Peace. Quiet. Calm. Leaves swaying in the wind. Overcast. Tiny rain drops. Light ripples dance in the lake. Couple sits quietly on bench enjoying quiet laughter. Tiny green lizard beckons. I’m scared as always.
30 Minutes Later
Lizard closer. Still windy. Cloudy. Overcast. No rain. Ripples still dance in the lake. Couple’s gone. Still quiet. Peaceful. Serene.
Why can’t our lives be like that? Without worries, fears, disagreements, cruel marketplace competition, and differences. Because…it comes with the territory. We must learn…grow and that only happens oft in times of turmoil.
If you are facing a roadbock, be like nature and Detour. Work to use obstacles, fears and life’s challenges to create opportunities to advance, learn, love deeply, and grow. Cross that Bridge. Detour today.
