We’ve traveled on many roads across Australia and I’ve lost track of the number of times we’ve been faced with decisions and alternatives on which way to go. Which road to take: the high road, the low road, the short cut, the long way. The four wheel drive track, on the way to adventure, or the more boring but reliable way.
Being the adventurers that we are we often take the back roads. Which sometimes leads us into hair raising situations but inevitably always gets us to where we want to go.
When we’re touring we mostly stay on the main roads and we reach our destination in good time. As the saying goes, all roads (eventually) lead to Rome.
Life is full of turning points. And sliding doors and revolving mirrors, with choices we make impacting on how things turn out. I’ve been guilty, more times than I can remember, of second guessing myself, of wondering whether I’ve made the right decision.
However, I’m learning to trust myself. And to accept that the decisions I make will turn out to be the right ones. Whether it’s on the road or off.
It can sometimes feel incredibly daunting but if we believe in ourselves – and not be afraid to seek reassurance – life generally turns out for the best.
There’s usually more than one road that will lead us out. And if there’s not we have to believe that the road less traveled will get us there. More often than not taking risks can lead us to the most amazing places.
And along the way we often meet the most unexpected people that we might otherwise have missed.
New experiences and new opportunities often show themselves to us and surprise us when we least expect it. It can absolutely brighten our way.
May whatever road you’re on lead you to happiness and may the choices you make along the way be decisive ones.
