The Fork in the Road

Alright. I need to get this off my chest. I'm not usually one to feel sorry for myself, but we all have those moments when we realise that even our best laid plans have fallen apart in a monumental fashion, right? Right? Or is that just me?!


Late last year I did a little pondering. It involved a little message on the footpath that I quite literally stumbled upon a few years ago; a sign that, at that very point in time, my life needed to change direction. And it did.

But now, some 6 years later, I find myself back at those same crossroads, staring blankly at that lil' chunk o' roadside wisdom and not quite able to convince myself that all is peachy keen. I never really intended for this blog to become an outlet for all my little emo moments, so I'm just going to try to get it all out of the way in one foul swoop. Emo commence.








Emo end.

Ahhhhh, I feel better now! Happy non-emo weekend all! <3



Bah! Finally have my interwebs back and realised that this scheduled post didn't work either! What I WAS going to tell you was that I would be away next week (aka last week) but would line up posts for your viewing pleasure, but then, I presume, some random satellite decided it no longer wanted to provide me with internet or 3G services, and I didn't get the chance. How frightfully rude!

such a balance isn't it...making plans and being with what is. i had a friend explain it like this...when you plant a seed in your garden, you don't go back 20 times a day to see what it's doing...you let it grow its way and enjoy what it becomes.

Honestly I totally understand where you are coming from and can appreciate your concern for goals and where you actually end up. I hope that it doesn't bore you when I say moments like that are what remind us to pick up the pace if we aren't where we wanted to be, or learn to love the place we ended up.

Its not just you! I'm over plans - for me it is just planning to fail! :-)

I totally relate. I thought I knew what I wanted because that's what you have to think to file a successful grad school application... turns out there's much, much more to life than I can fit into one profession. Pondering. Another reason why I started my blog...

Cheers,

PS: Giveaway finally arrived! Thanks again!

I hope things get better for you. I understand so well right now and I'd hate to think anyone is feeling even the slightest bit of what I do.

The thing I've found is that things do get better...sometimes you don't realize it until things go wrong again and you look back. The wheel turns for all and you'll be back up again...as long as you're willing to take a few risks and deal with a bit more hurt, dissatisfaction, and bleak thoughts.

You're not the only one in this boat! But sometimes it's good to strip off the layers of those things that keep us secure and take a good, long look at ourselves! We can learn so much! What doesn't kill ya will make ya stronger! I'm going through similar feelings right now and it's making me take a hard look at myself and it's brought me closer to God! Keep your chin up! :)
