The Pathway

The pathway of life varies often….

The path may be smooth… while at times it may be rocky and full of pebbles, rocks and particles that get in our way…

While it is important to move forward and conquer the path… Take notice of the rocky path… Notice the shape and size of the rocks….

How does it affect your life? What purpose does it serve? How can you use it? Can you offer it to others through testimony?

I have learned to not merely step over or push the rocks and pebbles away…..

I now stop and pick them up…

I make note of where they are located on my path and how it serves my life.

I savor in the path… smooth or rocky…

Life has a way of changing quite often throughout one’s life… Savor each moment….

Remember each significant pebble or stone on your path… It will tell a story….

    • D,
      Thank you so much for your support! You are a source of light that came to me during a busy time in life…. obtaining my graduate degree was a challenge and our time together made the path awesome to travel ….. 💚💗

  3. I agree with you Tina. Pathways in life do often vary.

    Our journey can be extremely simple or very complicated. With complicated paths, we encounter so many rocks and pebbles, it can become very distracting to reach your end goal. I like the fact that you are able to pause and take note of the sizes and shapes of the rocks you meet along your journey. Most importantly, I love the fact that you didn’t disregard the things you encounter on the smooth paths as well.

    The what, where, when, and how on your paths are vital to the success of your end goals no matter how complicated and rocky your path may be or how simple and smooth your path has been. Making note of where the bumps in the roads are can assist you with similar paths you may encounter in the future. Remembering how smooth a path can be if you maneuver the correct way can encourage you to continue to avoid obstacles in the future.

    Having the awareness to stop and pick up some rocks along the way provides a safer path for the ones that follow you, and this is what makes a person a good leader. Continue to be a leader and others will follow.
