I admire people who can easily adapt to any given situation they are in. Those people who can go with the flow and smile. I am an analyzer. OK, over analyzer. My mind must think things through.
I have always been a researcher; hungry for information that will help me analyze and process and make the best decision I can. I am not perfect; I make mistakes. I honestly try to see the beautiful forest, but some days all I can focus on is the dead tree in front of me.
The journey of life is not a straight paved road. There is hurt, pain and sadness. My goal is to have more days filled with joy, love and happiness.
As we age, and life situations change, we enter many crossroads on our journey. Some decisions are easy, some hard. Some choices enrich our lives, other roads are best untraveled.
The desire to live life to the fullest makes us curious about other people, places and ideas. Our winding road leads us to discover who we really are inside. We grow in confidence to try new things and express our true colors.
Most people try to make the best decisions they can with the information they have at a given time. As time passes and we look back, we need to keep an open mind to change. With age and experience our view of life changes. In hindsight those old decisions may not look ideal, but they probably guided us to make better decisions later on.
The road of life requires courage. There will be people who tell us that we can’t or that we are wrong. Ask us what we are thinking. There will be people who support us, listen to our ideas and share our successes. Do you have the courage to make your own path?
