions, one that will cause us no pain.  Let’s be honest, it is not the wonderful and happy things that make us want to move on to other things – it is those times and incidences that caused us pain that forces us to move forward.  For example….who can hold their hand in a fire for a long time….when it starts hurting, your immediate instinct is to move your hand away.  In a way I think life works in a similar way….you get to a point where you know it is too painful…and you move.

Fortunately we should also realize that for us to go forward in this life, we have to go through pain and heartache….. a step closer to a better life.  I have had so many choices I had to make over my lifetime, some were good, and others not so good.  But ultimately I know that I had to walk through each and every experience to bring me to this point in my life.  It has made me the person I am today and I am thankful for that.  I know that there will be many experiences ahead but I am open and willing to embrace whatever comes my way.  We should not rush into anything with blinded eyes…but learn to be patient.  And when we do get to these crossroads in our lives, embrace it and know that they are there to make us a better person. I love my life and am thankful for all the heartache and difficult times that brought me to this point.

Live your life, embrace it….with every heartbeat!!

  1. I’ve had many challenges in my life, many crossroads and bridges…the hardest one for me is still the distance away from loved ones…with these heartaches its still important to be grateful each day for what we have,grateful for those who are close to us and leave a smile on your face..that smile is always free. xx

    I believe to recognize the good you have to know what bad is, to savor peace you have had to know what pain feels like, and to see the light you have had to experience darkness. The things we would have rather never had to experience are sometimes the lanterns along the path.
