Look where you want to go

I’m so often relearning the same lessons over again. I feel like I have spent the past 2 year floundering. My world was thrown so off kilter by having a child, I have felt like I lost a lot of my identity or direction. (Don’t get me wrong, I love being a mom! My son is the most amazing thing that has happened to me). However, I have spent a lot of time recently stopping and wondering, “Where do I go from here?”

If you recall in the story of Alice in Wonderland, at one point Alice was lost. She came to the rabbit and asked him which road she should take. He asked her where she wanted to go. Her reply was, “I don’t know”. His response was, “then it doesn’t matter which path you take”.

This is relative in our own lives. If you don’t know where you are going or which direction you want to go, then it doesn’t matter which path you take. You will not get what you want, if you don’t know what it is. So my challenge is to figure out what I want.

When I learned to ride a motorcycle for the first time, I was told “Look where you want to go and the motorcycle will follow”. I didn’t believe it at first. How could that possibly be right? Then, just as I had been told, I looked to my far right, and my body and bike took the turn.

One nervous man in my class was always afraid of running into things. As a result, he focused on them, and he always hit them. I have recently started changing my focus again onto what I want, and it’s amazing to see those things popping into view.
