The greatest thing in this world is not so much where we stand as in what direction we are moving. – Goethe
Often times my mind tells me that it wants the straight forward path. Impatience kicks in and I just want to get there already. But where? Every day I am learning more deeply that this is not true. It is all of the twists, turns and surprises that make life interesting. Those moments when I quietly say to myself – I never pictured that happening! I am learning not only to love the winding road, but to trust it. If there is a block or an altered route I am practicing having a good laugh and enjoying the scenery. This means celebrating all of the missteps, wrong turns and detours. My day becomes much more fun and interesting when I practice this mindset. I am enjoying the foibles – they are truly part of the great laugh that life has with me when I take myself too seriously.
