Done with reflection
I see a fork in the road
Think I’ll pick it up!
The thing about life is that you don’t know what you don’t know, but as soon as you do know it you can no longer sit on the fringes and hide behind ignorance.
No, as soon as you do know it (whatever your IT may be) you stand in a holding room and realize you have to make a decision. And the decision rests squarely on your shoulders.
The self-professed control freaks (like myself) would be ecstatic to know that we have all that power, but what I have come to realize is that my controlling nature is most happy when I am trying to control a situation (of which I have none) or others (of which I have none.)
When there is a fork in the road, you can either be oblivious and step on it, or you can bend over, pick it up, and decide which delectable morsel of life you will pursue.
We have many choices, my friends. We make a million of them every day. The trick to growing old with grace is to finally understand that the only thing we can control is what we think. In our thinking, we create our reality.
So if your current reality isn’t working for you, pick up the darn fork and go a different way!
