Throughout life we encounter turning points. It’s often just a moment. In a split second our lives shift, they make a detour, a right turn, or take a wrong direction. Sometimes it’s hard to see which way that is at the time.
Looking back it’s easier to see the path, even though it may meander at times. When you’re moving along it, the turn ahead is still unknown. But hindsight gives us perspective.
At that point, we may realize we’ve taken a few paths that might have best not been traveled. Or, we’ve missed some opportunities we see the benefit of only in retrospect. Regardless, all we can do is go forward. There is no “rewind” button on life.
We take all we are at this moment and go into the future, hoping to become more ourselves.
