We just arrived home from an exotic vacation. Okay, not quite. But we DID leave town! And it WAS a great trip. It simply wasn’t the one we thought we’d be taking.
There are things we can plan for, and unforeseen situations we cannot. Our get-away did not go exactly as we thought it would.
And that brings us to what the Universe wants us to focus on, the current message.
Go where the road takes you.
We begin this life with a blueprint, a Big Picture sort of idea. What we are left to organize on our own, later, are the tiny details. Add to this mix Free Will Choice, and we end up with the types of lives we actually participate in.
Our Team, our loved ones, our own inner compass, all factor in to where we go, what we do, who we spend time with. And, most importantly, how well we bounce back from those “unexpected” bumps in the road, the detours which take us to places we had no clue we’d be going.
It’s a soul lesson, these re-routing maneuvers. We learn from the way we handle it, how we feel, and whether we repeat the same sort of behaviour. Our goal, obviously, is roll along with compassion and understanding.
Each one of us know though, that’s not always how we react. Are we doing better than the last time? Sometimes yes, sometimes no. Are we trying? Alrighty then, that totally counts.
It is definitely the Journey, and not the destination.
Here’s a view from our drive home. It was, as I said, not the trip we thought it would be. But wow, it certainly was a very VERY good one.
Somewhere below Astoria, but above Newport. As the sun releases this day, I am energized and recharged. Enjoy this, it was a gift to me, I’m sharing it with you.
